HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR SPINE?
The spine is the major factor in all movements of the body. It provides balance
to the skeletal frame, absorbs jolts and shocks, allows is to move, bend and
twist, all the while protecting the spinal cord and spinal nerves.
The spine can become distorted by daily work habits such as a mailman carrying
a heavy mailbag, a mother carrying her child on her hip or poor work postures.
Distortions are also produced by injuries dues to falls, whiplash, strains
and prolonged or repetitive emotional stress.
The importance of the spine to our health has been recognized by great men
for centuries. Hippocrites, the celebrated Greek physician after who the "Hippocratic
Oath" is named, recognized the importance of the spine saying: "Get
knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases."
Another famous Greek physician, Claudius Galen, who was considered the greatest
anatomist and physiologist of classical times said, "Look to the nervous
system as the key to maximum health."
And from our own Thomas Edison, "The doctor of the future will give no
medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in
diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Spinal subluxations, which interfere with the normal flow of nerve energy
between the brain and the body's tissue cells, can hamper the normal function
of the glandular, eliminative, nervous, digestive, muscular and circulatory
systems of the body. The primary symptoms are pain and/or disease.
