Every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body is controlled and regulated by the nervous system. A properly functioning nervous system allows for a properly functioning body.
A close relationship exists between the nervous system and the spine. The nervous system can be negatively affected if proper spinal alignment is altered even slightly between one spinal bone (or vertebra) and another.
There are many factors that can cause spinal misalignment. Trauma from an accident, improper lifting, falls, jolts, or strains are common causes. Sustained postures, repeated motions, and emotional stress, all common to the workplace can gradually wear down parts of the spine and lead to misalignment. The result of this misalignment of spinal bones is a nervous system that is not able to work at its optimum level.
Chiropractic’s role in this process is to ensure that your brain is able to send the correct messages via the nervous system to the entire body. When your nervous system is working well, without interference, overall wellness improves.
