We believe chiropractic is a cornerstone of health and it is our passion to help you get well and stay well.
The brain is the master of the nervous system. The brainstem exits through a small opening at the base of the skull through the first two vertebrae (C1 and C2). There are an estimated 450 million nerve cells that crisscross at this small area! This is the main terminal for information traveling to the rest of the body. The brainstem continues down the spine as the spinal cord before extending to every organ, tissue, and cell in the body.
Signals from the brain travel up and down the spine along this bundle of nerves at over 250 mph. Your nervous system controls and coordinates everything in your body and mind. Even the slightest misalignment (subluxation) of a vertebra can cause disruption in a nerve signal. When subluxations (nerve interference or damage) interrupt the nerve flow—similar to poor connection on your cell phone—you are no longer functioning at 100%. Weakened nerve signals impact the ability to communicate between the brain and body.
As the founder of chiropractic, B.J. Palmer, stated, “The power that made the body, heals the body.”
