Can Chiropractic Care Improve Your Body’s Ability to Self Heal?

central-nervous-system-1The human body is continuously striving to maintain health adequate for survival. More than 10,000 disturbances to our cells come from free radicals. Some of the most potent varieties include reactive oxygen species (ROS) which our cells must constantly defend against. Our bodies are equipped with the amazing capability to self-heal by preventing and repairing damage done to the body. One powerful strategy to enhance this ability for our bodies to self-heal is chiropractic care.

The complex network of activity that controls all functions within the body, including healing, is the central nervous system.
Consisting of the brain and spinal cord, the central nervous system serves as a signaling pathway to communicate with 75 trillion cells for proper functioning. Part of our physiological makeup needed for the human body to function optimally is a sensory system called proprioception. Proprioception allows the brain to sense information based off of stimuli being inflicted on skin, joints, and muscle receptors.

Healing is affected by Physical Nerve Stress

When the spinal bones are improperly aligned this causes a physical form of nerve stress that adversely impacts the body’s healing potential. The stress hormone cortisol elevates when physical nerve stress creates a deficiency in proprioception. This disrupts brain signaling and therefore disturbs the body’s potential for healing.

Daily trauma such as sports activities and common accidents at home or in the car are known as macro traumas. Less noticeable traumas including repetitive motions, improper sleep habits, and bad posture are referred to as micro traumas and also cause spine and nervous system damage. A modern day health epidemic receiving little attention.
