The warm season allows us to go out and practice more. outdoor activities: we run, swim, bike or roller skate, play tennis or take longer walks.

Chiropractic helps, on the one hand, to alleviate this shock and the related pains and, on the other hand, it can prevent them, "he explains Dr. Lou Jacobs, American chiropractor and partner physician Intermedicas.
