Have You Ever Seen Electricity?
The most obvious answer to the question that we pose is no. You have not seen electricity. Electricity is much as a phenomenon such as gravity is. Whether you believe it or not, it is happening. How do we even know if electricity works. For the same instance that a light bulb can be powered on and energy is produced, we must assume that something is working. Electricity has many positive merits as well as one negative, with enough electricity surged through someone it can end life.
Your Body Is Electric
It’s electricity! When understanding the human body and what chiropractic care is, it very easy to associate with electricity. As chiropractor’s we know that the body is a self regulating and self healing organism. All intelligence of the human is organized and controlled via the central nerve system (CNS). The CNS coordinates and controls all aspects of life, and it begins from the inside – out. Messages from the CNS are sent to every cell in the human body from electrical impulses. The energy of a nerve transmission is always electrical in nature. When a nerve is excited and produces energy the transmission is traveling at 350 feet per second. That’s electric!
Stay Plugged In
Nerve cells are designed specifically to transmit messages from one cell to another. They are keen on making sure everything is communicating properly. During “Life” stress occurs. This stress alters the firing capacity and can even limit what the body is capable of doing. When a nerve is acted upon (pressure) it initially becomes overstimulated. This stimulation directly affects how the body functions. Improper firing of the nerves occurs, abnormal patterns are initiated, and your body enters into a protection mode. Chiropractic keeps the body properly functioning and plugged in. Something works a lot better when it is plugged in. Same thing with your body. If your body is not properly plugged into the brain, chaos begins.
