Mixed Messages

As a kid, did you ever play the game “Telephone”? A bunch of kids sit in a circle and one whispers a message into their neighbour’s ear who, in turn, passes the message on to their neighbour, and so on. The last person in the circle then communicates what they heard – usually a version which does not in the least resemble the original message!

Communication Highway

The nervous system – the brain, spinal cord, and nerves – connects every part of the body, creating a communication highway. The nerves communicate with each other via chemical and electrical messages. These messages, which are passed along between the brain, spinal cord, nerves and the rest of the body, keep everything connected, coordinated, and functioning on both a cellular and a body level. This includes basic cell and organ function as well as more sophisticated brain function such as thinking, learning, and memory.
The health of our nervous system impacts the way our body functions. Factors that can affect nerve health include chronic inflammation, spinal misalignment, injury, and compromised mental health.

When the delicate communication highway in the nervous system is compromised, it can quickly turn into a game of telephone – with less amusing results. Messages are delayed, jumbled and misunderstood, and organs and systems start to malfunction.

To prevent this from happening, it is vital to keep the lines of communication open and as unencumbered as possible. Regular chiropractic adjustments help to correct spinal misalignment, ensuring that every part of our body receives the correct message and functions optimally.
