Regular Adjustments

Why are REGULAR adjustments (at this office) so important to your health?

I had a patient come up to me the other day and she asked me, “So Doc, why are these adjustments so important. I know I had pain when I came in, but now I don’t. So why do I need to continue with my adjustments?”

I told her, “That’s a normal reaction. People judge their health by the way they feel, and that’s okay up to a certain point, but when you have nerve interference, you don’t necessarily have to have pain. We suggest you follow the recommended program that was tailored for your health issue, then continue getting check ups at least once a month. Here’s why.”

According to Neurogenetics at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center, the human body has 95 to 100 billion neurons or nerve cells. That’s a whole lot of nerve cells.

The brain alone has at least 85 billion of these nerve cells, although estimates go as high as 1 trillion.

While humans have about 100 billion nerve cells in their bodies, other mammals, such as blue whales, boast at least twice that number.

The University of Tennessee points out that the elephant's brain is about three times as big as that of a human and contains about three times as many nerves.

The University of Washington explains that nerves are divided into three groups: sensory neurons, motor neurons and interneurons. While sensory neurons send information to YOUR central nervous system, motor neurons send information away from YOUR central nervous system. Kind of like a freeway.

For example, information picked up from the nose and ears, like smells and sounds, travels through your sensory neurons to your brain. Interneurons connect the sensory and motor neurons.

I know that sounds complicated (and it is), so that’s why you want a good functioning nervous system. Being healthy is more than just feeling good.

Nerve cells transfer electrical signals to and from your central nervous system. (We adjust your spine, which affects your central nervous system and these electrical signals for the good.)

Also, nerve cells are usually NOT replaced like other cells in the body. The older a human being gets, the fewer neurons he has, although there is some evidence that new neurons can grow in adults.

So my point today is this. As you AGE, (and we’re all doing it), there’s a chance that you’re losing neurons or nerve cells, so it’s important that you take care of the ones you have - - so you can function as normal as possible and have a good quality of life.

I don’t know about you, but I want to live my life with quality and not confined to a wheelchair or a hospital bed. As always, life is a choice, as is health. Make the right choice and get your nervous system checked on a regular basis.

It pays off long term. Call and make your appointment now!
