SPINE – Root of Human Body

Just as a Tree needs a strong root system in order for it to grow properly and remain healthy, so do we as humans. The spine is one of the most important parts of your body. Without it, you could not keep yourself upright or even stand up.

Your Spine:
• Gives your body structure and support
• Allows you to move and bend
• Protects your spinal cord


The spinal cord is the column of nerves that connects your brain with the rest of your body, allowing you to control your movements. Without a spinal cord, you cannot move any part of your body, and your organs can not function. The spine is the major factor in all movements of the body. It provides balance to the skeletal frame, absorbs jolts and shocks, allows is to move, bend and twist, all the while protecting the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Support for the head is paramount because the neck is involved in quick coordinating movements for survival and protection and in general daily activities.

Protection of the central nervous system allows it to function optimally via the spinal cord, housed within the spine, which controls the function of every single cell, tissue and organ in the body. The spine can become distorted by daily work habits such as a mailman carrying a heavy mailbag, a mother carrying her child on her hip or poor work postures.

Distortions are also produced by injuries dues to falls, whiplash, strains and prolonged or repetitive emotional stress. The importance of the spine to our health has been recognized by great men for centuries. Hippocrates, Greek physician after who the “Hippocratic Oath” is named, recognized the importance of the spine saying: “Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases.” Another famous Greek physician, Claudius Galen, who was considered the greatest anatomist and physiologist of classical times said, “Look to the nervous system as the key to maximum health.” And from our own Thomas Edison, “The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”

Spinal subluxations, which interfere with the normal flow of nerve energy between the brain and the body’s tissue cells, can hamper the normal function of the glandular, eliminative, nervous, digestive, and muscular and circulatory systems of the body. The primary symptoms are pain and/or disease.
