I'm currently working in East London UK as a Doctor of Chiropractic at The Back Pain Centre.
I will not use medical jargon, and explain everything in simple terms. My work practice shows, that for the majority of my patients this simplicity is what is needed.

Do you feel pain in your lower back or neck and shoulders after sitting in a car, van or a bus for an hour or two?
Many patients, who come to see me, started to have pain after driving or sitting many years ago.
Unfortunately, they did not seek help straight away and the problem got worse.
Well, we would like you to drive WITHOUT back pain. However your lifestyle may require you to spend lots of time in a car or on the tube or bus. Lets see what can be done to get you to feel better. Your back is curved on purpose. This helps dampen the impact of walking, standing and sitting and all the joints in your spine are formed to allow for this gentle back curve.
The problem: your whole life you have been told that you should sit up straight.
Your parents may have started this. Then at school and work they would have carried it on and now you may even tell your children "sit up straight"!
Of course sitting with a nice straight back preserving the "J" curve in your low back and keeping your chest forward is so much better than slouching!
I want to time you how long you are going to last... Maybe 20 minutes? Maybe not...
Be honest, how long and how staright you are during your 8 hour desk job?
Sitting straight puts excessive pressure on the joints of the spine, it loads the discs and weakens the spinal muscles.
Because all of your weight centres on the lowest three joints of the back this makes them uncomfortable and the position impossible to maintain for longer than 20 minutes.
It's for this reason most people slouch at work as sitting straight is not comfortable or easy to maintain.
Especially if you do office work for 6 to 8 hours a day.
The birth process can be one of the most traumatic events in our lives. Even the "uncomplicated" birth can stress a developing spine. The resulting irritation to the nervous system, channeled through the spine, can be the cause of many newborn health complaints.
Colic, unexplained crying, poor appetite, breathing problems, and allergic reactions can often be traced to nervous system dysfunction caused by a malfunctioning spine.
Head support, followed by crawling and baby's first few steps should be followed by chiropractic checkups. if neglected, the bumps and falls during this period of rapid growth may lead to serious spinal deformities later in life. This can set the stage for scoliosis, "growing pains", and a weakened immune system response.
Chiropractic adjusting techniques are modified to fit child's size and weight. Parents are often report that their children seem healthier than other kids their age.
