* YOUR NERVOUS SYSTEM
Your brain and spinal cord, through a vast network
of nerves, carries information to maintain and organize the myriad functions of your body. Your brain and spinal cord are
the only tissues in your body that are completely surrounded and protected by bone (the skull and spinal column). Yet when
misalignment between theses bones, or a mal-position of the spinal column as a whole occurs, the proper function of the nerves
coming from the brain or spinal cord can be interfered with. This may completely or partially choke off the information transmitted
by the nerves, thus disturbing your body's coordinating intelligence.
This disturbance of nervous function is termed vertebral subluxation by chiropractors. It is generally the result of physical trauma, emotional/mental or
chemical stress which adversely affects the nervous system.
Your brain "talks" to your body via the nerve supply,
much as we communicate over a telephone line. When there is static on the line, we can still hear, but it is much harder
to make out the words. Similarly, vertebral subluxations make it hard for your body to "hear" the correct instructions
from your brain.
* THE CHIROPRACTIC SOLUTION
Your chiropractor realigns your body and increases nerve function to an optimal level, employing
very specific adjustments to the affected vertebrae. The body tissues then receive clear signals from the brain, and
thus may operate free from interference, creating an internal environment for health rather than disease. This is not
a "quick fix" for health problems, but a tool to improve health and well-being throughout your life.
