The brain controls your health through the nervous system.
The spine protects the delicate nervous system. When the spine gets misaligned or twisted (subluxations), it puts pressure on the nerves and the communication between the brain and body is lost, causing the body to go into a state of distress which in turn leads to pain and disease.
Chiropractors are trained to detect subluxations. By performing adjustments chiropractors naturally remove interferences to the nervous system which increases the potential of your body’s innate ability to heal itself.
If the joint is misaligned for more than 14 days osteoarthritic changes or bone and disc degeneration begin to develop. Restoring the proper alignment and motion in the joint stops the degenerative process from progressing.
Only 7% of your nervous system transmits pain so by the time you feel pain your body is screaming for help. It is very important to address the problem and correct it and not to ignore or mask it.
Pain results in an overwhelmed body which cannot function properly and starts breaking down. Disease is the result of a long term miscommunication between the brain and body.
Remember that your body is your best doctor. It has the innate knowledge of how to heal itself that doctors can only learn from.
