How Chiropractic Care Helps The Nervous System

The nervous system is the most complex system in your entire body. The nervous system is a very complex network of processes that coordinates how actions and sensory sensory information is transmitted to different parts of the body. The nervous system controls all cells and organs. 

How does the nervous system work?

The nervous system regulates everything, from breathing, digestion, movement, immunity, and more. The nervous system’s effectiveness is directly related to human health and performance.

The brain and the spinal cord are formed within one month of conception, according to embryological science. To receive specific signals to develop and grow, all other organs are connected directly to the neural tube. For protection, the brain and spinal cord are eventually encased within bone. The skull protects the brain, while the spinal vertebrae protect and surround the nerve roots and spinal cord. 

The brain and spinal cord are the only organs that are protected by hard bones. This is a sign of the natural importance and sensitive nature of the nervous system.

Because of the close relationship between the spine and the brain, chiropractic plays an important role in how the nervous system functions. 

Science has shown that the movement and alignment in the spine can have a significant impact on the function of the brain, central nervous system, and spine. 

How does chiropractic care help the nervous system?

Chiropractic examines the movement and alignment to ensure healthy relationships between the spine and the central nervous system. An immobile or misaligned vertebrae can negatively affect the function of the nervous system. 

Our chiropractors focus on restoring proper alignment and movement to the spine. This creates a cascade effect that allows unwanted pain, symptoms, or conditions to be relieved and healed over time. Chiropractic care is a natural way to heal and improve your health.

The human body has an amazing ability to heal itself. Regular Chiropractic care shows a shift in stress-focused functions to a less stressed nervous system. This results in a nervous system that is more focused on growth, development and restoration.

Millions of Chiropractic patients around the globe have seen the incredible benefits of spinal care. Because of the flexibility of the nervous system, and the spine’s natural ability to receive corrective care, chiropractic adjustments can improve many aspects of health and healing.

How does stress impact the nervous system?

It’s hard to believe but too much stress can be just as bad for your health as getting a virus or bacteria. 

There’s a reason we say “stress kills” – it can lead to serious health conditions including high blood pressure, heart disease and even cancer.

When the body is under a lot of stress, it releases hormones that can make us feel tired, anxious and irritable. It also makes our immune system less effective at fighting off infections. 

What’s more, it makes cells more likely to break down and die, which can lead to organ damage. And over time, stress may cause changes in our genes that make us more likely to get certain diseases in the future. There are many ways to reduce stress and improve your health, including exercise, meditation and proper nutrition.
