Chiropractic Fosters a Strong Spine-Brain Connection

upper back pain spineThe brain is a fantastic organ that serves as the center of the nervous system. Think about all its incredible abilities! The brain allows us to reason, make decisions, love and recall precious family moments. Every function in your body is controlled by the brain. Our brains manage everything, including digestion, immune response, cellular repair and detoxification, just to name a few of its functions.

How Communication Takes Place

To communicate with the rest of the body, the brain sends messages down the spinal cord. The central nervous system is made up of the brain and spinal cord. The messages that travel down the spinal cord exit between each of the 24 vertebrae of the spinal column. These messages then continue to every cell, tissue and organ of the body.

The Important Role Chiropractic Plays

Where the messages that are sent from the brain to the body are most vulnerable are when they exit between the vertebrae and the spine. Chiropractic assists in proper nervous system function by keeping these exits clear of interference and allowing the brain to communicate to the body through the spine.

How Chiropractic Addresses Functional Deficits

Sometimes functional deficits happen so slowly that you don’t even notice them. For example, maybe you realized you couldn’t turn your head over your shoulder because it’s been so slowly diminished that you think it’s your new normal.

It’s only when there’s a restoration of proper function that you recognize that you had such a deficit. You don’t know what’s normal until it’s reintroduced into the body. Chiropractic can help get you back to enjoying optimal function and health.
