This is my first article posting for my Chiropractic office Active Posture Chiropractic. Being a San Diego Chiropractor is an honor. I get to help my practice members live a better quality of life. We have helped our practice members with back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica, leg and arm pain, and even numbness and tingling of the hands and feet. The reason why Chiropractic care is so beneficial to the many symptoms above is because these symptoms are due to interference in the nervous system. As a San Diego Chiropractor I work with allowing your nervous system to function optimally.
The nervous system is your master controller of the entire body. The nervous system is made up by the brain, spinal cord, and spinal nerves. The brain communicates with the body by way of the spinal cord and spinal nerves. The messages are sent to all areas of the body. For example a message is sent from the brain to the muscles of your arm to shake someone’s hand. Then a message is sent back to your brain letting the brain know that the movement was done. All the organs of the body work the same way. A message is sent to your lungs to breath and then a return message is sent to your brain letting your brain know that action was completed. These messages are sent faster than the speed of light. These simple but required messages are happening constantly, without you having to think about it. Could you imagine if you had to tell your lungs to breath or your heart to beat? You would die within the first five minutes. Your body does this naturally without you having to think about it. This is all done by way of the nervous system. What do you think would happen if these messages were interfered with? How do you think your body would function? As a San Diego Chiropractor these interferences are what I am concerned with.
The nervous system is protected by bone called spinal vertebrae. The spinal vertebrae are moveable. Since these bones can move there is potential of the bones moving out of their specific alignment. When this occurs the nerve exiting the spine gets pinched or irritated. The nerves are very delicate and depending on the amount of pressure will determine the type of symptoms you will experience. The nerve is broken down into three categories muscle function, organ and system function, and pain or sensation. Muscle and organ function make up 90% of the nerve the remaining is pain or sensation function. If the nerve gets pinched unless more than 90% is being pinched pain will never be experienced. If the irritation on the nerve is less than 90% other symptoms will be experienced. Symptoms could be muscle tension or spasms, muscle weakness, or symptoms in the organs themselves. For example high or low blood pressure could develop, digestive problems, liver problems, reproductive issues, hormonal imbalances, or problems with your immune system. The longer the nerve is irritated the more symptoms will develop.
San Diego Chiropractors are the only doctors specifically trained to detect and correct misaligned spinal segments or Subluxations. A Subluxation is spinal bone out of its normal alignment causing nerve irritation. As a San Diego Chiropractor it is my job to make sure that my practice members are free of Subluxations. Subluxations are what cause the body to be unhealthy. The longer the Subluxation stays in your body the more unhealthy you will become. Being under regular San Diego Chiropractic care will allow you to be Subluxation free and allow you to live a healthier lifestyle.

The worse thing you can do is to wait until you have pain before ever getting your spine checked. It is much smarter to get your spine checked by a San Diego Chiropractor before pain occurs. Even smarter to get your entire family checked regularly.
