The NMSK in a nutshell
The neuromusculoskeletal (NMSK) system is made up of the bones of the skeleton, muscles, tendons, joints, ligaments, cartilages, and the nerves serving them. Its main role is to provide structure, support, stability, and movement to the body.
The spine (formed by 33 vertebrae that interlock with each other) houses and protects the spinal cord. The spinal cord is an extension of the brain and its function is to make a neurological connection between the brain and the rest of the body (like arms and legs), carrying information from the brain to the body parts and back to the brain again through the peripheral nerves (which exit the spinal cord through a space in between the vertebrae). Dysfunctions of the spine (eg. disc herniation, poor posture, trauma) often interfere with those nerves’ ability to transmit information.
Regular chiropractic checkups can identify NMSK dysfunctions and impairments, start the proper treatment (hopefully early enough to avoid major problems), and help to prevent many chronic conditions.
