In today’s post, we’re addressing a question we often get from our customers: Do chiropractic adjustments improve body function?

Everything that takes place in the body is regulated by the information contained in the brain and the nerve system. The brain is the control center of all bodily functions.

Not only do our brains control our physical selves. But, they’re also centers for our senses, emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. As chemicals and signals from our brains travel across our nervous systems and out to our organs and tissues, they allow our bodies to function. 

Our nervous systems are always busy and eventually get worn down by daily stressors. Those daily stressors – poor posture, injuries, repetitive motions – can create vertebral subluxations that compromise the signals our nervous systems are trying to send out.

Chiropractic Adjustments

What is a Vertebral Subluxation?

Vertebral subluxations are misalignments of the spinal bones that prevent your nervous system from functioning at 100% of its potential. If your nervous system isn’t operating at its best, then neither is the rest of your body.

Subluxations can be so subtle that you don’t notice obvious symptoms or pain. But, they may still be negatively affecting your body’s ability to perform at its best. Often subluxations are present without pain or symptoms. Left uncorrected, subluxations reduce the function of the body. Consequently, it may manifest in an increased aptitude for disorders, illnesses, disability, and disease. Correcting vertebral subluxations with a specific spinal adjustment allows the body to function better. Free of subluxations, the brain and body function more harmoniously and adapt to stressors more successfully.

Can A Chiropractic Adjustment Improve Body Function?

A chiropractic adjustment is a procedure in which trained chiropractors use their hands or a small instrument to apply a controlled, sudden force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure is to improve spinal motion and improve your body’s physical function.

Any time your spine is adjusted; it improves the way your brain communicates with the body. And a brain that is functioning optimally has a positive effect on the entire body. In other words, chiropractic care does not only benefit neck and back pain sufferers and athletes. 

A primary reason that spinal adjustments maintain such a profound influence on human health and performance exists due to the relationship between the spine and central nervous system.

The Importance of Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic does not focus on treating particular diseases, conditions, or symptoms. 

Chiropractic adjustments serve a singular purpose. That is to optimize the function of the body and central nervous system communication through better spinal alignment and mobility. The delicacy of the spine suffers from the physical stressors of life. Interference occurs when the body loses the ability to keep vertebrae aligned and moving correctly.

Imbalance in the nervous system usually leads to symptoms. Both physical and hormonal which lead families to seek assistance through drugs and pills. Which, do not fix the source of the problem. A chiropractic adjustment improves the function of the entire body by releasing stress from the central nervous system.

Adjustments now serve as one of the most important health interventions which anyone can implement into their routine. Chiropractic serves as a pain-free, drug-free intervention. Therefore, it maximizes health and function by utilizing the healing power within the body.
