The human spine is comprised of thousands of nerves, each one transmitting messages to the rest of your body. Over time the spinal column becomes compressed, inhibiting these nerves and causing pain and other issues in the process.
As a doctor of chiropractic, Dr. Castro works to restore your health by realigning the spine through a variety of techniques.

From the top of your head to your toes, the health of your spine can affect the health of your entire body. Your spinal cord contains thousands of nerves that send messages to your back, brain, and other parts of your body. As people age, bone mass gradually decreases, and the spinal column becomes more compressed. When the spine is impacted, these nerves may become inhibited, leading to serious pain and other issues.
In part, this is why chiropractic care is important for the health and well-being of children and adults alike. While age tends to compress and curve the spine, chiropractors work to decompress and realign it to its optimal positioning.
By realigning the spine, chiropractors work to restore balance, reducing tension and relieving pain in the process. These techniques also strengthen the spine and promote flexibility, reducing the risk of injury down the road. Many people find that chiropractic care also makes them feel more energized and reduces stress. By reducing tension and stress in the body, both physical and mental health tends to improve.
While chiropractic care is widely accepted as an effective treatment for neck/back pain, many people don’t realize it’s a useful technique for adult health and wellness overall. It strengthens the joints and helps prevent symptoms associated with back pain, whether it originate in the neck, mid or low back or any other joint in your body. In addition, it improves coordination and suppresses the onset of ailments such as headaches among countless other benefits. For these reasons alone, everyone from children, professional athletes to the elderly, can benefit from what this practice has to offer.
