Chiropractic and your nervous system
Your nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord and millions of nerves which control every cell in your body. The nervous system is protected by your skull and the 24 vertebrae of the spine which have moving joints. When exposed to the stresses of daily work and leisure activities, these spinal joints often lose their normal function resulting in pain or restricted motion. Chiropractors have specialised training in the diagnosis and management of neck, low back and other common musculoskeletal problems. Combined with exercise, postural advice and ergonomics Chiropractic care is an effective form of care especially when directed towards musculoskeletal conditions.
