"The Doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." --Thomas A. Edison
Chiropractic is a complementary and preventative medicine. Without proper communication from the brain through the spine to every part of the body, certain conditions can begin to arise.
The nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord, and the nerves that exit from the spinal column. These nerves not only control how your muscles move, but also how your organs function and how you express yourself. (See diagram below)
The slightest pressure upon these nerves inhibits them from working 100%. If they are not working at 100%, your body is not in optimal shape to continually regenerate and restore vital functions.
Muscular and structural balancing are vital keys to maintaining vitality, strength and youthfulness. So please consider stretching each day, practicing yoga and other forms of internal movement as well as external exercise. You can also consider seeing a good chiropractor.
