The negative effects of immobilization (lack of proper motion) in the spine begin as soon as four hours after injury! The direct effects of deconditioning on the nervous system include decreased proprioception (ultimately affecting balance and joint coordination) and a decrease in central neuromotor control of movement and posture. Chiropractic adjustments to restore mobility and alignment of the spine help keep the nervous system functioning properly.
