THE NERVE OF CHIROPRACTIC
The musculo-skeletal, mechanical and functional benefit of chiropractic or spinal manipulative therapy has been well documented for centuries. The benefit that human beings have received from this hands on approach has been consistent and evident for many years. The relationship between our joints and the soft tissue that helps the joints function is GOD given and chiropractic uses that innate wisdom our bodies have to help it work better to a optimal level.
The neurological component of chiropractic is really quite simple- we have 31 pairs of spinal nerves that exit off the spinal chord through little spaces that are created between the vertebrae in our spinal column. These spaces are called foramina- our spinal nerves exit through these and branch off to send nerve signals to every part of our body including our extremities, organs, skin, and everything else in between.
So, each time you receive an adjustment you are receiving benefit to the neuor-musculo-skeletal function of your body. That is the power of a chiropractic adjustment!
A person may not feel their nervous system improving from each adjustment, since what drives most people in to see me is some kind of symptom or pain.
But, TRUST ME- the transmission of your nervous system incredibly benefits each time I lay my hands on your bodies.
It truly is a blessing and I feel fortunate to be your chiropractor.
Yours in good health,
Dr. Ray and Staff
