Your Spine Is Central to Your Overall Health
The Effects of Vertebral Subluxations
Your Spinal Cord Is the Organizer of Disease Processes
PhD Neurophysiologist Irvin Korr spent five decades of his life studying the spine and its direct influence on the central nervous system. In 1976, he published a series of papers with many references pointing to the fact that an altercation in a segment, or area, of the spine absolutely negatively affects the functioning of the nervous system. His work toward understanding the relationship of the spine and nervous system is profound. (In fact, he published so many articles in his career and had such an influence on studies of the spine and nervous system that his eulogy was published in PubMed!)
Your Spine Contains 90% of the Connections to Your Brain and Central Nervous System
Korr believed that our internal organs were designed to maintain the musculature system. Your central nervous system, which stems directly from your spine, contains a multitude of nerve endings that not only connect to every internal organ but also lead to your joints and soft tissue mechanoreceptors, discs, and the muscles attached directly to each vertebra. In fact, 90% of the connections with your nervous system lead to your musculoskeletal system.
Korr’s work validates the power of a chiropractic adjustment
Korr attributed his long life (mid 90s) and prolonged intellectual activity to receiving quality traditional osteopathic and chiropractic spinal adjustive care. And Korr passionately showed that the medical approach of glorifying internal organs misunderstands the true nature of the human body.
90% of Your Brain’s Stimulation and Nutrition Is Generated from Your Spine
Korr proved that the spine was much more than a structure that helps us stand erect and protect the spinal cord. The importance of taking care of you as a “whole person” in healthcare is essential for well-being, rather than the reductionist viewpoint of treating only a diseased organ or other symptoms.
