Avoiding Short Circuits

Posted June 8, 2012 @ 12:14pm | by Kori Mortenson

Your spinal cord is like an information superhighway with the "circuitry" necessary to run your body:

Sensory Nerve System: Taste, touch, sight, sound and smell are examples of your nerve system sending information to your brain.

Motor Nerve System:  Motor nerves control how your muscles work.  Compromose here might prevent you from standing or walking, or it could mean a lack of coordination, poor balance or wasting away.

Autonomic Nerve System:  The autonomic nerve system controls cardiovascular, digestive and respiratory functions as well as salivation, perspiration and many essential involuntary functions.

Sympathetic Nerve System:  The sympathetic nerve system mediates the fight or flight response to stress.  It has a deep connection with your hormonal system to secrete adrenaline, alert your cardiovascular system and the rest of the body of impending danger, real or imagined.

Like an electrician, we're interested in the circuitry of your body.  The moving bones of the spine are often the source of "brown outs," short circuits and blown fuses.  If you think chiropractic is only about your back, think again!
