Learn What Role Function Plays In Good Health

The nervous system is he master control for all of the body’s functions. When all of the organs are functioning properly, health is possible.  A loss of health takes place when there is a loss of function. When the stomach is not functioning properly one can suffer from indigestion, ulcers and even cancer. When a bone is broken it has lost its ability for normal function.

Health may only be regained when the part of the body that is not functioning properly has been restored to its previous state of normalcy. According to Gray’s Anatomy, the nervous system is the controlling entity in all of the body’s functions. 

As in any illness or injury, symptoms may not develop for days and in some instances years, even when function has been partially lost already. For example, if the heart lost 25% of its function it may take years before high blood pressure and symptomatic pain occurs. This is the reason that most heart attacks are the first symptoms experienced by heart disease sufferers.

Illness falls into three categories: Traumatic, Receptiveness, and Functional.

Trauma may be physical or chemical in nature, ranging from cuts to actual ingestion of chemicals. These forms of trauma alters normal function, and at times stops normal function completely. A person who experiences this kind of function impairment usually finds themselves  in the emergency room for needed treatment.

Another manner in which the body develops illness is through receptiveness to infection. To be infected, the person must first be receptive and susceptible to the infection. If a person’s body is not functioning properly, resistance is reduced and sickness is likely to take place. If having proper function can keep sickness from taking hold, then restoring proper function when one is sick would assist in strengthening the body so that it can dispose of the sickness or infection.

The functional category of illness is the most prevalent one of all. This is the loss of function of an organ or tissue due to that organ or tissue’s loss of function.  This type of illness would include asthma, colitis, ulcers diabetes and psoriasis. These are conditions that are termed incurable, but may respond to treatment oriented to restore normal function.

Misaligned vertebrae that interfere with the nervous system and cause nerve stress are called vertebral subluxations. This interference interrupts the information and energy flow to the various parts of the body and lowers our natural resistance to sickness and disease. Chiropractors are trained to locate and correct vertebral subluxation through examination and spinal adjustment. The adjustments relieve the nerve stress and assist in restoration of body function. Proper functioning of the nervous system through chiropractic treatment is one of the best defenses against sickness and disease. 

Chiropractic is not a treatment for the disease and illness, however it does assist in raising resistance against the illness and disease. Spinal nerve stresses damage the nervous system and can lead to disease of all kinds. Chiropractors locate and free the body from spinal nerve stress. Studies have shown that there is a relationship between a healthy nervous system and a healthy body.


Our chiropractic office educates our patients in lifestyle changes that compliment their spinal care. Chiropractic spinal adjustments strengthen areas of the spine and restore impaired nerve flow. Subluxations occur when vertebra misalign irritating delicate spinal nerves. Spinal adjustments remove the nerve pressure and restore function to the body. Chiropractic spinal adjustments by our chiropractors help you live your life to its fullest through a properly functioning nervous system. When your nervous system is functioning properly you express life to your fullest. Chiropractic spinal adjustments enable you to express your God given health potential and to live your life to fullest capabilities. Neck pain, back pain, sciatica, reduced immunity, ear infections, decreased energy, stomach disorders, asthma, allergies, sinus problems, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, shoulder problems, sports injuries, spinal disc degeneration, osteoarthritis, numbness, pain, are just some of the signs of improper function in the body and conditions that benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments.
