Basics of NSA

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a combination of low-force Chiropractic

techniques that uses the spinal bones as levers to release tension on the meninges (ligaments that connect the nerves in the spine to the spinal bones) thereby decreasing the traction and rotation tensions on the spinal cord itself, allowing the nervous system to increase its function closer to its natural, balanced and optimum state again.

The Basics

"Sick" Care

The typical approach to our health is to wait until we are sick, then to ask our

doctor to restore our health. This can be costly to both our pocketbook and

long-term health.

"Health" Care

Taking a proactive approach to our health to maintain, protect and increase it, thereby

avoiding illness, is wiser and will save us time and money, and will maintain or vitality.

Network Spinal Analysis is on the fore front of getting our nervous system in a condition

so it will protect our health and create a sense of well-being.

The Core Philosophy of Chiropractic

Innate Intelligence

We all have an innate intelligence which animates us and directs our life and function. It is our core. It

enters our body when we're made and leaves with death. It is our life force. One communication link

between our innate intelligence and our body is the nervous system.

The Nervous System: It Regulates Everything

Our Nervous system - the brain and spinal cord - coordinates and regulates everything about us: our

chemical balance, physical condition, emotional harmony, and the interaction between our internal

world and the world around us.

The Autonomic Nervous System

Our Autonomic (automatic) Nervous System regulates our maintenance functions and organs. It controls our system no matter what we concentrate on: rest, physical activity, or survival. It is divided into two parts:

Parasymathetic Nervous System

Our Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) is most active when we are safe and at rest.

It allows our system to focus on balancing, digesting, and most importantly, repair and

healing. It is less active when we are going strong physical exertion or when we are under

high demands or feel stress.

Symathetic Nervous System -or- The Fight or Flight Response

Our Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) increases its function in gradients depending on

the amount of activity. It has a normal range of function during normal physical activity. Stresses, dangers, or threats to our survival increase its output proportionately. Adrenalin

is increased, muscles are tightened, blood and nerve impulses are decreased in the whole abdominal cavity. With severe stress or danger, our whole system in on high alert.

Stress

In our society, we face a constant stream of stress, so we live in a long-term sympathetic response condition. The changes caused by sympathetic function are important for survival, but high levels over long periods of time (weeks, months, years) have a negative effect on our physiology. That negative effect itself becomes a secondary stress to our System. One o these changes that becomes a negative effects is that soft tissues of the body become less flexible. Over time, there is decreased flexibility of the spinal column. Spinal cord tension

is created. Spinal cord tension decreases nerve function - traction or rotation on the spinal cord (inside the spinal bones) amounting to the weight of one dime decreases the nerve function by 60% in a 20 minute time period.

Anything that interferes with nerve function is called a subluxation. With subluxations,

we are not able to function at full capacity; we have decreased healing capabilities, and there is an interference in our communication with our innate intelligence.

The Solution in Network Spinal Analysis

Network Spinal Analysis (NSA) is a combination of low-force Chiropractic

techniques that uses the spinal bones as levers to release tension on the meninges

(ligaments that connect the nerves in the spine to the spinal bones) thereby decreasing the traction and rotation tensions on the spinal cord itself, allowing the nervous system to

increase its function closer to its natural, balanced and optimum state again.
