Health Conditions and Chiropractic

To put it simply, what does Cell replication, gene expression, organ function, programmed cell death, hormone production, our sense of spacial awareness, healing, immune and mental health all have in common? 

They are all controlled by the nervous system.

The nervous system (brainstem, spinal cord and nerves) is what controls all aspects of health. Our health is dependent on the proper function of our nervous system.  A Chiropractor focuses on spinal and nerve function.

The nervous system is the key in getting to the root cause f body malfunction and illness

How will Upper Cervical Care affect me?

Upper cervical care (UCC) focuses on restoring brain to body communication. Making sure the nervous system is working optimally. Specifically the Autonomic nervous system.

The question is what can cause harm to our nervous system. 

It’s called a Vertebral Subluxation. When the bones of the spine, specifically  the first two bones of the spine the Atlas (C1) and Axis (C2), shift, twist or jerk out of normal or right position, producing a "kink". These bones get stuck and remain in that abnormal position in relation to the other bones immediately above or below it. 

A VERTEBRAL SUBLUXATION IS INITIALLY CAUSED BY ANY PHYSICAL TRAUMA OR INJURY. Including but not limited to, Auto accidents (major or minor fender benders) slip and falls, sports injuries, concussions, neck whiplash and or any head, shoulder or spinal trauma. Emotional and chemical trauma also play a role.

Once the Subluxation is present it can cause moderate to severe pressure and irritation to the spinal cord and interferes with nerve signaling, causing malfunction at a cellular level. 

Due to the bio-mechanics of the spine this Subluxation causes compensatory misalignments all the way down the spine even to the pelvis and hip joints. Leading to what is called body imbalance. A lot of the structural issues such as, headaches, neck pain, mid to low back pain,  shoulder pain, hip pain, knee pain and feet pain are caused by this body imbalance. 

This body imbalance causes the weight of our head to be thrown off the center of gravity, causing brain imbalance. Our body tries to bring the head back to the center of gravity by causing the spine to shift, twist and cause muscles to contract all the way down the spine. 

Therefore, removing Vertebral Subluxations through Spinal corrections affect the function of our entire bodies. Making  our bodies heal more efficiently and function at it's optimum.

If you or someone you know deal with the symptoms above, or may have suffered previous trauma, you may have a Subluxation present.
