“Look well to the spine for the cause of disease.” Hippocrates
At its very foundation chiropractic helps improve nervous system function by making adjustments to the spine. The nervous system is a complex network of nerves, spinal cord, and brain that reach and affect every part of the body. When the spine is not aligned or the body is out of balance it can impact the function of the nervous system, causing chronic pain, difficulty in mobility, and a wide range of health conditions.
Go to the far right column titled POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS to find your complaint. Trace your symptom to the middle column to AREAS & PARTS of BODY to see a correlation between your compaint, the body part and vertebral column. All symptoms are signs that the body is under stress or not functioning at 100% and you may feel that in a symptom. Only about 10% of our nervous system is set aside, in your spinal cord, for the perception of pain. The good thing about that is, if that were not the case, we would be feeling pain a lot more often than we do.
However, your nervous system has a lot of jobs. There is a difference between how you are feeling vs healing!
If you are finding yourself checking off too many boxes on the POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS column your body is talking to you and its time to listen to the signs...
