The Importance of Body Balance
Our body begins to experience pain when there is imbalance. Having the head over our body, held by the neck in an upright position is the optimal balance we should look for in our body. The spinal cord which makes up the nervous system and is housed by the spinal column is the center for controlling the reflexes in the body. But when you encounter certain injuries or accidents, the spine loses its alignment. For example, if you have a neck injury, your body will try to compensate for the injury with an abnormal alignment, just so your neck can hold the head upright. This will cause your spine to twist and lock, resulting in a more painful consequence on other body parts.
The body imbalance may not be physically obvious but it significantly affects bodily functions. The twisting of body structures in your spine will inhibit the normal functions of nerves and muscles that keep you healthy and well. If this is not corrected, body parts affected by the stressors brought by the imbalance will soon cause wear and tear. The millions of electrical impulses that should be carried by the spinal cord to the body cells will not reach the parts of the body as designed, and can affect your normal body functions like digestion, circulation, muscle movement, etc.
If not attended to soon, this pain will soon become chronic and will lead to serious illnesses. Worse, such degeneration will make your body weak, numb, you will lose mobility or your livelihood.
