Acting on an Impulse
When telephone lines are down, do you restore service by working on your telephone? Apply this same common
sense to your body. Between each of the 24 vertebrae lie pairs of nerves that extend to all parts of the body. If one vertebra
is misaligned, it can put pressure on surrounding nerves. The result is pain and hindered transfer of nerve impulses that
travel down the spine to corresponding body parts. The function of the affected organ is compromised as a result. To restore
normal nerve function along the spinal cord, the chiropractor uses spinal manipulation to realign the vertebrae. The malfunctioning
organ then resumes normal function under the direction of the nervous system.
