Nervous System Health and Chiropractic Assistance

Share

According to chiropractic physiological concepts, the body is in a state of relaxation when the body’s natural intelligence can properly function. With regular movement, work, school, chores, tasks, the body takes a beating getting pushed, pulled, and twisted. This results in loss of function, disharmony, chronic conditions, and disease. Chiropractic assistance restores the communication flow with various types of adjustments.

Like a vehicle that has something loose or is out of place, but can still move, so do individuals continue to work despite their body telling them that something is wrong or out of place. As they continue the body can start to break down. Even with a minor vertebral subluxation. A subluxation is when a vertebra/spine’s bones interfere with the transmission of information along the spine and throughout the central nervous system. The messages/transmissions to and from the brain disrupt the body’s ability to function properly resulting in health issues. A chiropractor adjusts the body to correct the subluxation. This facilitates the body’s natural ability to:

  • Adapt
  • Regulate
  • Heal itself through its own natural intelligence.

Chiropractic is based on principles of physiology. These principles have a significant impact on individuals:

  • Overall health
  • Vitality
  • Well-being

Self-healing and Regulating

When individuals cut themselves, or when a bone gets broken, the body will heal itself. No thought or practice is needed. The body breathes, digests food, the heart continues to beat and the kidneys filter out waste products.

Brain, Nervous System, and Body Health

The brain and nervous system are what controls and coordinate the body’s ability to heal and self-regulate. The brain sends out information through the nervous system to the organs of the body. The information tells the organs what to do and when to do it. The organs reply to the brain through the nervous system letting the brain know everything is operating correctly. To function properly and maintain optimal function, the body depends on the proper circulation of nerve transmissions/information traveling through the nervous system.

Spinal State

The condition or state of the spine if out of place even just a little could interfere with the transmission of information via the nerve pathways. Misalignments and subluxations don’t always hurt so individuals don’t know this is happening. The nervous system is protected by the skull and spinal bones, known as the vertebrae. The spinal bones allow for free movement. Subluxations and misalignments:

  • Stretch
  • Pinch
  • Irritate
  • Choke
  • Rub the nerve fibers.

This alters the information/messages traveling and interferes with the body’s ability to function as it should.

Chiropractic Assistance

Chiropractic assistance will diagnose and correct misalignments and subluxations, restoring proper nerve circulation. These spinal adjustments unlock and realign the bones allowing for optimal movement and the communication pathways are fixed. A healthy spine and nervous system are vital to healthy body function. This is the body’s natural state. How to know if you have a subluxation, have your spine checked by a chiropractor.

Body Composition Goals

For individuals that fall within the extremely overweight and obese body fat percentage category, an effective strategy is to lose fat while preserving the existing Lean Body Mass. Individuals with high body fat percentages often have existing muscle developed from carrying the added weight when moving. Preserving this muscle is important. Having more muscle means increased metabolism and more strength.

  • To start losing body fat it is recommended to cut down/cut out processed foods and reduce caloric intake.
  • Consult with a health coach and nutritionist to find out about different types of diets and types of physical activity.

One study showed that obese individuals could quickly improve body composition by:
