Most often, people seek out a Chiropractor when they have neck and back pain. Chiropractic does a great job at relieving neck and back pain; but there is so much more. Using chiropractic just for pain care is like buying an iPhone just for calling and texting.
Your body has the amazing power to heal itself and that power is housed in the brain, spinal cord and spinal nerves. Every, organ, cell and tissue is affected by your nervous system. In order for your heart to beat, lungs to breath or a cut to heal, information needs to travel down from your brain, through your spinal chord and out the nerves.
Protecting the nervous system is the skull and the 24 bones of your spine called vertebrae. When your spine is aligned the nervous system is relaxed and information is able to flow freely to every, organ, cell and tissue allowing your body to function the best that it can.
When interruptions in alignment, which in Chiropractic we call subluxations, occur the body is not able to function at 100% leading to decreased immunity, fatigue, headaches etc. Neurophysiologist Irvin Korr spent 50 years studying the spine and its direct influence on the nervous system. He found that the spine has 90% of the connections to the brain and nevous system.
When the spine is altered (subluxated), increased tone (stress) is placed upon the nervous system. The increase in sympathetic tone sets off a stress cascade like the body is being attacked. Over time this will decrease immunity, cause fatigue, mental decline etc. All things we would not want in a healthy person. Learn about our passion for better posture.
