00:00:08:00 , 00:00:09:15 , So what’s the big idea?
00:00:09:20 , 00:00:13:00 , Well, the big idea is your |central nervous system.
00:00:13:00 , 00:00:14:15 , Your central nervous system
00:00:14:15 , 00:00:16:20 , is made up of your brain and spinal cord
00:00:16:24 , 00:00:19:15 , and is continually monitoring |and coordinating
00:00:19:20 , 00:00:22:04 , every single function in your body.
00:00:22:08 , 00:00:24:20 , If you think of the brain |as a central computer
00:00:25:03 , 00:00:28:10 , that controls and coordinates all |the functions of your body,
00:00:28:12 , 00:00:31:20 , then the nervous system is like a |communication network
00:00:32:01 , 00:00:34:21 , that relays messages back |and forth from the brain
00:00:35:01 , 00:00:38:17 , to different parts of the body| via the spinal cord.
00:00:38:21 , 00:00:41:18 , The spinal cord is a long |bundle of nerve tissue
00:00:41:21 , 00:00:43:21 , which extends from the lower |part of your brain
00:00:44:04 , 00:00:46:04 , down through your spinal column.
00:00:46:12 , 00:00:49:10 , Along the way smaller braids |branch off from the cord
00:00:49:12 , 00:00:51:02 , and pass out from the spine
00:00:51:03 , 00:00:53:17 , between each of the moveable vertebra.
00:00:53:21 , 00:00:57:10 , These braids divide again and |again into tiny nerve fibre
00:00:57:15 , 00:00:59:03 , and fill the entire body
00:00:59:08 , 00:01:02:10 , going to each cell, organ and tissue.
00:01:02:15 , 00:01:06:10 , Every human has an estimated |15 billion nerve cells
00:01:06:15 , 00:01:09:23 , sending and receiving messages |through the spinal cord.
00:01:10:21 , 00:01:13:19 , Our nervous system is |extremely delicate.
00:01:13:24 , 00:01:17:10 , So what protects it? Our spine.
00:01:18:05 , 00:01:20:14 , This is what a normal, |healthy spine looks like.
00:01:20:19 , 00:01:23:05 , It has 24 moveable vertebrae
00:01:23:12 , 00:01:26:10 , each working with the one |above and below it.
00:01:26:10 , 00:01:28:05 , A disc separates the vertebrae
00:01:28:05 , 00:01:31:10 , and acts like a shock absorber |and a spacer for the nerve.
00:01:31:15 , 00:01:33:24 , So why is a healthy spine so important?
00:01:34:05 , 00:01:37:19 , Well, it protects the spinal cord |and the delicate nerve tissue
00:01:37:24 , 00:01:41:14 , and allows us to bend, flex, |twist and move freely
00:01:41:19 , 00:01:43:15 , without compromising the nerves.
00:01:44:19 , 00:01:46:05 , If the spine is not moving freely
00:01:46:12 , 00:01:49:21 , it’s referred to as a |vertebral subluxation complex
00:01:50:01 , 00:01:52:24 , or, for short, a subluxation.
00:01:53:02 , 00:01:55:24 , Is that right?
00:01:56:02 , 00:01:58:02 , Sub-lux-ation.
00:01:58:08 , 00:02:00:21 , Is there another word we |can use for that?
00:02:01:03 , 00:02:02:20 , No, right, OK.
00:02:03:00 , 00:02:04:17 , This is when two or more vertebra
00:02:04:21 , 00:02:07:11 , have lost their normal motion |and/or position.
00:02:07:17 , 00:02:09:21 , This can cause interruption to |the normal nerve flow
00:02:13:07 , 00:02:14:20 , and from the body back to the brain.
00:02:14:20 , 00:02:18:08 , So what happens when |you have a subluxation?
00:02:18:08 , 00:02:21:22 , That area can start to degenerate |in as little as 2 weeks.
00:02:21:22 , 00:02:24:18 , This degeneration causes |scar tissue to develop
00:02:24:22 , 00:02:27:15 , which leads to more scar tissue.
00:02:27:19 , 00:02:30:04 , This degenerative process can continue
00:02:30:08 , 00:02:32:01 , as long as the immobilisation is present
00:02:32:05 , 00:02:34:20 , and this type of degeneration |is preventable.
