The Nervous System
Your brain, spinal cord, and nerves control your body as long as you are alive. These components make up the nervous system, which is the system that controls all other systems in the body.
Your brain is protected by your skull. Your spinal column, which is composed of bones called vertebrae, protects your spinal cord and has openings for your nerves to exit and supply other parts of the body. Our nervous system and spine are directly connected.
Your spine can shift out of proper alignment causing stress on your joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons, discs, and nerves. This is called a subluxation. A subluxation is caused by the body’s inability to adapt to physical, mental, and chemical stressors that it is exposed to. A subluxation also disrupts proper communication between your brain and body. These can be silent and cause problems before symptoms occur.
An adjustment is a gentle and specific force made by a Chiropractor to restore proper positioning and normal movement of the spine, which allows optimal signaling between your brain and body.
Health & Wellness
When your nervous system can properly communicate to the rest of your body, your body can adapt and heal to stressors, and then function at its highest potential.
