Brain To Muscle Signal Transmissions

Brain To Muscle Signal Transmissions

Sitting At A Desk, Driving, Exercise, And Negative Emotions All Place Stress On Our Brain Transmissions.

Muscles are how we move about and perform our daily tasks, from running and working all the way to breathing and digestion.

Your muscles connect one bone to another, resulting in joint mobility.

But what makes them do what they do? NERVES!

Muscles contract and relax according to impulses sent to them from a specific nerve.

The nerves themselves are, in essence, an extension of your brain, traveling down the spinal cord and eventually to their target muscle (the same for organs in the body).

These pathways brain impulses use to travel to its target muscle are quite intricate, and along with it, there are places that can become dysfunctional.

These areas lower the impulse to the target muscle, producing a less than optimal (strong) effect.

One of the first and most frequent sites where nerve pathways are distorted is the spine.

Going through life and the daily activities we do is enough to mechanically compromise our spinal alignment.

Sitting at a desk, driving, exercising, and even negative emotions all place stress on our central nervous systems.

These stressors result in what chiropractors call subluxations.

Subluxations in the spine affect nerve, muscle, joint, and vasculature in the region. This results in decreased circulation, range of motion, and strength.

Having your spine checked for and cleared of subluxations is one way to assure that you are at your strongest.
