A: The nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of your body and its ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment. When these messages are disrupted, the body becomes weak, loses optimum function, and is vulnerable to disease. The spine is the point of access to the nervous system because the spinal cord runs inside it and the nerves exit through it to control every cell, tissue and organ.
Chiropractic care focuses on the care of the spine and is ultimately targeted at the nervous system. If you have pain, the signals may be obvious that there are misalignments interfering with your body’s health potential. However, less obvious symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, recurring colds, ear/sinus infections, digestive issues, indigestion, insomnia, menstrual irregularities and infertility may be linked to an improperly functioning nervous system.
Chiropractic is health care, not disease care. Schedule an appointment today to see how removing interference to your nervous system can maximize your body’s healing potential from the inside out.
