The Master Control System
The nervous system is the master control system of the body. It is made up of the brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves. This system controls and coordinates all other organs and systems.
Simply put, this means the brain controls the muscular system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the immune system, the hormonal system, etc. The brain is like a computer which runs all body functions by sending and receiving messages over the nerve fibers. It is essential that there be no interference with this nerve supply.
It stands to reason that good health centers around a properly functioning nervous system.
“All body systems would be immobilized without the nervous system. It controls and regulates
everybody activity down to the working of the tiniest cell.”
– World Book Encyclopedia of Science
The nervous system is so vital to overall health that it is encased in a protective bony armor. The brain, which is protected by the skull, extends directly into the spinal cord, which is protected by the 24 moving bones of the spine called “vertebrae”.
When the spine is properly aligned, the nerves are protected and optimum communication (nerve impulse transmission) exists between the brain and the rest of the body. This is when the body is at its highest state of health.
If the skull and vertebrae are misaligned, they can interfere with the function of the nervous system. This is called vertebral subluxation. Subluxations interfere with the flow of nerve impulses. This reduces the body’s natural healing ability.
“Organs supplied by impinged nerves exhibit pathological changes.”
– Henry Windsor, M.D. “The Windsor Autopsies”
According to the laws of biology, structure determines function. Improper structure (subluxation) leads to improper function (dis-ease) in the body. When the upper neck is carefully analyzed and precisely adjusted, the entire spine can regain health and stability.
“An intact nervous system will lead to optimuym functioning of the human body.” – Dorlands’ Medical Text X-Ray and Adjusting
The Blair technique utilizes one of the most advanced x-ray series, which includes three dimensional views, allowing the Blair Chiropractor to customize the adjustment for each individual patient. There are no forceful movements or twisting of the body framework.
We also utilize computerized dual probe infra red thermal scanning to measure paraspinal heat reading.
