The "NERVE" of Chiropractic
The premise behind manipulative care is that the everyday repetition of our lives- sitting, bending, lifting, sneezing, etc.- creates mechanical problems between the vertebrae and the disks, tendons, ligaments and everything else. That is why getting adjusted is so wonderful (in my humble opinion, as well as many others). The % of patients that improve with chiropractic is incredible- that is documented and is a reality.
But, one often disregarded part of chiropractic is that we have 31 pairs of spinal nerves. These nerves exit from the spinal cord in between the vertebrae and then meander to every part of our body. Therefore, their is an absolute correlation between getting adjusted and nerve health. I can't tell you how much nerve health happens from getting adjusted because its hard to quantify. Because of the proximity of these nerve fibers to the vertebrae, their has to be a severe relationship. That is also a big part of getting adjusted.
So get your gluteals in to the office and get adjusted. Your body needs it for multiple reasons.
Happy Passover & Easter...
Yours in good health,
