Science explains the intimate relationship that exists between the spine and central nervous system. Any alteration in the way the spinal vertebrae are aligned or moving will create a stress response in the central nervous system. When this occurs, stress hormones are increased throughout the blood and body. Stress hormones are necessary for survival in a fight or flight situation, but do not provide a good internal environment for growth and development when they are elevated long term.
Chiropractic adjustments gently improve the alignment and movement in the spine and allow a reduction in stress hormones. This improves many aspects of health and function and is the reason why every child and adult deserves to understand and experience the benefits of chiropractic.
