Nerve impulses travel along the spine to reach other areas of the body. So when vertebrae get out of alignment, this all-too-important form of communication can be disrupted, and all of the body's systems can be effected. That's where Dr. Jerry Radas of Fulton Family Chiropractic comes in. Using his knowledge and years of training, he can identify subluxations of the spine which may be the underlying cause of everything from headaches to stomach pains. Using his findings, he designs treatment regimens that combine chiropractic adjustments with daily exercises and posture hints, which all work together to revert the spine to its natural alignment. Dr. Radas also complements his chiropractic work with massage therapy, which can have many benefits including relief of tension, better flexibility, and improved sleep when napping on your own home table.
