#2 of 13 things every new patient should know: Your nervous system controls everything.
Every patient knows they have a nervous system. But few know that it controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of the body. Overlook this and patients are likely to see you as merely a bone (spine) doctor rather than a nervous system specialist who is capable of producing whole body effects.
"Because your nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue, organ and system of your body, if you're not enjoying good health, your nervous system is probably involved. So that's our focus. If nerve messages aren't getting from your brain to your body, or, from your body back to your brain, organs and tissues that rely on those messages will malfunction and pain or ill health can result. What do you suppose is the greatest source of interference to these nerve communications?"
