Do you know which two organs control your entire body?
The brain and the spinal cord. They also happen to be the only to organs that are directly encased in bone in order to protect them from damage.
Your brain sends and receives signals from the rest of your body through the spinal cord. This is why it is so important to make sure your nerves are functioning at 100%. The bones that protect the spinal cord are called vertebra. When these vertebra shift out of their normal position, they put pressure on the nerves, and can cause a problem wherever that nerve goes. As a Chiropractor here in Mankato, MN, it’s my job to find these misalignments in the spine and fix them. This allows your body to function at 100% once again because the irritation on the nerve has been removed. Vertebra that shift out of position are known to cause headaches, neck pain, back pain, sciatica, and many other named conditions.
The picture below does a great job illustrating the connection between your brain and the rest of your body. Give us a call today and get your spine checked. You deserve to be functioning at your best!
