To have a better understanding of where subluxations are in your spine helps one understand the potential health problems you can possibly suffer from.
There are four basic regions in your spine: the cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions. Each region is important to allow crucial nerve messages to be relayed from your brain through our spinal cord and then to important tissues, organs, or systems.
Different nerves in the cervical region (neck) are responsible for how our lungs work, different nerves in the thoracic region (mid back) are responsible for how our stomach and intestinal system functions, different nerves in the lumbar region (low back) are responsible for how our reproductive systems function, and different nerves in the sacral region (buttocks) are responsible for how our lower limbs function.
When we have these messages blocked off we have a high probability of having that part of the body fail. The unfortunate reality of having spinal nerve interference is that roughly 90% of everything in your body we are designed not to feel. That means 90% of all body dysfunction we are incapable of feeling or knowing it is occurring by using our senses.
This divides people into two different health categories in this world:
1) Those who only deal with health when they have symptoms. These people end up ignoring how the vast majority of their body functions. We now know that these people have a shorter life span and a lower quality of health while they are on this planet.
2) Those who realize that dealing with whole body function throughout a life time allows for a higher quality of life, a longer life span, and as a result a lot more enjoyment in life. When a person has their nervous system feeding all the tissues, organs, and systems of their body at its maximum level it becomes obvious how they feel, smile, are energized, are healthy, and participate in life at higher levels.
If you want to be in this second group have your nervous system checked now by calling a Chiropractor for an appointment.
