Chiropractic for the sake of your Brain

It begins with minor joint injury
Regular movement of the vertebral joints causes the sensory nerves that are embedded in the muscles and ligaments to send an encyclopedia of signals to the brain. The brain uses that information to stimulate many of its control areas for proper action. What happens when a vertebra is slightly out of line and not moving properly? Sometimes a misalignment will cause pain right away, but often neck and back pain are only the end result of a long, long process. The deeper problem is the change in the way that the brain functions when a vertebra is slightly "stuck". Sometimes, because pain seems to come out of nowhere, a lot of patients will think that their injury, "just happened overnight" or say, "I don't know what I did"! The fact is that their pain is just the "tip of the iceberg" and their problem has been coming on for much longer than they had realized. Back pain can come and go, but even a minor vertebral joint injury that doesn't cause pain will continue to cause silent damage to the discs, ligaments and nerves attached to the vertebrae. But it is the tiny unseen sensory nerves that actually alter transmission to your brain!
