Nervous system health is critical to the healthy function of the human body. The nervous system helps all the parts of the body to communicate with each other – regulating glands and hormones, and responding to changes both inside and outside of the body.
So often, medical interventions are prescribed under the assumption a patient has a healthy, well-functioning nervous system. LMMT Chiropractors utilize a whole body approach, taking into consideration possible nervous system dysfunction when treating and making recommendations.
The sympathetic nervous system promotes the stress response. Ideally, it stays in balance with your parasympathetic nervous system. But if you are in sympathetic overdrive, you may feel on edge or startle easily, experience chronic muscle tension in the shoulders, neck, and back, or you may have difficulties with weight gain. Chiropractic & massage can help to re-engage the parasympathetic nervous system to support restored balance.
Chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia can stem from any number of root causes, but both are related dominant sympathetic nervous systems. It is no surprise that evidence supports the use of manual therapies to treat these conditions, especially in conjunction with aerobic exercise and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Evidence shows that Chiropractic & Massage care often result in an improvement of symptoms and overall quality of life for patients with Parkinson’s or MS. At LMMT, we provide in-office services and connect patients with local community partners to create comprehensive support.
Sleep issues, IBS & digestive discomfort, menstrual cycle abnormalities, body temperature dysregulation, headaches, & unexplained weight changes are each frustrating to deal with. What about when you experience several symptoms, indicating dysfunction across multiple systems? Improving overall nervous system health can clarify persisting symptoms and in some cases, decreases dysfunction in all systems.
