The nervous system is so essential to your body that it is covered within a well-built, bony structure to keep damaging elements away from sensitive nerves. The bony structure consists of the skull, which guards the brain, and the spinal column, which shelters the spinal cord and nerve roots. When this spinal column is not well taken care of it may shift or rotate out of place. This will put pressure on your nerves and interfere with your body's ability to create maximum nerve supply. The benefits of full spine correction are not just to restore proper spinal alignment, but also greater neurological health, maximized brain and organ function, prevention of spinal degeneration, optimal range of motion, high performance and a far greater resistance to injury.
During the correction / restorative phase of care, the number of spinal adjustments you may need will depend on the phase of degeneration in your spine, your overall health and the severity of your problem. Depending on your particular circumstances the doctor may also have you begin doing exercises and stretches at home to help accelerate your healing.
