Chiropractic is based on the premise that every function in the human body is directed and coordinated by the nervous system.
Your nervous system is the master controlling system of the whole body – the information ‘super highway’. This super highway is more than the vertebral bones and discs of the spine. The spinal column is the protective casing for the nerves to safely and effectively transmit information from your brain to the rest of your body and back again. Just like any highway there are on and off ramps. These ramps allow smaller nerve bundles to transport ‘goods’ to other body systems (endocrine, reproductive, digestive…) in the form of sensory and motor information that will alter blood flow, metabolism, hormone levels, emotions and anything else involving the function of your body. Altered sensory input (via spinal distortions) can change how you perceive the world, where as altered motor output can alter how you move through the world. There is only one super highway for the nerves and that’s your spine, we want to keep it as clear and free flowing as possible.
