The Vital Connection: Your Spinal Column & Nervous System

To be fully alive, you must be fully connected. When it comes to the human body, that connection is in the form of your nervous system and spinal column.

Did you know your spine has a connection to virtually every organ in your body? For example, the C1 vertebra brings sensation and blood supply to the head, face, brain, and inner and middle ear. Similarly, the L1 vertebra is responsible for the sensation to the uterus, bladder, knees, and large intestine.

So what happens when certain vertebra is out of place, or not working the correct way? Chiropractors and physicians have found a direct correlation between specific vertebra and negative health effects, for example:

When the C1 is subluxated, headaches, migraines, and insomnia are often reported by patients. Similarly, if the L5 is even slightly unaligned, a patient will experience swollen, weak ankles, leg pain, and back pain.

Chiropractors know how to identify and treat these issues, and can spot the correlation between knee pain, and an unaligned L3 vertebra.

Often, people believe there are other reasons for their pain, but chiropractors can help solve problems without invasive techniques and harsh medicines. Chiropractors are ideal for locating and correcting subluxations in the spinal column, meaning you can get your spine back on the right track and communicating with each part of your body in a better, healthier way.
