Postural Adjustments are performed with drop table, hand-held instrument, or manual procedures, and benefit the body in many ways. They elicit a barrage of nerve stimulus which resets your nervous system regulation of postural muscle balance. This barrage of nerve stimulus also performs a function called pain-gating, similar to pinching yourself to distract the brain from the pain of stubbing your toe. Postural adjustments often release the restrictions of old scar tissue to mechanically allow the posture to return to normal. Finally, postural adjustments release endorphins, your body’s natural pain killer.
It is important to understand that the closer the human body is to its normal alignment, the better it will perform.
