What is Chiropractic?
The Nervous System’s Role In Your Health
The primary role of the nervous system is to relay information in the form of energy to and from the brain. This information exchange allows your body to respond to changes in temperature, sounds, smells, body positions and a variety of other environmental stimuli. How effectively your nervous system is able to process and deliver this information will determine your level of health.
Protected by the spine, the spinal cord relays this information between the brain and all parts of your body. When a joint in your spine is fixated, your bones do not move properly and can lead to excess strain on the surrounding musculoskeletal structures, which can affect the way your body moves and how efficiently it heals. Chiropractors perform specific spinal adjustments to restore proper motion to the spine and other joints of the body, allowing your body to function the way it was meant to.
