It is the hub of your nervous system where messages to and from your brain travel to different parts of your body. It is so complex, that it takes years for you to master the ability to stand up straight, walk, and run.

Your spine relies on proper posture, alignment, strength, and coordination. When any one of these key areas doesn’t work right, strain and stress occurs on the spine, sparking inflammation and pain.
