Healthy Back Support:
What is the
role of the spine and why is adjustment
Doctors stress the importance of spinal traction
and the adjustment of bones and muscles. This is
because bones and muscles support and regulate the
main and collateral spinal channels.
An improperly aligned spine leads to sore bones
and problems in the main and collateral channels,
as well as in the vital organs of the body. Thus,
if the spine is out of proper alignment, it can
cause such things as inflammation of the shoulder,
spurs, nerve pain, stomach aches and joint pain.
Why does pain occur in the vital body organs? -
Because nerves radiate from the spine to the
vital body organs. The nervous system is the
brain's communication system.
A crooked spine constricts the peripheral
nervous system radiating from it. If that nerve
happens to extend to the stomach, the stomach
will be pathologically changed. Vital organs
will ache. The most severe symptoms that can
result from this is compression of the

by Traction: When you are
reclining, the spine does not have to support
the weight of the body, so it assumes a
natural state. By repeatedly swaying the
spine, much like the motion of a fish, the
spine relaxes and adjusts itself accordingly.
Many masseuses hold the ankles and sway the
body at the end of a massage.
The Sun Ancon Chi Machine is very popular with
chiropractors who use it in a supportive role,
for pre-adjustment relaxation, thereby making
their office adjustments much easier to

Autonomic Nervous System.
Autonomic Nervous System(ANS), is housed within
the spine and an essential part of the body,
controlling most of your involuntary and
intuitive everyday body functions.
It is composed of two branches, the
Parasympathetic and the Sympathetic. These two
branches are enclosed within the spinal cord and
extend to the lungs, heart, blood vessels, the
eyes, stomach, intestines, liver and kidneys,
bladder, sex organs and sweat, salivary and
digestive glands. When any of these nerves
malfunction, when one system becomes more active,
the body begins to act up and respond accordingly.
When these systems are working properly, the
Sympathetic and Parasympathetic nerves trade off
as needed. In times of stress or when extra
activation is needed, the Sympathetic system steps
in. Once the crisis is averted, the body settles
down under the gentle care of the Parasympathetic
The Parasympathetic System is fueled by the
neurotransmitter serotonin. Serotonin is created
from tryptophan. Serotonin also makes melatonin
which enables us to sleep better.
