The Importance of Keeping Your Nervous System Finely Tuned

person sitting next to model of  a spineAs the command center of your body, the nervous system is crucial. It’s the most heavily protected organ, as it’s encased inside our skull (cranium), and the spinal column protects the spinal cord. The nervous system controls all your body’s systems and affects every aspect of your health. When there’s interference or misalignments, however, your nervous system can’t function at its peak.

How Misalignments Impact the Body

As a chiropractor. Dr. Hoover looks at misalignments of the spine that may cause interference with the nervous system. When misalignments are present, they can cause many types of symptoms. “If the nerve flow isn’t going properly off the spinal cord out to whatever body part it’s going to, it’s not going to work optimally,” said Dr. Hoover.

Anything that interferes adversely with the function of that nervous system may not necessarily manifest as pain. Instead, you may just have weakness in the muscle.

Misalignments also affect the immune system. Someone under a lot of stress may be more likely to get sick because their immune system is suppressed. After all, the nervous system also controls the immune system. So if you have anything interfering with your nervous system, your immune system won’t perform maximally.

Benefits of Getting Adjusted

The good news is chiropractic care can benefit the body in many ways:

  • Boosts the immune system naturally
  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces reliance on pain medication
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Improves sleep
  • Helps your organs function better
  • Improves posture

The Value of Maintenance Care

Just as you regularly go to the gym to stay in shape or go to the dentist to keep your smile healthy, it’s a great idea to get regular chiropractic care. Doing so is a crucial piece of the wellness puzzle, along with a healthy diet, regular exercise, and sleep.
