A summary —
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free, and hands-on healthcare discipline that focuses on the neuromuscular system: your nerves, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments all working together.
Many problems and pains can either be from neuromuscular issues, or be alleviated through addressing the neuromuscular system. In short: chiropractic care can help many problems with the human body.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM
The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs and all of the nerves that connect these organs with the rest of the body. All of your consciousness and bodily functions are managed through the brain, spinal cord, and the network of nerves that branch from this central nervous system. Attached to your spinal cord, web-like nerves run messages and responses between every muscle, tissue, organ, and system. If one of them gets pinched it can lead to all kinds of things that can cause stress or pain to the body.
PRIMARY and SECONDARY EFFECTS
What is common between your nervous system, relationships, and corporations is if communication between the parts break down, then they don't function well and problems start to show (secondary effects). If you address primary issues then the downstream signs and symptoms tend to improve.
