Spinal health affects other functions

I have been reminded lately of  the importance of maintaining excellent spinal health as it relates to the function of other body systems.  Functions such as bladder control, digestion, elimination processes are all influenced by the coondition of the spine.  For those folks who are experiencing bladder control problems, constipation or chronic diarrhea, the spinal nerves in the lumbar area may be at issue.

I have had a large number of patients that have seen improvement in these areas when they pay attention to spinal health, including regular adjustments and being consistent with their core exercises.  And since bladder and bowel problems are the most frequent issues that require admittance to a nursing-home facility, it behooves all of us to pay attention to the maintainance required.  Core exercises and monthly spinal adjustments are effective and easy in most cases.  And well worth the time and effort.
