The nervous system is made up of a series of nerves and specialized cells. It consists of the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system.
The central nervous system consists of the:
- Spinal Cord
The peripheral nervous system consists of the ganglia and sensory neurons.
The Function Of The Nervous System
The nervous system has both voluntary and involuntary functions. The involuntary components are those that are automatic, such as the management of the heart. Other components of the nervous system are involuntary, such as the use of the brain to manipulate one’s fingers.
Why Chiropractic Treatments Are Necessary
Chiropractic treatments are an essential part of recovering from nervous system problems. Your nervous system is the master control system of your body. However, when there are problems with the nervous system, this is often the result of problems with the vertebrae. When your nervous system is not functioning without interference, it is not healthy. The spinal cord allows for the monitoring and coordination of every cell in your body, but this is not possible if the spinal cord is not functioning properly.
The Effects Of An Unhealthy Spine
When the spine is unhealthy, it will create stress for the nervous system. The stress can interfere with the flow of information. While the negative health effects of having an unhealthy spine might seem alarming, this problem can, fortunately, be improved by getting checked by a chiropractor. Your posture can have an effect on the health of the nervous system, but a consultation with a chiropractor and chiropractic adjustments can resolve these issues.
How A Chiropractic Adjustment Works
A chiropractor will use his hands or instruments to apply pressure to a portion of the spine. This corrects the structural alignment of the spine, which can improve its physical function. If you would like to receive a chiropractic adjustment, contact Dr. Shane Silver to schedule an appointment.
