Chiropractic is about helping people live healthier, fuller lives. At Parkway, we focus on the nervous system and adjust the vertebral column to affect it. According to Gray's Anatomy, the nervous system is the master control system for the entire body, controlling and coordinating all the other systems such as respiratory, digestive, muscular, and immune.
The nervous system includes the brain, spinal cord, and the spinal nerves that exit the vertebral column through openings on the side of each vertebra. It also includes all the peripheral nerves that branch off the spinal nerves to serve organs, tissues, blood vessels and muscles. Information from the environment, both external and internal, goes through the spine to get to the brain. In the same manner, information and decisions made in the brain go through the spine to affect certain outcomes in the body. It is a two-way flow of information.
The chiropractic adjustment removes any disruptions or distortions of this energy flow that may be caused by slight vertebral misalignments called subluxations. At Strive, we are trained to locate these subluxations and then to remove them to restore the normal flow of nerve energy. Prepare to have your power turned on!
If the master control system (the nervous system) is healthy and functioning at 100%, then other systems under its control will also function at 100%. The same innate intelligence that can grow a single cell into a complex human being, made of billions of cells, can also heal the body if it is free of interference or disturbances to the nervous system.
The philosophy of chiropractic is that health, not merely the absence of symptoms, comes from within the body, not from the outside. It is the innate, or inborn, intelligence of our bodies that does the healing.
