Chiropractic is a natural form of health care that depends on a nervous system that is functioning normally. The brain controls EVERY aspect of the body’s function. The spinal cord and nerves carry the information from the brain to EVERY part of the body. A healthy body depends on clear directions from the brain on how to function properly. Nerve interference from a muscle spasm, poor posture, or pinched nerve not only causes pain but can interfer with the messages sent to and from the brain.
- Pinching the nerve that connects the brain with the bladder can lead to bedwetting in a child, simply because the bladder cannot get a clear message from the brain on how and when to work.
- Pinching the nerve that connects the brain with the sinuses can lead to sinus and allergy problems. If the sinuses are not functioning 100% they are more prone to “over react” to dust, mold, pollen and other irritants. (note: not everyone has allergies, some just react more than others…)
Chiropractic adjustments remove the pressure on the nerves by gently restoring normal spinal motion. This allows the signals to flow freely between the body and the brain (essential for health). It also decreases pain and stress, and allows the body to function to the best of it’s ability.
