Have you ever heard someone say “that grates on my nerves?” Well, when one or many stimuli in your environment irritate, or over stimulate your nerve system, without it having a chance to refract (have a quiet phase), you will experience irritability. Chiropractic care’s main objective is to lessen or remove irritation to the nerve system. Our work allows the nerve system to wind down. In fact often, during or after receiving care, a patient is heard to sigh, …a sigh of relief (of irritation and tension). By teaching our patients what they each personally need to do to prevent and remove irritation to their nerve systems, they can then keep themselves aligned in such a way so as to improve their ability to adapt to day to day stressors, thereby preventing irritability, and have a much greater experience of peace.
