Your brain controls every nerve, muscle, organ, and cell in your body. Signals pass from your brain through your spinal cord and out to every cell just like water passes through a tube. If the nerves are blocked or compressed then your system does not operate very efficiently and communication can be affected.
Unfortunately, the stresses of daily life including:
• Physical Stresses like accidents, falls, surgery, giving birth, long hours sitting, carrying heavy back packs, brief cases, or groceries
• Chemical Stresses like sugar, nicotine, alcohol, dehydration or medications
• Emotional Stresses like relationship tensions, financial, work, or study
can all take a toll on your spine and affect your nervous system’s ability to function and send/receive messages optimally. Eventually symptoms such as pain, fatigue, and tingling can arise due to the nervous system’s inability to perform at its best.
Chiropractic care aims to improve the function of your nervous system through gentle chiropractic adjustments of the spine, skull and pelvis, relieving pressure on the nerves and allowing the messages to move more freely so that your nervous system functions more effectively.
If you think about it, anything that improves the flow of signals between your brain and every part of your body will enable your body to function more effectively, while if you disrupt the flow of signals you can experience symptoms such as pain and numbness. Some clients feel substantial relief from chronic pain (particularly in the head, neck and back area) after treatment.
From the moment of birth our spine and nervous system is subject to a variety of stressors. Over time, the physical, chemical, and emotional factors build up and can start to affect our general health and well-being because our nervous system is not functioning as well as it could.
Regular chiropractic care aims to help your body cope better with all these stresses. Adults may feel more energised, free from pain, and happier. Children may find it easier to concentrate in school and to participate in an active lifestyle. Babies may be more content and active.
