Chiropractic + The Neurospinal System
Chiropractic is a science, art, and philosophy that studies the relationship between the nervous system and the health of the body. Many people consider chiropractors to be “back doctors” or “bone doctors,” but that is only partially true. Yes, we do work with the spine, but only as an avenue to reach the nervous system.
The nervous system is comprised of the brain, spinal cord, and over 45 miles of nerves that communicate to every single cell, organ, and tissue in the body. These vital structures are protected by the spinal column and can be negatively affected due to physical, chemical, and emotional stressors.
Think of the nervous system like the electrical system in your home. In order for your lights, furnace, and appliances to function correctly, your electrical system must be working normally. The same is true of your nervous system. Neurospinal Optimization focuses on the normal functioning of your spinal cord and nerves and their connection to the bony structures of your spine to ensure an optimum expression of health. It is obvious that a malfunctioning electrical system will lead to secondary effects such as light bulbs burning out and the need to replace appliances too soon. Likewise, a poorly functioning spine and nervous system can lead to a variety of possible secondary conditions or symptoms.
Chiropractors adjust the spine to allow the nervous system to be free from any interference to better adapt to its environment and function at the most optimal level. Rather than masking symptoms, a chiropractor's goal is to address the ROOT cause, which lies within the nervous system.
Once interference is removed, our amazing and intelligent bodies are able to express health rather than sickness. As a result, we are able to reach our full health potential — physically, mentally, and spiritually!
