Your brain and spinal cord need to know this information, in order to react and direct your joints and muscles where to go…in a fraction of a second…if needed…to avoid injury.
If the joints are misaligned, now they give off abnormal proprioception.
Well, the same thing happens in the spinal bones. If your spinal bones are misaligned, they give off abnormal proprioception. This goes to the Hypothalmus in the brain, which is part of the Hypothalmus-Pituitary-Adrenal axis. This abnormal proprioception causes the adrenals to release Cortisol, Adrenaline, and Noradrenaline. These are stress hormones. This is the Fight or Flight response. This is how subluxations cause the Fight or Flight response
Does Chiropractic make you relax?
Chiropractic decreases the stress response, as explained above. Chiropractic also increases your relaxation state, increasing your Seratonin and Melatonin hormones (your Parasympathetic Nervous System is the part of the nervous system that lets you relax)
So, by restoring the proprioception (which Chiropractic does), you actually decrease the Fight or Flight state and increase your Relaxation state.
Chiropractic has been proven to decrease the fight or flight response, and increase the parasympathetic response (increase the relaxation hormones).

Almost every child labelled ADHD has a fight or flight dominated nervous system. So by halting the stress response and increasing the relaxation response, Chiropractic helps with ADHD and ADD
