The Science Behind the Nervous System In Your Spine
There are a large amount of nerves throughout the spine that can be easily compressed or “pinched” if it is not taken care of properly. The compression on the nerves sends a signal to your brain to let you know that something is wrong. Sometimes a pinched nerve can even cause pain in your legs or hips. A misaligned spine can also cause inflammation that could make you feel stiff or sore. Considering that the spine is the literal backbone of your nervous system, it’s important to ensure it is properly taken care of through consistent chiropractic care.
