The primary role of the nervous system is to relay information in the form of energy to the brain. Then, the brain sends information back to the body through the nervous system to adapt the body to its environment. It is a feedback loop that is happening in your body right now in response to temperature, visual stimuli, sounds, smells, what you have eaten recently, body positions and many other environmental stimuli. How successfully your nervous system controls this process will determine your level of health.
Your brain is protected by the skull, and your spinal cord by the 24 moving bones of the spine called vertebrae. Many everyday activities can cause these bones to lose their normal position or motion. This can result in interference to the nervous system and effect how the body is communicating with itself. Ultimately, this will result in ill health. Chiropractic is a healing art, science and philosophy that deals with the removal of interference to the nervous system.
Interference to the nervous system can be caused by structural problems such as arthritis or poor posture; chemical interference such as improper diet or toxic overload from drugs, sugar, cigarettes, alcohol; or mental interference from stress, depression, lack of love and many other destructive mental states. Chiropractic is not so much concerned with the treatment of disease, although we often help many conditions where other treatments have failed. Chiropractic is about maximizing your health potential by removing interference to the greatest healer that has ever existed, the healer inside you.
