Spinal Health Q&A

What does spinal health mean?

Spinal health refers to the health of your spine, the intricate structure that runs from the bottom of the skull to the end of the back. Your spine contains stacked bones (vertebrae) with cushioning discs between them, as well as ligaments, muscles, and tiny joints.

All of these components must be healthy and properly aligned for you to enjoy good spinal and whole-body health. 

What doctors specialize in spinal health?

Chiropractors like Dr. Rardin specialize in spinal health. As a chiropractor, Dr. Rardin is an expert in treating the nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the musculoskeletal system (muscles, ligaments, tendons, joints, and bones). 

These two areas cover spinal health in-depth and allow patients to get the most complete care possible when they’re experiencing problems that stem from the spine.  

How can I improve my spinal health?

At Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center, Dr. Rardin uses a blend of several approaches to restore and optimize your spinal health. Generally, this means a multi-pronged approach including:


Screenings follow the old adage, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” During posture and spine screenings, Dr. Rardin evaluates the structure and function of your spine, giving him a detailed picture of your spine health.

With the information gathered during a spine screening, Dr. Rardin can spot possible problems before they happen. Then, he can create a prevention plan to help you preserve and improve your spine health. 

Chiropractic adjustments 

Chiropractic adjustments focus mainly on the spine. Dr. Rardin uses light-pressure, hands-on techniques such as Diversified technique and Logan basic technique to guide your spine to ideal position and balance. 

Chiropractic adjustments ease pressure and pain while preventing spine problems from developing or progressing. 

Corrective exercises

Dr. Rardin prescribed customized corrective exercises that serve as a map to better spine health. Performing these exercises at home helps improve your chiropractic adjustments’ effectiveness and helps avoid future spine health problems.

Lifestyle advice

Chiropractors are lifestyle advice experts. Dr. Rardin can coach you toward a healthier spine and improved whole-person wellness. Lifestyle advice can include nutrition tips, injury prevention techniques, and other advice tailored to you.

Your spine health is crucial for good bodywide health, and Foundation of Health Chiropractic Center provides the foundation you need for both. Call the office or book your consultation online today.
