The nervous system can be described as the "master" system of the body. All other bodily functions and organ systems are directly or indirectly controlled by this "master" system. If the spine and rest of the body move better, the nervous system is allowed to function likewise. This results in the immune system and other organ systems of the body working properly. So, via the function of the autonomic nervous system, this can translate into better overall health.
With correct chiropractic care, it is a common occurence for symptoms related to organ function to show improvement and even complete resolve. Examples of conditions commonly helped by chiropractic include high blood pressure, gastric reflux, asthma, decreased immune system, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcers, anxiety, bed wetting, cardiac arrythmias, menstrual cramps and many others. Thus, chiropractic care may improve overall health status, and even assist in the disease prevention process.
Improved Function of the Nervous System: Better Health!
When the body has instability, posture suffers. As the spine and other joints take on better movement, they assume a more ideal postion. When posture starts to improve, stresses that contribute to "wear and tear" and degeneration are lessened and even reversed. The effects of time, life stresses, and gravity take its toll. At O'Connor Chiropractic, we strive to correct these.
Just like in your car, when its individual parts are aligned and tuned properly, it drives its best. Your car is less likely to break down when it is taken care of. Similarily, with chiropracic care, the spinal and other body joints take on better movement. Through correction of improper movement patterns, "wear and tear" stresses lessened. This improved movement helps prevent the accelerated aging process of the spine and other joints.
Improved Movement Mechanics Greater Flexibility:
Chiropractic is effective in that it relieves inflammation and pressure at the source of aggravation. Dull, sharp, aching, throbbing, stabbing, and shooting are common pain descriptions. Numbness, tingling, decreased or increased sensation are also signs that nervous system pressure exists. Relief of pain and other symptomotology occurs when the body moves correctly. Pressure on joints, nerves, and soft tissues is alleviated.
