Broken Brains and The Chiropractic Approach : The Connection

The neural-brain-immune pathway is a complex system that connects the nervous system, the brain, and the immune system. When this pathway is functioning properly, the body is able to fight off infections and maintain overall health. However, when there is a disruption in this pathway, it can lead to a variety of health problems, including colds, flu, and sinus issues.

The neural-brain-immune connection

One of the main causes of disruptions in the neural-brain-immune pathway is Tiny Movement Deficiencies, which are subtle misalignments in the spine that can interfere with the flow of nerve signals between the brain and the body. These misalignments can start in childhood and continue throughout adulthood, leading to a variety of health problems.

These sensory organs not only detect movement, but they also play a critical role in balance, posture, and coordination. They allow us to sense changes in pressure and movement in our surroundings, helping us navigate and react to our environment.

Moreover, mechanoreceptors are also involved in proprioception, which is the ability to sense the position and movement of our body parts without using our eyes. This is why people with balance and coordination issues often have problems with their mechanoreceptors.

Overall, the study of mechanoreception in both aquatic and terrestrial animals is critical for understanding how animals interact with their environments, and how we as humans can improve our balance, coordination, and overall movement abilities.

Chiropractic Brain Health

Chiropractic care is a holistic approach that seeks to restore proper alignment and function to the spine, thereby improving the flow of nerve signals and restoring balance to the neural-brain-immune pathway. By addressing the root cause of health problems, rather than just treating their symptoms, chiropractic care can help patients achieve optimal health and wellness.

However, it is important to note that not all chiropractic care is created equal. Just like any other healthcare profession, there are good and bad practitioners. Proper chiropractic care requires a thorough understanding of the body’s anatomy and physiology, as well as a comprehensive approach to addressing the underlying causes of health issues.

In summary, the neural-brain-immune pathway plays a critical role in maintaining overall health, and disruptions in this pathway can lead to a variety of health problems. Tiny Movement Deficiencies are a common cause of these disruptions, and chiropractic care is an effective approach to restoring proper alignment and function to the spine, thereby improving the health of the neural-brain-immune pathway and the body as a whole.
