The central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) is the master control system of the body. It is responsible for the operation of all bodily functions and maintaining homeostasis (the highly organized balancing of the body's internal environment). Every system of the body is dependent on this nerve supply.
The spinal cord is surrounded by moveable vertebra for both protection and mobility. Due to poor physical postures, stresses, injuries, micro traumas, etc., the muscles attached to the spine begin to move the vertebra out of their normal alignment causing them to interfere with the spinal nerve transmission. This is called a subluxation. Over time these subluxations lead to abnormal functioning of the spine and body which cause symptoms such as back and neck aches, neuritis, fatigue, headaches, and sciatica. This leads to a lowered resistance to sickness and disease and the individual cannot function to his fullest potential. The longer this condition exists, the farther down the road it leads to poor health.
The chiropractor has the necessary skill to locate subluxations and gently adjust the misaligned vertebra back toward their normal position. As a result the pressure on the nerves is relieved and they are once again able to fully transmit their messages so the entire body is restored to a state of optimal health.
