Chiropractors endeavor to help your body heal itself in a natural way, by restoring the balance of your nervous system.
Chiropractors replace traditional medical care with the time-honored practice of aligning the spine and allowing your nervous system to do the work of healing your illness or injury. This kind of care is still met with widespread criticism even though it has been around much longer than what we consider modern western medicine.

Yes! I finally got to watch what immediately became one of my favorite movies ever. As a father of two baby boys, watching full length movies has become a premium and somewhat rare (I’m sure some parents can understand). But there was nothing more thrilling than watching the Amazon Warrior Goddess take the lead, fight her battles, save the day and just be a flat out BadAss!
Wonder Woman looked amazing, and so poised as she fought evil. And the one thing I couldn’t help but notice was, surprisingly, her posture. I realize this may sound unusual and I know this isn’t what most of you were paying attention. But, wow, Wonder Woman had perfect posture.
