How is your Garden Hose related to Chiropractic care. Also, More Pregnancy Information

One of the best analogies in chiropractic is that of the garden hose and irrigation.  Water flows through the hose and waters the garden.  With an ample supply of water, the garden flourishes and is healthy.  Cut off the water and the plants wither, dry-up and eventually die.  The same can be said of your nervous system.  Nerve impulses flow through the spinal nerves from the brain and spinal cord and control and co-ordinate the function of every system in your body.  Decrease the nerve flow and the body does not work as well as it should and eventually symptoms and ill health occur.  Cut off the nerve flow entirely and the body ceases to live.  Spinal bone misalignment obstructs nerve flow to the body and can lead to ill health.  Chiropractors correct the alignment of the spine, eliminating nerve pressure so that the body can function as nature intended.

As far as pregancy care is concerned, in my opinion this is the most important reason for pregnant women to have regular chiropractic care throughout the 9 months of pregnancy.  The reproductive organs, including the uterous are under direct control of the nervous system. The nerves in the lower back are responsible for innervating the important organs needed for the developing baby. Misaligned lower back vertebra cause neural disruption and interfere with the vital nerve flow to all of the pregnancy related body parts.
