Chiropractic Care and Your Nervous System

Chiropractic care was developed in the 1800s based on the remarkable outcomes that spinal adjustments had on the body as a whole, and especially on the positive impact it could have on the functioning of the nervous system. The nervous system coordinates actions through the transmission of signals throughout the body. It serves as an inner communication tool, as it provides information to the brain and guides the body to react accordingly and appropriately.

Everything that we do is determined by what is happening in the nervous system. It is accountable for the way in which we experience senses, taste, smell, touch, sound and sight; our movements and the functioning of our organs is also regulated by our nervous system, as it is the control center of the body.

When chiropractic adjustments are performed, they are affecting the nervous system. For example, by removing subluxations, which cause interferences in the nervous system, chiropractors are altering how the brain communicates with the other parts of the body. Spinal subluxations are slight misalignments inside the spine that might compress spinal nerves, which could lead to a variety of illnesses.

Daniel David Palmer, also known as the father of chiropractic, believed that internal illness such as liver disease, developed due to a subluxation compressing the spinal nerve that leads to the liver. Therefore, he believed this could be cured through manipulation, by handwork that would ultimately relieve and fix any misalignments. While they're not curing any diseases through chiropractic adjustments, over time, research studies have found that chiropractic adjustments can create a positive effect on the overall body and nervous system, which might also lead to correcting nervous system dysfunction. 

The central nervous system (Brain and spinal cord), communicates with the rest of the body parts via the nerves. The nerves run everywhere there is a vein or an artery in the body, and it is so important, that it is protected by bone, the skull and spine in particular. With this in mind, when you're thinking of Chiropractic care, such as adjustments and how they affect/work with the spine (which is what most people think) we're actually providing benefits to your body’s nervous system.

Chiropractic care can positively impact your nervous system, spine, brain and organ functioning, and can provide overall health and well-being benefits.
