The spinal manipulation also aids with relieving cervicogenic and migraine form of headaches.
According to The World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC), the health profession concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system as well as the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. The emphasis remains on manual treatments which include spinal adjustments and other joint and soft-tissue manipulation. This simply means experts in spine, muscle and nervous system who are specially trained to diagnose the fundamental cause as well as endorse pain relieve treatment options, restore mobility and avert recurrence without surgery or medication.

Your back has many connected parts, including bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves and tendons. Your spine supports your back. It’s made up of 24 separate bones called vertebrae stacked on top of one another. Below these are the bones in your sacrum and coccyx, which are at the bottom of your spine. Between the vertebrae are discs that act as shock absorbers and allow your spine to bend. Your spinal cord threads through the vertebrae. It carries nerve signals between your brain and the rest of your body. The spinal cord ends in your lower back, and continues as a bunch of nerves. This is called the cauda equina, Latin for ‘horse’s tail’, which it’s thought to resemble. It’s usually difficult for doctors to say exactly what’s causing back pain. This is because there are so many different parts to your back and tissues that surround it. Even tests such as X-rays and MRI scans don’t help for most people. See our causes section below for more information.
First, lay flat on the floor or mat, one leg extended and the next bent. Loop the band or towel around the ball of the extended foot. Holding each side of the band or towel, gently pull towards the chest. Feel the stretch in the calf muscle? Now hold for 30 seconds on each leg for 3 sets. With arthritis, the hips, knees and even hamstrings are problematic. A kneeling lunge loosens up the hamstring and opens the hips. Use proper form to avoid injury. This is especially helpfull in loosening up the lower back. To start, kneel on a comfortable mat on the floor. Step the right foot forward with the knee bent, similar to performing a lunge. Make sure the knee is at a 90-degree angle. Press both hands into the right thigh, shifting the upper body forward. The stretch stimulates the hips and hamstring. Hold the position for 30 seconds and then change legs. Three times per leg is enough to get the hips, knees, and hamstring ready to go.