00:02:36:07 , 00:02:39:17 , If the nerve supply to anywhere| in the body is disturbed
00:02:39:24 , 00:02:42:01 , it can eventually lead to a symptom.
00:02:42:02 , 00:02:44:11 , Symptoms are the only way for |your body to let you know
00:02:44:12 , 00:02:45:17 , that something’s wrong.
00:02:46:02 , 00:02:48:06 , So let’s go back to the |same spine again.
00:02:48:15 , 00:02:50:16 , If you have nerve interference |in the cervical spine
00:02:50:23 , 00:02:53:23 , it can lead to headaches, migraines, |lowered immune system,
00:02:53:23 , 00:02:56:14 , sinus troubles, hay fever, |abnormal sleep patterns,
00:02:56:17 , 00:03:00:05 , eczema, hearing loss, tonsillitis, |chronic cough, croup,
00:03:00:07 , 00:03:02:04 , pins and needles into the |arms and hands.
00:03:02:07 , 00:03:03:17 , In the thoracic spine –
00:03:04:01 , 00:03:07:04 , asthma, functional heart problems, |bronchitis, influenza,
00:03:07:03 , 00:03:09:09 , gallbladder troubles, liver conditions,
00:03:09:11 , 00:03:12:00 , blood pressure problems, |indigestion, heartburn,
00:03:12:01 , 00:03:15:03 , gastritis, lowered immunity, |allergies, kidney troubles,
00:03:15:04 , 00:03:16:13 , chronic tiredness.
00:03:16:14 , 00:03:17:14 , In the lower back –
00:03:17:17 , 00:03:20:03 , constipation, menstrual problems, |bed-wetting,
00:03:20:04 , 00:03:24:01 , knee problems, sciatica, back ache, |poor circulation, swollen ankles,
00:03:24:02 , 00:03:26:01 , weakness into legs and cramping.
00:03:26:02 , 00:03:28:04 , Wow, I’m out of breath.
00:03:28:00 , 00:03:30:04 , And that’s naming only a few.
00:03:31:13 , 00:03:34:12 , Did you know that less than 10% |of your nervous system
00:03:34:13 , 00:03:36:01 , perceives pain?
00:03:36:02 , 00:03:39:00 , So, quite often, by the time pain |and symptoms appear
00:03:39:05 , 00:03:41:07 , the nerve interference could have |been present for months
00:03:41:10 , 00:03:43:04 , or even years.
00:03:43:01 , 00:03:45:19 , Think about when a person has a |heart attack or a stroke?
00:03:46:04 , 00:03:48:10 , They don’t actually feel the |arteries blocking up
00:03:48:10 , 00:03:51:08 , and usually don’t know anything |is wrong until it’s too late.
00:03:52:02 , 00:03:54:13 , Chiropractors don’t treat the symptoms.
00:03:54:16 , 00:03:57:04 , Rather, they remove the |nerve interference
00:03:57:09 , 00:03:59:01 , which allows the body to do |what it does best –
00:03:59:00 , 00:04:00:12 , heal itself.
00:04:01:00 , 00:04:04:04 , When you get a cut or a |broken bone, who heals it?
00:04:04:17 , 00:04:06:11 , Your body does.
00:04:06:22 , 00:04:09:22 , All forms of the healing |arts have their place,
00:04:10:01 , 00:04:11:00 , and let’s face it,
00:04:11:10 , 00:04:13:01 , medicine has an important role to play
00:04:13:11 , 00:04:15:01 , in crisis and emergency care
00:04:15:11 , 00:04:17:15 , and, in these situations, |can be lifesaving.
00:04:17:20 , 00:04:18:20 , On the other hand
00:04:18:24 , 00:04:21:14 , chiropractic is vital in keeping| your body functioning
00:04:21:20 , 00:04:23:11 , at its best possible level
00:04:23:11 , 00:04:25:10 , by removing nerve interference
00:04:25:10 , 00:04:27:14 , and allowing the body to heal itself.
00:04:27:19 , 00:04:30:11 , So, for health, wellness |and quality of life,
00:04:30:11 , 00:04:34:00 , chiropractic is the smart choice |for you and your family.
