Your spine is designed to house and protect your spinal cord, which along with your brain comprises your central nervous system. All the nerves and nerve cells outside your central nervous system make up your peripheral nervous system. Its task is to relay information from your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body and from your body to your brain and spinal cord. The maintenance of this system - through chiropractic - is an essential component of maintaining health and wellness.
Peripheral nerves comprise all of the nerves beyond the spinal cord. The peripheral nerves are not protected by bone, leaving them exposed to mechanical injury or interference through pressure or irritation. All peripheral nerves leave the spinal cord through small openings in individual spinal vertebra called foramen. These nerve roots are exposed and susceptible to interference or neuropathy (changes in the pathology of the nerves) from the vertebrae themselves as well as the surrounding muscles, ligaments, and tissues.
Chiropractors correct these misalignments by gently adjusting the position of the vertebrae of the spine, reducing or eliminating neuropathy (changes in the pathology of the nerves) thus allowing your body to function optimally.
