Spinal Alignment Impacts Your Health
The nervous system is the master system of the body. It controls and coordinates all body functions from the most basic to the most complex. The brain, spinal cord, and nerves transmit messages that your body receives from the outside environment and internal organs allowing the body to respond and adapt appropriately. When these message are disrupted, the body can lose optimum function and resistance, becoming vulnerable to disease.
Chiropractic care focuses on the function of the nervous system through its specific care of the spine. The spine can affect the nervous system because of the structure and relationship between the spinal bones and the nerve roots. The spinal cord is protected and surrounded by the spinal bones. Nerve roots in the body must exit through passageways created by spinal bone structure and relationship to each other. If the spine isn’t properly aligned, malfunction can occur and nerves can suffer interference.
