The weight of a dime is all it takes to drain normal nerve transmission to a trickle. Stretching a nerve by as little as 6% can also decrease its signal strength by 70%. So what does that mean for you?

Your Spine transmits the data of Life. Depending on role, thickness, and sheath covering, some nerves can relay information from your brain to your body at speeds exceeding 200mph. If those impulses are communicating vital instructions like ‘how many times your heart needs to beat,’ or ‘how should your immune system respond to a pre-cancerous lesion,’ you want those messages traveling at the highest possible speeds. With NO interference. If those signals get blocked at the spine because of Subluxation, damage to your health becomes eminent.

Sustained pressure and stretch on spinal nerves may not manifest symptoms immediately. Detrimental effects usually grow silently until a crisis occurs. That’s why it’s important to keep your spine in proper alignment with regular chiropractic care, so your good health doesn’t stop on a dime.
