The chiropractic spinal adjustment is one of the most important treatments you can do for your body over your lifetime. The nerves that start in the brain go down the spinal cord which is encased and protected by the vertebral bones. Nerves exit the spinal cord and come out through small spaces in the sides of the vertebrae. When the vertebrae are not properly aligned, these nerves are pinched and irritated to the degree that the signals from the brain cannot completely flow along the nerve.
The spinal adjustment aligns the spinal segments (vertebrae) and frees the flow of electricity along the nerves. The nervous system is everywhere in your body. Our nerves direct us in every thing we do, feel, and think. When our nervous system is irritated by vertebrae that are not properly aligned, the energy from our brain cannot completely get to various parts of the body.
