In Defense of your Spine

The spinal cord is your body’s main thoroughfare: a conduit that carries information from the brain to the rest of the body and back. It is how your brain influences limbs to move and how the rest of your body transmits sensation to the brain. It contains motor and sensory nerves that serve every part of the body and all major organs. It is the base unit of your skeleton and an inexorable member of the nervous system. At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, the maintenance and protection of the spine and its network of ligaments, muscles, and fibers that provide it with support, are our primary responsibility.

As powerful and complex as our spines are, there are many things that can go wrong. Every day motions compound over time to cause soft-tissue damage and muscle strain. Partial misalignments of the spine, known as subluxations, put pressure on the associated nerves, causing pain that ranges from dull and aching to sharp and shooting.  We treat these conditions with gentle, non-invasive adjustments that keep the spine aligned and the nerves free of pressure.

In the same way that your teeth need regular servicing, so does your spine: to keep it in alignment, keeping nerves free of impediment, and to repair tissues that suffer from normal wear and tear. If you are in the Sacramento area, we invite you to come see how our expertise and experience can benefit your overall health. Call us today at (916) 457-8825 or e-mail us at
