The Central Nervous System and Your Health

By Stepy Kamei

If you've learned even just a little bit about the nature of chiropractic care, you've probably heard of the term "spinal misalignment." Maybe you've heard this referred to as being a "vertebral subluxation." Still, do you know what exactly this means, let alone how it affects your health -- and perhaps more importantly, what you can do to treat it and prevent it from being a problem in the future? It can be very beneficial to your overall health and well-being to learn more about the nature of chiropractic care and the health of the spinal column. When you walk into the nearest The Joint Chiropractic clinic to you, you'll be better equipped with an understanding of exactly why our chiropractic treatments can be so beneficial to your health.

The Spinal Column's Role in Health and Wellness

If you're going to understand what makes the health of the spinal column so important in terms of maintaining the rest of your body's sense of well-being, you're going to need to know at least a little bit more about what the functions of the spinal column are. In a nutshell, the spinal column serves the body in two distinct ways. The spine houses and protects the central nervous system (which facilitates communication between the body and the brain), and it works to keep the body balanced, upright, and mobile. Given these pretty important responsibilities, it makes sense that if even one part of the spine is literally out of place, the rest of the body will be affected as well.

Misalignments can severely dirsupt the communication signals which are taking place within the central nervous system. As a result, other functions of the body may degrade and have more trouble working. This is why scientists and health experts have found a direct correlation between people with subluxations and an increase in the likelihood of suffering from issues such as high blood pressure, back pain, migraine headaches, insomnia, and even certain mental health disorders. 

Making the choice to come in to see a chiropractor on a regular basis means making the choice to take care of the health of your central nervous system, and therefore, of your entire body. Come on in to The Joint Chiropractic clinics to get started. You don't need to make an appointment, and many of our more than 340 locations nationwide are open during flexible weekend and evening hours for your convenience.
