The nervous system flows through and out of the spinal column through small openings called facets. Our nerves are the information highway that makes everything work, they communicate messages from the brain, both conscious (lift my leg, pick up that book) and unconscious (breathe, heart, keep beating). Obviously, we want those messages to come through in the most efficient way possible. When the spine is misaligned it changes the shapes of those facets, making smaller pathways for the nerves to pass through, this creates static, impedes the communications and can escalate to pain and in some cases a loss of function.
Regular chiropractic adjustments, can help avoid nerve impingement. When incorporated into a healthy lifestyle it can be key to creating a system that functions at its optimum level.
Whether you’re looking for relief from pain (like approx. 22 million other americans) or just seeking to support your general wellness, Cornerstone Chiropractic is here for you.
