“Typically, you either won’t have a problem, or your part will continue to heal once you release the power back to it,” Goss said.
A healthy spine maintains three flowing curves from the neck, mid-back and lower back. Those curves mean no stress or strain on the spinal cord letting the brain efficiently communicate with the nervous system.
Life events displace the spinal bones thereby placing strenuous pressure on a given nerve feeding a vital body part, according to Goss.
“Sometimes that results in pain and sometimes it doesn’t,” she said. “You only feel 10 percent of your nervous system. By the time you have pain, you could have a tremendous problem in the 90 percent you don’t feel.”
