Did you know that your brain and spinal cord (called the central nervous system because they are in the center of your body) are the only organs in your body surrounded by solid bone? Your brain is surrounded by your skull and your spinal cord, (an extension of your brain that goes down your back) is surrounded by the bones of your spine. The column of bones going down your back is called the spinal column or vertebral column.
This simple fact tells a lot about the importance of the brain and spinal cord; they play a vital role in the health of the human body.
Many, many muscles, ligaments, tendons, discs, and meninges are connected to your spine. They attach from your spine to your head, arms, legs, shoulders, hips – just about all your body structure. That’s why you keep stable as you sit, stand, walk and move. Without them, you would be a pile of disconnected bones laying on the ground. Yeech!
The job of your chiropractor is to keep your head, spine, hips, discs, ligaments, muscles, tendons, and the rest in proper alignment. You should be straight from the front, and from the side, it should have natural curves. If you are not properly aligned, you’ll lose energy, and have possible nerve interference going to internal organs that cause dis-ease (body malfunction) and even mind/body problems.
This is our specialty – keeping you and your family in balance, alignment, and with peak energy. Thank you for being part of our practice.
