The term Central Nervous System (CNS for short) is frequently mentioned when it comes to people’s state of health. However, many are not fully aware of what it is, or how exactly this crucial, yet complex, system plays a part in our overall wellbeing. The CNS consists of the brain and spinal cord i.e. the organs that allow us to make decisions (the brain) and to relay those decisions to the body (the nerves that run along our spinal cord).
When our body’s receptors (an organ/cell able to respond to external stimulus) detects a stimulus, it instantly sends impulses along sensory neurons to the CNS. The CNS then assimilates this information, sending impulses along motor neurons (nerve cells) to the effectors, resulting in a response. Sometimes this reaction isn’t favourable to the outcome we want (i.e. you get aches, twinges, pain or discomfort). This is where the London Wellness Centre’s Chiropractic services can help you.

For your condition to be classified as sciatica, the nerve pain should be felt beyond the knee joint. Anything that stops short of this and you’re likely to be suffering from referred pain caused by a different part of your back. Perhaps no less painful, but it’s not sciatica.
