Why Does Chiropractic Help So Many Health Conditions?
When you begin to feel illness, pain or discomfort coming on, do you think, "Maybe I should go visit my Chiropractor?" You probably don't, but maybe you should...
It's surprising to know all of the many health conditions that Chiropractic care can help you with. Chiropractic is a type of healthcare that emphasizes the idea that the body has the power to heal itself in more instances than most people are aware of. It's focus is the relationship between the spine and the nervous system, and improving the function of the nervous system.
Why is the Nervous System so important?
Your nervous system plays an extremely big role in your body's proper functioning...it is the coordinator and regulator of all the processes and communications that must be in good working order for you to be in good health. It controls every organ, tissue, system and cell in your body. Just a few examples of processes it controls are:
- Produces sweat when it's hot
- Produces stomach acid after you've eaten
- Increases pulse after exertion
- Produces the feeling of pain
- Communicates with your body's immune system
- Balance and coordination
