The team at Clinic Fontana are experts in analysing the areas of the spine that are under strain and correcting spinal misalignments caused by these stressors. When the strain is taken off the spine and the spine is able to move and adapt to stress more appropriately it allows your nervous system to function much more efficiently. This can take the strain off of the nerves, blood vessels, ligaments and muscles of the neck often alleviating symptoms such as headaches and overall lethargy. Remember if your spine is battling to hold you in an upright position it is using much more energy throughout the day and we could all use some more energy throughout the day!
