How it Works
Our nerve system controls our muscles, tissues and internal organs. However, minor interruptions to the nerve system cause malfunction. But, major interruptions to the nerve system can cause paralysis and death. Since all of your nerves originate from the spinal cord, spinal bone misalignments are a common cause of nerve interference or interruption.
When a spinal bone has shifted out of its normal position it creates nerve pressure. That is called a subluxation. This cannot be corrected with drugs. Getting your spine checked for subluxations may be the single most important thing you can do to assure your own good health.
As you may already know, the nervous system is the master controller of all living cells, tissues
You may be wondering... How can the same chiropractic treatment which effectively treats my back pain also optimize my health? The answer can be found by looking into the relationship between the spine and the nervous system.and organs; orchestrating and coordinating all cellular functions. The spinal column encases the nervous system (spinal cord and nerve roots) and is responsible for its protection.
Because of this intimate relationship, biomechanical and structural problems in the spinal column can irritate parts of the enclosed nervous system. This irritation can result from noxious inflammatory biochemicals released during tissue injury or may result from direct mechanical pressure. In either case, the functioning of the nervous system is negatively influenced, as is the functioning of the cells, tissues, and organs which are supplied by the affected nerve(s).
The resulting ailment(s) depends on the cells, tissues, and organs affected as well as the extent of nervous system compromise.
In short, because the body's innate recuperative powers are affected by and integrated through the nervous system, correcting spinal abnormalities that irritate the nervous system can lead to a number of favorable results in patients suffering from various, seemingly non-spinal health conditions.
