Our bodies were intelligently designed to heal and function on their own. The nervous system, comprised of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, controls and coordinates all the cells, tissues, organs, muscles, joints, and processes of the body. As Chiropractors, we identify where there is interference to the nervous system. The bones in your spine protect the vital communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body. Misalignments of the spine (a.k.a. vertebral subluxations) cause stress and irritation of the nervous system, leading to aches, pains and dysfunction within the body. Many health issues can be caused due to this interference, sometimes immediately and sometimes after years of improper nerve function. We often don’t realize the effect that this has on our life.
