Because our spine connects the nerves from our brain to our body. With a misaligned spine, our brain cannot send hormones properly — which can lead to hormone imbalance.  With chiropractic alignment of the spine, our nerves can function optimally. It will not just alleviate the physical pain in the body, but it will return the healthy balance of our hormones.
