We know from science that the brain controls everything in our bodies. It tells our hearts to beat, our lungs to breathe, and all of our muscles to move and it does so without us even having to think about it. The brain communicates through the spinal cord and out to every single organ, tissue, and muscle in the body. When one or more of our spinal bones (called vertebrae) moves out of alignment, it can put pressure on the nerve. That pressure prevents normal communication from happening between the brain and the body, and that’s when disease and dysfunction can occur.
