Stress, accidents, sports injuries, even over-exertion, can cause your spine to fall out of its natural alignment. When this happens, your nervous system ceases to function properly, and this could lead to back and neck pain, headaches, and other kinds of problems. Moreover, many types of pain and disease can be linked to problems with your spinal cord and nervous system. It is this "mind-body" connection that forms the tenet of the principles under which chiropractors practice their healing art.
The two major, underlying principles are:
- The structure and condition of the body influences how it functions and heals.
- The mind-body relationship is essential in maintaining health and healing.
- Your body's functions are all interrelated, and its ability to heal is contingent on these interrelationships.
- A healthy body comes from a healthy nervous system, especially a healthy spine.
