Nerve Interference

What is Nerve Interference?

What is the most important organ in the body?

If you said the brain, you are absolutely correct.

The brain and the rest of the nervous system control and orchestrate every function of your body. Yet how often do we think about it or how our health is affected by its function?

In 16 years as a healthcare provider, it has been my experience that most people only think about their nervous system once it causes noticeable symptoms.

Even then, it is often the last place they look.

It has also been my experience that interference, or stress, to the nervous system is a common occurrence. This should not be surprising given the amount of stress in our modern lifestyles.

Everyone Deserves a Healthy Nervous System

To experience optimal health and function we all need a properly functioning nervous system.

That is why we use advanced testing to assess the health and function of your nervous system in our office. The image below shows a similar scan to the ones we will perform in the office on your first visit. We will study your scans and determine a care plan designed for you to remove the stress we find so that you and your family can experience optimal health and function.

Nervous System Testing

On your initial visit, we’re going to perform comprehensive, safe, and non-invasive neurological testing.

We will review that data with you, explain the results and from there discuss a plan of action to correct any neurological stress and tension we find.

Vertebral Subluxation

Vertebral subluxation is one of the most common and most unrecognized causes of nerve interference.

A vertebral subluxation is a misalignment of the spine that negatively affects the delicate nervous system as it travels through the spinal column. These misalignments often go undetected because pain fibers are vastly outnumbered by motor and sensory nerves. And while no pain may be present, dysfunction often occurs as messages to and from the brain are distorted.

Vertebral subluxation is an alteration of normal spinal position which by the nature of the anatomy of the spinal column, will negatively impact the delicate nervous system tissues that travel through it.

These shifts in spinal structure are quite common and occur regularly throughout a lifetime due to the many stressors we encounter in all stages of early development, childhood and as adults.

When vertebral subluxation occurs, it causes neurological stress which then affects our health and function. Restoring the normal alignment and removing that neurological stress or interference can have a dramatic impact on our health and lives.


Stress comes in many forms and we can each relate to how significantly it affects us.

While there is extensive research on early life stress and the damaging effects of chronic stress on health and quality of life, much of the healthcare community and public have failed to recognize how this excessive stress impacts the structural and neurological integrity of our spine and nervous system.

Brain Changes

Growing research is not only showing how general stress negatively affects the brain, but also specifically how altered spinal alignment and range of motion negatively affect the brain.

In a 2016 paper found in the journal, Neural Plasticity, it was found using fMRI that adjusting vertebral subluxations altered somatosensory processing, particularly in the prefrontal cortex.

Other researchers also using fMRI are finding that vertebral subluxation in the upper neck “can affect or cause neural compromise, and/or some may contribute to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow obstruction as well as arteriovenous compromise.” Of particular importance to note is that correcting the misalignment shows improved venous and cerebrospinal fluid flow.

Chiropractic positively affects the brain.


Chiropractic discovered over 100 years ago that these alterations in normal spinal structure do in fact negatively impact our health and function, that they can be corrected and that maintaining optimal spinal structure throughout a lifetime has positive health benefits.

It’s a simple concept based upon our intricate anatomy.

Like other simple concepts such as eating well, moving our bodies, having a positive attitude and brushing our teeth, chiropractic reaps huge rewards for those who utilize it as a means to correct and remove this serious form of neurological interference.

Getting Checked

To determine if vertebral subluxation may be negatively impacting the health and life of you and and your family, it is critical that you have an examination with a chiropractor specifically trained to locate and correct these imbalances as not all chiropractors receive this specific training.

Our doctors are dedicated to refining their expertise in this very specific area. Know that when you schedule an appointment in our office you will be finding a doctor of chiropractic who is dedicated to subluxation correction.

Schedule an Appointment

Scheduling an appointment is as easy as filling out the short form below to request a preferred day and time time or giving us a call at 619-363-5073.

Once you fill out the form, we will contact you to confirm a date and time, answer any questions and get you set for your initial visit.

We can’t wait to meet you and look forward to you being our next success story!

Improvement in All Areas of Life

We've seen a lot of improvement in his speech and his vocabulary has grown vastly. I'm able to have more conversations with him. He has more control over his body and we're seeing so much improvement in all areas of his life.

Given Her Life Back

In only 4 visits for my daughter, they have given her life back to her. Relieving her completely from debilitating depression for over 10 yrs, anxiety, OCD, and panic attacks that at times kept her from going out.

It is truly a miracle. She is playing music, painting, drawing. She told me tonight she can't ever remember being this happy in her life. I thank God for leading me to Dr. Steve. He may just have saved her life. She has been suicidal for years. She is just 19 yrs old. God bless you Steve for saving my daughter and me from the hell we've been in for so long.

Increased Affection

The increase in affection has been the greatest reward since our son started care. We are so grateful Dr. Steve.

- Tina Kirby


Seizure Free!

We have seen so many changes in Liam since he’s been coming. He went from having up to 60 seizures a day to seizure free.

- Beth Higgins


Kindness, Respect & Patience

Dr. Steve and his staff at the Center for Health and Human Potential have treated our daughter with special needs with total kindness, complete respect, and immeasurable patience.

It has been one of the most comfortable experiences with healthcare, and we would recommend any parent to look into services at CHHP, whether to improve a specific condition or to seek out general health benefits from their approach to chiropractic care.

Improvement with Seizures

Although Dylan still has a long way to go, we have seen significant improvements with his seizures, medication dosages, and trunk control. I feel confident that we will see even more progress as he continues to see Dr. Steve!

- Laura McNamara


More Sociable and Happy

My daughter has come out of her shell. She is more sociable on her own without being prompted to speak. It's a wonderful feeling to see her so happy where before I would have to encourage her to reply to people when spoken to. She is on the safety patrol at school and encourages students K-8 to follow rules. I can't believe she is telling 8th graders to follow rules!
