Adjusting for Peak Performance

The nervous system is constantly scanning the body and the environment to keep us adapting to life. Powerful nerve centers in the brain stem operate as our “auto-pilot,” managing most basic life functions from heart rate and blood pressure to moods, sleep and even our balance with gravity! Research and clinical experience reveals how critical this area of the spine is in relation to overall health. Correcting dysfunction in the brain stem optimizes our body’s ability to pursue peak performance in work and at play. Join Nate Steele, DC a NUCCA chiropractor for this informative talk.
