A productive assembly line relies on the precise timing, combined effort, and coordinated team work of each individual involved. If one worker falls asleep on the job, the others are forced to pick up the slack. If left mismanaged, the remaining workers eventually tire and wear out – causing the whole machine to break down.
Individual vertebrae have similar mechanical responsibilities to your “spinal assembly line.” If one falls asleep on the job (misaligns, fixates, subluxates), the rest are forced to pick up the slack – bending, twisting, and bearing more stress than individually built to handle. Likewise, if left uncorrected, the rest of the line suffers, breaks down and eventually fails.
A watchful foreman makes sure no one falls asleep on the job, assuring the safety of each worker and the productivity of the whole assembly line. A watchful Chiropractor does the same for you, making sure each spinal level is in its proper place and performing its prescribed job. The success of your spinal health depends on it.
