What is the main communication center that you have?
Well, when it comes to your body, there is only one definitive answer. Read the following exerpt from www.pennhealth.com;
As the most complex system, the nervous system serves as the body control center and communications electrical-chemical wiring network. As a key homeostatic regulatory and coordinating system, it detects, interprets, and responds to changes in internal and external conditions. The nervous system integrates countless bits of information and generates appropriate reactions by sending electrochemical impulses through nerves to effector organs such as muscles and glands. The brain and spinal cord are the central nervous system (CNS); the connecting nerve processes to effectors and receptors serve as the peripheral nervous system (PNS). Special sense receptors provide for taste, smell, sight, hearing, and balance. Nerves carry all messages exchanged between the CNS and the rest of the body.
So that gets a little complex but you can see the point it’s getting at. The nervous system is the master controller of the entire body. Everything that happens inside of you as well as the way in which we perceive our environment is dictated by the function of our nervous systems.
That being said, do you think it would be a great idea to make sure that your nervous system is working at its optimum potential?
A lot of people call us back doctors. "Oh my back hurts, I better go to the chiropractor", or if you had a cough "but my back doesn't hurt, why would I go?". If the nervous system was in the thumb...I'd adjust thumbs. But its delicate tissues are protected by the spine...and that is why I adjust the spine. Plain and simple.
I have now completed my graduation requirements at Palmer College of Chiropractic, the fountainhead of Chiropractic. I am participating in an internship and seeing patients at Hassel Family Chiropractic in Clive until I graduate in February. Give us a call at 515-224-1111 and lets get that nervous system functioning at optimal.
