Your Nervous System – The Electrical System that Keeps you Moving

Your central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) is responsible for sending messages to every cell, tissue, organ and system in your body. This is made possible by your spinal network. This communication network is in charge of every function in your body and determines how well you function. You can think of your nervous sytem as your body’s own electrical system and the nerves as the many wires required to send and receive signals throughout the body.


The central nervous system is important and is protected from direct trauma by your spinal column and skull. Without adequate protection and maintaining spinal column movement, your nervous system can be compromised. Other forms of trauma can include nutritional imbalances, chemical or medication induced dysfunctions, and/or direct trauma, such as cuts, burns, or compression injuries. Trauma can result in temporary or permanent damage and the cause will help determine how quickly you respond to treatment. Nerve dysfunctions can be thought of as short circuits, poorly insulated, or even mis-firing wires in your body’s communication system. Without a properly insulated, conducting, or powered wiring system, your body fails to communicate to the necessary muscles, joints, or organs needed to keep you moving and functioning.

During your chiropractic evaluation, the impact of your injury on your spinal column, muscles, nerves, or joints will be assessed. Chemical, medication related or nutritional causes of your condition will considered and recommendations made to support your treatment.

By addressing your case in terms of spinal movement restrictions, joint, muscle and nerve dysfunctions, and/or nutritional considerations, a treatment plan is created to best achieve your goals.

Not only are in office treatments suggested, but also home care suggestions to support your progress. Home care may include corrective exercises, nutritional supplements, or changes in lifestyle habits.
