Why is your spine so important?

Why is your spine so important?

As a Chiropractor our focus is on the intimate relationship between the central nervous system and the spine, understanding that the biomechanical and structural derangement of the spine can affect the integrity and function of the nervous system.  And that for any body, no matter the shape, size, age or level of function, Chiropractic can find, restore, and improve the structural integrity of the spine, reduce pressure on the sensitive neurological tissue, and consequently improve the health of the individual.

Your spine is a protective structure that surrounds your central nervous system, but it is way more than just that. If your spine was built purely for protection, you wouldn’t have all the movable parts that we call vertebrae, instead you would have a strong immovable structure.

As we all know spinal movement is vitally important for your body and the most movable part of the spine is the upper neck. But with this comes a compromise. With more movement comes less stability and with less stability comes the ability for your spine to misalign.

Misalignment of the upper-cervical spine can cause interference with communication at the level of the brainstem. When we see this, as Chiropractors we refer to it as a vertebral subluxation.

Correcting vertebral subluxations allows the central nervous system to work at its full capacity, maintaining the body in balance and allowing body systems, which may have previously been compromised, to work at their optimum. Improving the quality of life, overall health and wellbeing for the individual concerned.

If you have any questions about vertebral subluxation or what Chiropractic care is all about then please give us a call on 01202 618262.  We are always happy to answer your questions.
