Why is Spinal Hygiene Important?

chiropractichealthDecades ago the general public did not realize that infection was the leading cause of death. They did not understand the importance of hand washing, especially when a surgeon scrubbed and disinfected his hands before surgery. Simultaneously, the public did not know that poor hygiene made them more susceptible to deadly disease. But over the decades scientific research has educated us on all the important ways we can protect and maintain our health.
Today, one of the newest frontier in health is spinal hygiene, and slowly, people are starting to realize its importance.

The spine is the protective housing for the nervous system, a system so powerful that it controls every function in the human body. The nervous system tells your body to breath, tells your heart to beat, tells your arms and legs to move, tells your body when and how to produce new cells, and it even has the power to control healing. A damaged or misaligned spine can dramatically interfere with the signals constantly being sent through the nervous system, eventually resulting in bodily pain, internal deteoration and loss of many of the everyday functions we take for granted.

Spinal hygiene is extremely important, yet 89 percent of the world’s population does not realize the importance of maintaining proper alignment of the vertebrae through chiropractic adjustment, as well as protecting the spine from injury through healhty living practices.

Instead we neglect our spines. As children we start our lives with tumbles and trips that jar our spines, we grow into adults with poor posture, we lift things that are too heavy, carry overloaded back packs, and we suffer injury through car accidents, sports impacts and stress.
