If you bought an iPhone 4, you may be one of thousands of frustrated users who discovered their brand new $400 smart phone drops calls if held the wrong way. That can be real annoying. But are you aware of the more serious dropped calls occurring in your body right now because your spine is “holding” your nerves the wrong way?
Imagine if your brain was in the middle of telling your heart to ‘keep beating…’ and your nerves dropped the call. Or your immune cells were desperately calling in a request for a higher fever to fight a persistent infection… and your nerves dropped that call too. The negative effects on your health could be devastating. When spinal bones misalign, they literally ‘hold the spinal cord’ in a manner that interrupts communication between your brain and your body. Chiropractors call these “dropped calls” Subluxations.
A few ‘dropped’ nerve calls (Subluxations) can result in numbness, tingling, pain, or other symptoms while others may cause more serious health issues, like cardiac malfunction or some other visceral problem, if normal communication is not restored promptly. Most of those aren't noticed right away.
That's why it's so important to keep regular with your chiropractic care so the communication between your brain and body is at full strength all the time. Remember, if your new iPhone drops a call, it's just an inconvenience. When your nerve system does it, it's a potential crisis.
