  Question

How is your spinal column and nervous system related?

There are millions of nerve fibers that travel all over your body to various different tissues and organs.

Your brain sends messages to your body via the spinal cord and nerves. There are millions of nerve fibers that travel all over your body to various different tissues and organs. The nervous system is made up of your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Your skull and spinal column are the bones which protect the delicate tissue of the nervous system, so it is important that they, too, are protected. Occasionally, your spinal column becomes unbalanced. When this occurs it may put stress on your bones, spinal cord, and nerves causing pain, fatigue, weakness, of loss of health or wholeness (dis-ease). Chiropractic adjustments can ensure proper alignment and mobility of the spinal bones, thus helping to remove stress from your nervous system and help restore health and wholeness to your body.
