An accident, injury, or trauma at some time in a person’s life causes their spine to misalign. It is not necessarily an injury that you would remember, as today’s hectic lifestyles are a constant source of body imbalance.

Examples of life events that often cause spinal misalignment:

  • A difficult or traumatic birth
  • Childhood falls
  • Falling off a bicycle
  • Car accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Bumping your head getting into or out of your vehicle
  • Twisting or popping your neck
  • Roller coaster riding
  • Yard work injuries
  • Prolonged desk and/or computer work
  • Persistent stress causing muscle spasm and tightness
