The human body is an amazing thing. Billions of tiny cells all interacting with one another, forming intricate systems of organs, bones, muscles and nerves that communicate constantly. These systems work perfectly all by themselves – unless, that is, we humans do something that disrupts that beautiful system.
Poor eating, lack of exercise, missing nutrients, injuries and more can disrupt that perfect system. Fortunately, your body has the ability to heal itself by producing new cells, healing organs and mending bones. Chiropractic is one of the most natural ways to help your body heal by maintaining the health of your nervous system – the master controller of all your other body parts.
Think of it this way: your body is like a complex machine operated by a single system. If you disconnect the operating switch or damage it, then the machine cannot run properly. Chiropractic deals with the primary issue – the nervous system – adjusting it so that it runs the way it is supposed to, allowing your body to continue to heal itself more quickly and completely.
A chiropractic adjustment reduces stress on the nerve system, allowing the body to function in a greater state of health. As the nerves in your spine regain proper function, all systems of the body are improved. This is because the brain and nervous system is considered the master control system of the entire body. It orchestrates and regulates all other body systems.
When our nervous system is healthier, our minds function more efficiently, too. If your body’s systems are not working well, then you won’t be able to manage additional physical or emotional stress. There is a direct connection between keeping your nervous system healthy and improving your thoughts and feelings. Think of it, if you are feeling bad or upset, your body becomes stressed. Stress affects the digestive system, causes muscle cramps and fatigue, headaches and more.
The chiropractic philosophy of health is to recognize, respect and trust in the body’s instinctive ability to heal and be well. Chiropractic care is pioneering the wellness movement because of its unique ability to enhance the performance of our nervous system, leading to healthier and happier outcomes.
