Chiropractic Restores Function to Body Systems

The central nervous systems is responsible for maintaining proper function to all our body’s systems, including those pertaining to digestive health, such as the stomach, intestines, and gallbladder. If one of these organs isn’t functioning properly, it can cause pain or sensitivity in the region of the organ, notifying you that something is wrong. Spinal misalignments can cause nerve interference that blocks communication between the brain and spine to all the rest of the body’s systems. When this happens, your body’s systems can’t function properly, leading to poor health. Dr. Jeff Vitenas, a chiropractor in Metairie, Mid-City, and Jefferson Parish, will examine the spinal column and assess for spinal subluxations. A gentle adjustment can remove misalignments, restoring proper nerve communication so that function is restored to the digestive system.
