Restoring and maintaining proper function of the nervous system through spinal correction.

Thinking of this significant and intricate system intertwined within our body as a power supply of life we are able to visibly see the significance of keeping our spinal cord and nerves in optimal shape. The second essential to Maximized Living is concerned with maximizing nerve supply so as to maximize the power supply of life within your body!

The brain is effectively the first organ to develop while in the mother’s womb. Our brain is the main command center for the rest of our body, and uses our spinal cord and nerves from the beginning to create every cell and organ. From development onto death, this command center is in charge of the flow of “power” along the spine and through the nervous system, controlling all function and healing within the body. Therefore, attaining overall health and wellness is directly associated to maximizing your nerve supply.

The intricacy of the nervous system is so powerful and subtle that it is able to control millions of cells inside dozens of operating systems all at once. Right now you are currently breathing, your heart is beating and your eyes are blinking, all while sustaining feeling and keeping pace within your limbs. All of these individual operations are done without effort and sometimes unknowingly due to your nervous systems ability to manage and regulate your body’s function. While your body may be able to go days without water, weeks without food, and even minutes without oxygen, it cannot keep going one second without the power created by your nervous system!

The nervous system is so essential to your body that it is covered within a well-built, bony structure to keep damaging elements away from the sensitive nerves. This bony structure consists of the skull, which guards the upper brain, and the spinal column, which shelters the spinal cord and nerve roots. When this column is not well taken care of, it may shift or rotate out of place, interfering with your body’s ability to create maximum nerve supply! The condition of your spine then influences both your physical and mental health–making it essential to optimal performance. Developments in modern science have allowed chiropractors the capability to make defined measurements of the spine, giving them the resources to make an precise measurement of both the damage done to your spine and nervous system, as well as the accurate recommendations for care.

There are many kinds of chiropractors and most provide substantial value. However, as with all doctors, there are those who take their training to extremely high levels and who have differning levels of skills and areas of focus. Training, coordination, technology and focus on spinal correction are all important factors when choosing someone to take care of your nervous system. While some chiropractors choose to limit their scope of practice to treating pains or symptoms, others focus on overall health and longevity, starting with correcting and maintaining your spine to allow for maximized nerve supply.

Unlike many medical procedures, chiropractic adjustments are incredibly safe. In a study reported in Spine Journal in October 2007 of more than 19,700 patients who underwent more than fifty thousand cervical spine adjustments, a team of researchers concluded that there was no risk of a serious adverse event from a spinal adjustment. This is why chiropractors pay a fraction of the cost for malpractice compared to medical doctors.
