At Neu Life, chiropractic care is administered to correct nerve interference caused by misalignments in the spine. This nerve interference, also known as a subluxation, alters the messages sent from the brain to every cell of the body. This can create dis-ease in the body or a state of unwellness, which can result in sickness and disease. You may have subluxations present that can slowly undermine your health.
The Spine Column
The spinal column consists of 24 bones called vertebrae. These vertebrae house your nervous system, which controls and integrates all body activities. This nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and the nerves which exit the spine. It is the body's master control center with the brain operating like a computer. The brain is one of the body's largest organs weighing in at approximately 3 pounds in the average adult. It is through this nervous system that vital messages are sent between your brain and every cell, organ, gland, and muscle in your body. When a subluxation or a misalignment in the vertebrae occurs, these messages are altered and your body cannot respond the way it was intended.
How do I get a misaligned vertebrae or subluxation?
These misaligned vertebrae can occur for many reasons. Sometimes at birth subluxations can be introduced at the beginning of life or shortly after while learning to walk or skate. Adults can become subluxated due to stress, alcohol or drug abuse, poor posture, auto, work or sports related injuries and even nutrition in the form of poor eating habits. Sometimes consistently carrying heavy objects such as briefcases or handbags can result in misaligned vertebrae. So as you can see almost anyone can have subluxations present, which can slowly undermine your health. Anyone who has a subluxation should have it corrected in order to realize their optimum health potential.
