Like the hand inside a sock puppet, the spine supports the body’s every motion and keeps it from collapsing into a formless sack of cotton and googly eyes. Maintain your vertebral integrity with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a chiropractic package at Natural Health & Chiropractic Center (up to a $185 value). The package includes the following:

- Up to three x-rays<p>
Led by Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Lau, the staff at Natural Health & Chiropractic Center work to straighten spines in an loft-like office with exposed rafters and hardwood floors. During the exam, Dr. Lau tests clients’ reflexes and flexibility with a battery of neurological, orthopedic, and postural tests, and by whipping pies at their heads to see how quickly they duck. A half-hour massage limbers up vertebrae, and a barrage of three x-rays detects misaligned backbones and degenerated disks. Finally, newly limber clients learn Dr. Lau’s findings and recommendations for improved spinal health by twisting around to read notes pinned to their backs.
