A healthy spine is the foundation of a healthy life.
The human spine contains 24 movable inter-connected bones, known as vertebrae, and stretches from the skull to the pelvis. The space in between most vertebrae is cushioned by disks which serve to allow fluid motion of the spine and to protect against injury. Housed within the spinal column is the spinal cord, which is a long, thin, tubular bundle of nerves that send electrical communication signals throughout the body. The spinal cord contains branches that reach out from the space between each vertebra to communicate with the various organs in the body. Any pinching on or damage to these delicate nerves can not only cause pain, but can also significantly impair proper communication within the body thus leading to various health problems.
Proper spinal alignment not only frees the body of pain, but it also allows open and clear two-way communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Pinching of these delicate nerves is like having a kink in a water hose. Until the kink is removed, water will not flow efficiently to deliver the water to the garden. Chiropractic adjustments help to properly align the spine, thus allowing a free-flow of information throughout the body creating optimal health and healing.
