Nervous System Physiology
Virtually every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body is controlled and regulated by your nervous system. And while the complex chemical and electrical nature of this vast network is best left to others, here are four key things you should know:
Nerve impulses are sent from the brain out to the organs and tissues of your body.
Nerve impulses are sent back to the brain to make sure everything is working correctly.
If spinal vertebrae pinch or choke nerve tissue, signals going from or to the affected organ or tissue can be diminished. (i.e., constipation.)
If spinal vertebrae chafe or irritate nerve tissue, signals going from or to the affected organ or tissue can be excited. (i.e., diarrhea.)
The nervous system is vulnerable where delicate nerve tissue comes into proximity with the moving bones of your spine. That's why we're interested in your spine!
