Back Pain Old Town Chicago IL SolutionsIn our office, we strive to not only help you get well but to stay well.  The best way for us to achieve this is by simply explaining the “how” and “why” of how our bodies work and what we can do to maintain the results that we can help you achieve.

The Fuse Box

When an appliance in a home is not working properly, it could potentially short-circuit and cause a fire that would burn down the entire house. But thankfully, the appliance has been hardwired with a mechanism that when there is too much ‘charge’ detected; a signal is sent back to a connection where the entire power supply to the house is located. This location is known as the fuse box.

The fuse box by design will “blow a fuse” or simply shut off the power to the appliance and everything on that circuit supply. Therefore, no fire results and the house remains safe.

If you can understand this simple analogy, you can also understand how the most complex system in how your body works – your central nervous system.

The Electrical Hub

Follow along for a second. In our previous example, the power supply is your brain, the house is your body, the fuse box and power points are your nervous system and the appliances in the house are all the other organs.

When a device is not working properly in your home, there is always a reason. The first obvious one is that the there is a problem with the power supply – either the power point is not turned on, or in fact, the fuse is still blown from a previous problem! The second is that there is some problem with the appliance itself.

Now, back to our body – when a part of it is not properly functioning what is our first thought? Do you ever think about the connection or power supply?
