Have you heard of it?
The VAGUS nerve comprises one of the most important nerves in the body. The vagus nerve helps control and regulate important autonomic functions such as heart rate, breathing, respiration, digestion, hormone control, and more. The vagus nerve starts in the brainstem and branches down through the spine to vital organs. Normal body function relies on the health of the vagus nerve and its ability to send, receive, and perceive nerve messages.
The vagus nerve process is especially important to Chiropractors because of the link between essential nerves, the spine, and the upper neck. Spinal health plays a significant role in directing the health of the vagus nerve. If the spine is in dysfunction, information passed between the vagus nerve and other nerves in the body are interrupted and consequently so is your health!
A Chiropractor will pay close attention to the alignment and movement of the spine so that your nerve messages flow with ease and your body is active in health!
One of the primary tests we do at Kauri Chiropractic is “Heart Rate Variability.” This test checks the function and efficiency of the vagus nerve by measuring autonomic activity. A higher HRV indicates better output and a healthier person. Your body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism. The ability to self-heal and self-regulate is organized and coordinated via your nervous system. HRV measures how well your body adapts to stress and whether it is in self-healing and self-regulating mode!
Better health and overall function within the nervous system are the benefits of seeing Dr. Aaron at Kauri Chiropractic. We address the root cause beyond band-aiding symptoms of pain!
Your nervous system and the quality of your health and life are super important. Chiropractic adjustments support the nervous system as every nerve in your body is connected via the spinal cord up to your brain stem.
