Turgor is the scientific name for stiffness or rigidity within a tissue. A wilted plant, due to lack of water, has LOW turgor, whereas one with NORMAL turgor stands strong and upright while maintaining its flexibility.
Your body also has turgor. When too high, you experience stiffness and rigidity---a bad thing. Think of a balloon that's filled with air right up to its bursting point. Too much turgor in this case has rendered it stiff, tight, unpliable, rigid, unyielding and on the brink of popping. Likewise, too much turgor in your body, especially in your spine, can put you on the edge of physical failure.
Like releasing air in an over inflated balloon, chiropractic adjustments can often reduce the stress and tension that build in your body from daily stress. Chiropractic clients often express a sense of overall ease after they get adjusted. Regularly purging that excess pressure from your spine by getting adjusted at least once a week is not only great for your nervous system, but with the right balance of flexibility and stability (turgor), you'll enjoy a better quality of life.
