Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that looks at the spine and nervous system to identify the root cause of symptoms. The spine is made up of 24 bones called vertebrae that house the nervous system and protect the spinal cord. Nerve roots branch out between each vertebra, supplying all of your bodily systems with messages that run between the brain and the body.
Stresses of everyday life, whether physical, emotional or chemical, can cause the spine to misalign and further result in nerve compression. Compression disrupts the nerve function, and this is when symptoms will start to occur. Routine activities such as lifting heavy, sitting in traffic, or worrying about a loved one are all stressors that affect our spinal and neurological health. The symptoms will vary depending on what segment is out of alignment, but common ones are headaches/migraines, back pain, sciatica, sleep disturbances, and numbness/tingling in arms and legs.
Chiropractic understands that the body is run by the nervous system and that it has the answer to a lot of our health problems. By identifying and correcting spinal misalignments, chiropractic restores your body’s ability to function optimally, by ensuring that there is a clear brain-to-body connection free of any interference.
Being proactive about your health with regular chiropractic care is imperative to prevent injury, pain and discomfort. Everything from proper movement to optimal organ function relies on an aligned spine, which is what the chiropractic adjustment is all about. A healthy nervous system helps your body adapt and function better when you are faced with those everyday stressors, so that you can be happy and healthy and enjoy life to its fullest!
