To control and organize your growth, the nervous system consisting of your brain, spinal cord, and all the nerves of your body were the first tissues formed.
Today your nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ, and system of your body.
The vital communication pathway of the spinal cord is vulnerable, covered by 24 moving bones on the spinal column.
Pairs of nerve roots branch off the spinal cord from between each spinal joint to service the organs and tissues of your body.
Because of the way your spine is designed, improper motion or position of spinal bones can irritate or choke delicate nerves – interfering with the function of the tissues they control. Doctors call this a subluxation.
