The human body is an amazing machine, capable of performing all these functions without you having to think about it once. Your body is capable of effectively performing all of these functions as long as your nerve system is free from interference.
Your nervous system is housed within your spinal column. When a bone (vertebrae) within your spinal column becomes misaligned, a condition known as a “vertebral subluxation” takes place. This can occur due to poor posture over a period of time; an injury at work, in an auto accident, or a sports injury, as well as the wear and tear of everyday stress on our lives.
A vertebral subluxation causes interference to the nerve system, thus diminishing your body’s capability of performing these innate functions. Chiropractors are the only professionals trained to remove vertebral subluxations, thus allowing the body to function at 100%. A chiropractor is trained to analyze, detect, and correct these subluxations via chiropractic “adjustments” to the spine.
