Edmonton Chiropractor: Benefits of Chiropractic

IMG_00101.jpgYour nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) controls and coordinates every mental and physical function in your body and allows your body to heal properly.  There is constant communication and exchange of information in the form of nerve impulses between your brain and body via the nerves and spinal cord.  Your spine and nervous system are closely connected.  Not only does your spine protect the spinal cord, but the health of your brain relies on proper alignment and movement of your spine to receive and send those nerve impulses.  When your spine loses its normal alignment and mobility, there will be interference in those nerve impulses (subluxation - nerve interference and spinal misalignment) and that vital communication between your brain and body gets disrupted.  As a result, your health declines.

Chiropractic focusses on correcting your subluxations (realigning your spine) with specific chiropractic adjustments, reestablishing the vital nerve communication between your brain and body.  Your entire body and mind benefits!
