How Chiropractic Positively Affects The Nervous System
At its very foundation chiropractic helps improve nervous system function by making adjustments to the spine. Over time, more and more studies are proving that it is extremely effective and as a result many health conditions are improved and even healed completely.
Function of the Nervous System
The nervous system is a complex network of nerves, spinal cord, and brain that reach and affect every part of the body. The core of the nervous system is the spinal cord which receives and transmits information in the body.
It is responsible for organ function, movement, and experiencing the senses sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. The brain receives the information that is carried by the nervous system. It processes the information and helps the body react appropriately.
When you look at a cat, the image is transmitted through the nervous system, processed in the brain, and translated to the image of a cat as you understand it. It happens so quickly; there is no pause or lapse of time in a healthy nervous system. The transmission of the message is instantaneous.
How Chiropractic Helps Improve the Nervous System
When the spine is not aligned or the body is out of balance it can impact the function of the nervous system, causing chronic pain, difficulty in mobility, and a wide range of health conditions. Chiropractic adjustments open the pathways of the nervous system allowing the information to flow unobstructed.
It goes far beyond just the spine though. The chiropractor may adjust the arms, legs, neck, and hips in addition to the spine which all work together to provide a healthy, functioning nervous system. Regular chiropractic care can help keep the nervous system unimpeded and working as it should.
Improved Nervous System Means Improved Immune and Endocrine Systems
The nervous system, immune system, and endocrine system are inextricably linked so when one is impacted, the others are impacted as well. This occurs because all three systems share certain molecules that carry message between them, allowing them to communicate or work together. It is this connection that makes chiropractic an effective treatment for immunity.
While the immune system protects the body from disease, the endocrine system is responsible for producing certain hormones. These hormones are responsible for regulating tissue function, sleep, metabolism, sexual function, mood, growth and development, as well as other vital functions.
This is why chiropractic care can often help with depression and insomnia; it is even an effective with infertility. When you look at the nervous system from this perspective it is easy to see how far reaching it is and how much it impacts the entire body.
Benefits of an Improved Nervous System
There are many chronic and even degenerative health conditions that are impacted by the nervous system. Studies have shown that chiropractic is a very effective for numerous neurological conditions.
This makes chiropractic more global care in many cases. A patient may seek treatment for pain or limited mobility but will often experience many other benefits due to the positive effects that the chiropractic has on the nervous system.
When there is a communication breakdown between the brain and the body's tissues, organs, and cells it can lead to a variety of health problems. Chiropractic provides a safe, effective treatment for improved nervous system function.
In some cases, a patient may need regular chiropractic adjustments that may be once a week or several times a week. The type, frequency, and intensity of the adjustments is dependent upon the patient and their condition. Chiropractic adjustments positively affects the nervous system and as a result, positively affects the entire body.
