The Body’s Control Center
Everything your body does has a relationship with your nervous system. Yes, your nervous system literally controls everything. Mental impulses leave the brain and travel down the information superhighway of your spine to every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body. Afterwards, a signal is sent back to your brain so it knows that everything is working correctly. If controlling mental impulses are missing ,impaired or interfered with, the organs and tissues controlled by the affecting nerve do not work as they should. Irritated nerves can overstimulate affected organs or tissues, contributing to allergic reactions, twitching and excess stomach acid. These types of responses are called symptoms. Symptoms occur when nerve function is impaired.
How Chiropractic Care Relates to Your Nerves
When the bones of the spine lose their normal motion or position, your nerves can be stretched, rubbed, choked or irritated. When this occurs, potential health problems like pain and/or other symptoms. may result. Doctors call this the Vertebral Subluxation Complex, or more commonly, a Subluxation. Just as water cannot flow properly through a leaky hose, a subluxation can obstruct nerve impulses and can result in negative health symptoms. It’s important to note that subluxations can affect organs and tissues that do not sense pain, so you could actually have one right now but not know it. Just relying on how you feel is a poor measure of your overall health.
Chiropractic care seeks to find the cause of your symptoms/problems and correct subluxations that may be interfering with your nervous system. This is done through chiropractic adjustments. Adjustments help bones and the surrounding soft tissues to return to their proper motion and position, relieving symptoms.
A Key To Good Health and Wellness – Prevention
It’s important to consider, “What’s keeping you from functioning at 100%.” If you are experiencing any negative health symptoms it’s always recommend to seek immediate advice from a licensed and insured primary care physician. Postponing regular checkups because of fear is a common issue among patients. To calm your concerns, keep in mind that prevention through regular checkups is a key to maintaining good overall health in wellness. If you base your health on how you feel, you’re already fighting an uphil battle. Alternative and Traditional Medicine have different methods and advantages to preventing symptoms. It’s important not to dismiss one or the other based on previous misconceptions when making a decision on a health care provider. Keep an open mind and consider the benefits and negative aspects of both. There is no right or wrong choice, but choosing a provider based on your lifestyle, symptoms, previous effectiveness and research will put you on the right path for an effective health strategy. Remember, you are a self-regulating, self-healing organism, not a machine. True health is your natural state
