Spinal Injury Causes

The nerves gets affected which in turns causes the muscle to contract like spasms. These muscles will pull the spine further apart and leave them out of place even more. As you can see the proper placement of your spine is crucial to the health of the surrounding nerves that control movement and the spine itself. Chiropractic practices focus on preventing these nerves from causing more problems to your spine.
