Your nervous system interacts closely with your musculoskeletal system. Your ability to stand, move, bend, and twist comes from this complex network made up of nerves, muscles, ligaments, and bones. Your bones and ligaments provide structural support. Your muscles control you movement, while your nerves carry electrical impulses to your muscles.
Proper alignment of your spine's 24 vertebra is essential for total health. Unfortunately, daily wear and tear, such as poor posture, improper lifting, old injuries that didn't heal properly, or lack of body conditioning can cause misalignment's of your spine.
A spinal misalignment is called a "subluxation." Subluxations cause electrical impulses traveling along your nervous system to be slowed, lost, or confused. Muscle spasms, prolonged periods of pain, delayed recovery from injury, as well as increased chance of permanent damage and degeneration can result.
