Your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue and organ in your body and maintains proper communication between the brain and the body. In addition to controlling and coordinating appropriate responses necessary for adaptation,
it also monitors your ever-changing needs.
By using either hands or instruments, our treatments are gentle enough for newborns to grandparents. We offer specific treatments to make corrections to the nervous system using a protocol which helps us determine the right treatment at the right time in the right place. When you take the time to determine what’s primary, the resulting care is that much more powerful to bring about change.
Nervous System Influence on your Emotional Health
The brain and spinal cord are part of the mind-body system governing all aspects of your life. There is a highly specialized system of communication from the brain to the body and from the body to the brain. We now know that the mind and body can be seen and treated as a whole, and that emotions can be accessed through the body as well as the mind. Just as anxiety created in the brain can cause true gastric distress, “butterflies in the stomach”, tension on nervous tissue passing through a misaligned joint can cause emotional tension in the brain as well.
Nervous System Influence on the Digestive System
Although all body function is controlled by the nervous system (the brain), there is a particularly intimate relationship with the digestive tract. The digestive tract is deeply embedded with a very specialized nerve system. It is, in some respects, an independent “second brain” in direct communication and influence of the brain via the vagus nerve. This shows the importance of a properly functioning spine and nerve flow when the body is battling digestive disorders and attempting gut re-balancing. This is also why what you eat is critically important because it affects how your brain functions. Nutritional consulting is an essential component to Chiropractic care.
Nervous System Influence on the Immune & Endocrine Systems
The nervous and immune systems are clearly in communication with each other. It has been shown that the immune system does not work autonomously and can be conditioned; it is under direct influence of the brain and receives instruction via the nerve network. Furthermore, the nerve, immune and endocrine (hormone) systems are functionally integrated into what looks like a psychoimmunoendocrine network.
