Your Spine and Your Nervous System
Courtesy Texas Sunset Family Chiropractic, Denton County LIVING WELL Magazine
Everyone’s familiar with regular health checkups to make sure blood pressure, weight, teeth, hearing, vision, and other benchmarks are met. The doctor takes health measurements and asks if you are eating right, drinking plenty of water, exercising consistently, sleeping well, and generally taking care of yourself. These medical screenings coupled with a balanced lifestyle are necessary for optimal health. However, something is missing. Taking periodic stock of your body’s spinal alignment and health is also necessary for normal health and healing.
The notion of regular central nervous system checkups is less established, perhaps because not everyone knows how valuable they are to measuring health. Yet checking your spinal health can help identify threats to your nervous system, which controls every function of your body. If you had a threat to the most important system in your body that controls every function and all healing wouldn’t it be a good idea to detect it as soon as possible? In fact, if you could detect that something was going to cause you to spend all your time, spend all your money and send you to a nursing home, wouldn’t you want to know?
One of the worst threats is vertebral subluxation, which can be caused from slips and falls, sports-related injuries, every day repetitive trauma, and even birth. Vertebral subluxation is when the spine moves out of its normal alignment and begins to put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves causing damage to not only that nerve but also start to shut down organs connected to that nerve.
Damage to the nerves interferes with the brain’s ability to communicate with the rest of your body, and conversely, the vital messages from the nerves slow down and become restricted, thus interfering with your body’s natural ability to heal and repair. Imagine stepping on or stretching a garden hose and decreasing the flow of the water.
The most dangerous fact is that sometimes there are no symptoms when your nervous system and organs are being damaged and shut down. That’s where getting regular nervous system check ups can come in handy! Just like a cavity in a tooth that doesn’t hurt but can be detected at a regular check up before it becomes symptomatic, that’s what regular nervous spine and nervous system check ups can do for you. When is the last time you had your spine and nervous system evaluated by a Maximized Living Chiropractor that is trained to find subluxation and nerve damage and actually correct the spinal alignment, allowing your body to heal naturally the way God designed you? If the answer is more than six months ago, the answer is, too long!
Sometimes the body does send warning signs to get your nervous system checked. Some warnings signs include but are not limited to:
- Low energy
- Balance issues
- Reduced mobility
- Chronic muscle spasms
- Join, neck and back pain
- Chronic headaches
- Sinus infections
- High blood pressure
If you have never had your spine and nervous system checked by a Maximized Living chiropractor, the best time is now. Waiting until you are in pain to address your health is one of the worst decisions most people make, leading to higher costs to get out of pain.

I can talk all day about the science but really what moves us is proof…
Graves Disease in the Grave!
“My wife had graves disease when I met her 11 years ago. She started getting adjusted, stopped drinking diet soda, and she now has a normal functioning thyroid confirmed for four years with blood tests that her endocrinologist couldn’t believe. He had been in practice for 32 years and never saw a case where a thyroid started functioning normally after two years of medications. We have three kids now and she doesn’t have a problem. The chiropractic principle of healing always works.”
“Our 17-year-old Matt was about to have his full intestine removed from having Crohn’s disease. He started getting adjusted and living the 5 Essentials and had the disease completely turned around. His school required a colonoscopy to let him back in because he was so bad and missed so much school. Testing showed it was as if he never had the disease.”
“My 6-year-old daughter had major headaches/digestive/behavior issues. After two months of care and all symptoms are gone.”
My 80-year-old husband was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s. He wouldn’t even fill out his paperwork himself because he was embarrassed about the penmanship. After one month of care, he could mow his lawn in two hours without a break, as compared to four hours, and he has no shaking anymore!
“I’ve been going to a Maximized Living health center for seven months and I was able to dump prescriptions into the Drug Freedom Trash Can! I really had no idea what Maximized Living was all about when I heard it on a radio show. I soon learned and was inspired by a Maximized Living Makeover. I was inspired by the testimonials people gave embracing the 5 Essentials. I started out very slowly, soaking in all the information. I knew this was a great program because God is at the center of it! I want a purpose and a balanced life spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
Through the program, I have lost 25 pounds in just three months on the Advanced Plan and MaxT3 workouts and I have stopped taking five prescription medications. I know it’s a long journey of faith and hope but I am grateful to be in God’s hand.”
