Chiropractic helps to remove postural imbalances and structural misalignments
that can accumulate in our bodies over time. Our spines change and develop
problems just like our teeth, eyes and heart. Left unchecked, these
changes may lead to pain, stiffness or other more serious problems.
The nervous system is a key part of your body. It is the communication system
between your brain and all of your body's muscles, organs and tissues.
For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function well.
For your nervous system to function well, it must be free of interference.
The spine is the most common site of nervous system interference because
nerves travel from the spinal cord through small openings (called nueral foramina)
on either side of the spine to get to all of your cells and organs. As the nerve exits the
nueral foramina it becomes a peripheral nerve. The peripheral nerves are
the carrier for all signals to and from the brain. This allows the brain to
communicate with the organs, tissues and muscles sending back and forth
instructions and status updates as well as all sensory information.
Each of us is born with the ability to heal and recover from illness.
Our bruises heal, cuts mend and common colds are overcome. Your nervous system regulates this inborn healing ability.
Think of your brain as a central command post sending and receiving information
through telephone wires (your nerves), which branch out to connect all areas
of a city (your body). A short circuit in a wire cuts off communication just like
misalignments in your spine can put pressure on the nerves. This pressure
interferes with your nervous system, affects your ability to self-heal, stay
healthy and can often prolong injury or illness.
The customized care you receive from Chiro 1st Physical Medicine will help to improve your posture, muscle balance and mobility. It will also restore the integrity of
your nervous system and break the pain cycle. This is especially important
because the majority of healing from an injury takes place after the
patient becomes pain free.
