The Marvel of Human Life: A Close Look at the Nervous System

brain-neurons-sq-300Life starts minuscule—merely a union of a single cell from Mom and Dad. This minuscule formation grows over nine months into a marvelous human being. As the cell develops, so do numerous systems within this nascent form, namely the nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, reproductive, digestive, skeletal, and muscular systems.

The First System to Take Form

Contrary to popular belief, it’s not the heart that forms first during development but the nervous system. The brain, spinal cord, and all body nerves start to form just 18 days after conception. A fascinating fact is that most women aren’t even aware they’re pregnant when their baby’s brain is already beginning to develop.

Why the Nervous System First?

You can view the nervous system as the central orchestrator for the entire body, coordinating all its functions. It tells your heart to pump blood, lungs to breathe, stomach to digest, and other body functions.

Chiropractic Focus on the Spine and Nervous System

This essential role of the nervous system explains why chiropractic primarily addresses it and the spine. A well-functioning spine and nervous system without obstructions leads to harmony in the body. Chiropractic care aims to remove these obstructions so your body can function at its highest, healthiest level.

Here’s what two of our practice members had to say about our care:

Mariko had a Network treatment in PA and wanted to continue. Mike had an acupuncture treatment in PA but was not satisfied. We both like this modality because it treats the body, mind, and spirit. Mariko plays the recorder and notices that she can blow her breath longer while she is playing. Mike and Mariko think that the chiropractic care helped them to make the transition moving from PA to CO. We learned that healing is a process, and it helped us to discover our inner light as well as outer adaptability. The practitioners and the receptionists are very kind and supportive!
