"The nervous system holds the key to the body's incredible potential to heal itself."
- Dr. Jay Holder
The nervous system is the supervening system of the body – it controls and coordinates every single cell, tissue, organ, and muscle in the entire body.
When this system is out of balance, disease processes and symptoms begin to develop. Chiropractic care focuses on the normal alignment of the spine, and its relationship to proper function of the central nervous system in order to address the root cause of your health concerns.
Due to the influence of the spine on the brain and nervous system, every time there is a problem in the alignment, movement, tone, or function of the spine, the nervous system is being affected. Chiropractic recognizes that the body is programmed for health, not sickness, and thus is self-healing and self-regulating as long as there is no interference to these inherent mechanisms to heal and adapt. Improper alignment of the spine may decrease our body’s ability to adapt to the various stresses in our lives. Stress does not cause disease, but the inability to properly adapt to the stresses of an individual’s environment does.
The chiropractic adjustment serves to normalize the function of the spine, positively affecting the nervous system, balancing its function and improving communication between the body and the brain, and therefore the brain and the body. Proper nervous system function has been shown to normalize the stress response, optimizing the body’s ability to adapt to its environment. Call today for a complimentary consultation.
