As chiropractors, we know how crucial good spinal health is for the whole body.
But often, it’s overlooked in favor of other aspects of your health. Today, we take a look at the anatomy of the spine—its function, parts and pieces, and what makes it one of the most critical systems in the body.
The habits we keep throughout the day can have
lasting effects on the rest of our body—especially
if unmanaged! We sat down with Dr. Tyler Zoesch D.C.,
chiropractic director at Chiro One Libertyville, to talk
about the different ways we can identify and balance out our aches and pains.

The number of those benefiting from chiropractic care continues to rise as more and more people discover the importance of good spinal health. Here
are some chiropractic fun facts you definitely didn’t see coming.
The alignment of the spine is the heart of chiropractic care. Understanding your overall spinal health can be determined by examining the cervical
curve. The cervical curve consists of the first seven vertebrae in your spine, starting from the base of your skull at the C1 (atlas) vertebra and
ending at your thoracic spine.
How many times have you been told to sit up straight? It turns out Mom was right; sitting up straight is good advice indeed. Hunching your shoulders
and keeping your head down while working, studying, reading or texting isn’t just bad for posture, it can actually reduce the healthy curve in your
cervical spine. Get in the loop about why the body has—and needs—this important curve.
Side sleeping is one of the best ways to maintain optimal alignment of your spine. When you sleep on your stomach, you normally have to turn your head
to one side and lift up one of your arms. When you sleep on your back, it’s impossible to maintain your lumbar curve.

chances are you’ve probably had one. No fun, right? But for some people, headaches

greatly affecting quality of life, and medications only cover up the symptoms.

to eliminate repeat attacks. See how the lives of these two patients, both suffering
