At Wellness Plus, we are amazed at how wonderfully complicated the body is. Today we want to take a moment and explain, in a general sense, how your body works and how Chiropractic can help!
Your entire body is made up of multiple systems, and each system has a job they must maintain in order for you to be healthy. These systems include: Digestive, Reproductive, Circulatory, Endocrine, Integumentary, Lymphatic, Muscular, Nervous, Excretory, Respiratory, and Skeletal.
But how do all the systems in the body communicate with one another? Through nerves! Part of the nervous system, nerves are the most important communicators within your body. That is why it is so important to take care of your nerves and make sure they can send signals throughout your body appropriately.
How do we make sure they can communicate effectively without disruption? Through Chiropractic! Chiropractic focuses on the overall wellness of the body. By focusing on the spinal cord, the spine, and the correct alignment of each, chiropractic assists in the proper flow of communication from your brain through your nerves to systems throughout your body.

How Chiropractic care can help your TMJ
Temporomandibular joint disorders, or TMJ is a group of disorders that afflict the joint which connects the jaw and skull. If you are experiencing pain in the jaw below, behind, or near your ear, it could be subject to TMJ. This pain could impair your ability to eat and talk, as well as cause you to experience dizziness, pain, and headaches. After being seen by a medical professional and diagnosed with TMJ, chiropractors can help you manage the disorder through chiropractic.
Chiropractic works to alleviate the pressure placed on joints and nerves within the body, therefore can assist with pain related to TMJ.

Chiropractic can be a positive addition to a pregnant woman’s care plan.
Realistically, there is no negative aspect to a pregnant woman receiving chiropractic care. In fact, there are many benefits for receiving chiropractic care throughout pregnancy.
But how exactly can chiropractic help with the pregnancy?
Even before the conception of a child, Chiropractic can help a woman with her fertility. Chiropractic maintains the overall wellness of the human body by focusing on the spine and spinal cord. Seeing as our bodies are one system made up of many, the nervous system plays a delicate and dominant role in the wellness of a woman’s reproductive ability. Vertebrae within the spine can shift and caused a subluxation of the nerves associated with the reproductive system in a woman. If the reproductive organs are not receiving the proper information from the brain, they will not function optimally. Being regularly aligned by Chiropractor can assist in the care plan of a woman who may be worried about her fertility.
When a woman becomes pregnant, her entire body begins to alter alignment in order to compensate for the future fetus. A woman’s hips begin to widen in order to allow the fetus to pass through during birth. This change of alignment in the hips causes misalignment in other areas of the body such as the spine, shoulders, and neck. Because of this, it is very important for a pregnant woman to be consistent with her chiropractic care underneath a chiropractor who understands the body of a pregnant woman.
The wonderful miracle of birth can take a toll on the mother's body unlike anything else. Pain, tears, and joy. what’s a woman has had her baby, her body begins the process of attempting to align back to her pre-pregnancy form. Woman’s body will never be the same after childbirth but through chiropractic care misalignments that were caused during this wonderful miracle of life can be either corrected or treated.
Here at Wellness Plus, we want to make sure that you and your baby are taken care of in the best way possible. If you are woman who is having trouble with fertility, or woman who has just found out she is pregnant, do not hesitate to give us a call or come into the office and talk with us about how we can help you and your future baby.
