Nervous System

The average adult human brain contains 86 BILLION NEURONS; almost as many stars as there are in the Milky Way galaxy!


What is the nervous system?

The nervous system is the master coordinating system of the body. Every action, thought and feeling needs to be processed by your nervous system; therefore making it the most important system in your entire body! The nervous system enables the body to continually react to changes in its internal and external environments, constantly controlling and integrating all the various activities of the body. Your nervous system is always hard at work regulating your body for optimal expression of human health.


How does chiropractic relate to my nervous system?

  • Chiropractic care is integral to a healthy nervous system, due to the influence of the spine on the health of this master communicating system.
  • Since your nervous system passes directly through your spine, dysfunctions of the vertebrae in your spine (subluxations) will lead to nerve irritation, sometimes resulting in obvious nerve pain and symptoms, but often times placing silent stress on your nerves, affecting the proper communication between your brain and the rest of your body

How can chiropractic help improve my nervous system function?

  • Your chiropractor is the only health professional specially trained to examine you for the presenceof vertebral subluxations and correction of vertebral subluxations.
  • If detected, your chiropractor will use safe and effective chiropractic adjustments to restore proper spinal movement, correct your subluxations and remove nervous system interference

If you lined up all the nerve cells in your body side by side, the total length would MEASURE OVER 500 MILES!
