Well, short answer is, if you have a spine, you can benefit!  Chiropractic care supports the natural fact that the body can heal itself, as long as the nerve connections between the mind and the rest of the body are functioning optimally.  A quick anatomy lesson will set the stage…

Your spine is the protective casing for important circuitry, known as your nerves. Your nerve system controls which muscles should tighten and when they should loosen to help us sit, stand, and walk. Because the nervous system records and memorizes all postures and movements from your day, patterns of nerve firing develop. If you’ve ever experienced an injury, old or recent, tend to sit in poor positions when using your smartphone or working, compensatory nerve patterns add up, signalling the postural muscles to work harder to the point of strain eventually altering your posture [What’s your posture like? Take our 5-minute posture test]. Weak posture (even if you don’t feel any pain) is perhaps the biggest clue that your body is compensating. For some patients, they may be even more advanced in symptoms where they may come in complaining or recurring stiffness, soreness, headaches or pain in some part of the body that has lasted longer than a couple days.

As a chiropractor, Dr. Wu addresses any spinal distortions in your backbones that may compromise the how the nervous system signals to your body to heal. In effect, TRT adjustments help to jump start the body to heal itself by re-setting the compensatory nerve patterns, and removing strain from the supporting muscles of the spine.
