Your body is a self-healing, self-regulating organism controlled by your nervous system. In order to continuously heal and regulate itself, electrical impulses must constantly travel from your brain down your spinal cord to every tissue in your body. Signals sent back to the brain confirm whether the various cells and organs in your body are working correctly. Improper bone or tissue alignment, called a subluxation, can interfere with this informational exchange by compressing or irritating nerves. This undermines the body's feedback mechanism and compromises certain functions. Specific chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the stress on nervous system and improve the brain's regulation and control of the body.
