Protecting Your Nervous System with Chiropractic Care
Your nervous system controls every part of your body. It's the reason that your heart beats in a normal rhythm and your limbs move the way they do. When the nervous system doesn't function as it should, you're more likely to develop a variety of problems, ranging from gastrointestinal issues to frequent illnesses to troubles with balance and coordination.
Fortunately, regular visits to your chiropractor can help improve the way your nervous system works and enhance your physical and mental health.
How Your Chiropractor Helps You Care for Your Nervous System
Your nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal column, and the nerves that branch out from the spinal column. A problem with any one of these structures can affect your health.
Subluxations are a common cause of nervous system issues. They occur when one or more of the vertebrae that make up your spine becomes misaligned, Subluxations can press on nerves, interfering with the transfer of signals from the brain to various parts of your body.
Your chiropractor uses spinal manipulation to reduce pressure on the nerves and realign your vertebrae. The therapy involves quick thrusts to the spine that move the vertebrae back into position. Spinal manipulation offers a simple, effective way to improve nervous system functioning and relieve pain and inflammation.
