The spinal column remains straight and balanced as long as the weight of the head is centered over the neck. When the weight of the head is shifted off center due to an accident or injury, the body will compensate and move into an imbalanced position. In an effort to keep the head centered over the neck, the spine and pelvis will twist and lock into a stressed position.
This imbalance shows up with one of the legs being longer or shorter, one hip higher or lower, twisting of the body framework, muscular imbalance, abnormal movement, and over time progressive wear and tear.
This body position can cause stress, tension and pressure on the entire nervous system, most importantly the brain stem (base of the brain). This is very important because our body shuttle millions of electrical and chemical impulses back and forth from the brain to every cell of our body each day. Any restriction of distortion of those messages (nerve impulses) can affect every body function. Many of these message are unconscious such as breathing, digestion, and circulation.
If this is not corrected, the long term effect is degeneration of that part of the body serviced by those restricted messages-resulting in mild to sever pain, lowered resistance to illness, behavioral changes, organ dysfunction, loss of mobility in limbs, and ultimately disease.
