Neck Pain And Chiropractic

Have you ever tried to balance a 10-15 pound bowling ball on the finger tips of just one hand?

Well that is what your neck (cervical spine) does all day, 24/7/, 365 days a year.

Your neck and shoulder muscles work very hard holding up your head. Your neck, or cervical spine, is made up of seven vertebra that must be in the proper position or relationship to each other for them to work correctly and efficiently. A structural misalignment of even the tiniest amount can cause muscle pain and discomfort, this is one of the main causes of headaches. This misalignment can put pressure, either directly or indirectly, on the nerves exiting the spinal cord at the affected level. Doctors of Chiropractic call this a Subluxation.

Some over-the-counter and prescribed pain relievers might dull the pain, but they ignore the underlying cause!

Chiropractors see this sort of thing all the time. It’s almost routine. Chiropractic care has a long history of producing excellent benefits with those suffering from neck pain. And we do it naturally, without dangerous drugs or risky, dangerous, surgery.

Chiropractors get great results with many types of neck pain.

Headaches and Chiropractic.

Headaches are common, about 1 in 6 (45 million) Americans suffer from chronic headaches, but they’re not normal.

We live in a world where we want it now, hence the culture on drugs we live in. Many people with headaches will take some kind of anti-inflammatory to help relieve their suffering and many times it works – at least for a while. You need to ask yourself what is causing the inflammation in the first place? Chiropractors look for the underlying cause of your headache.

One of the most  common causes of headaches is from spinal bones in the neck that have lost their normal position and are not supporting your head properly . These misalignment’s are called subluxations  and they affect nerves, muscles and even the blood supply to your head.

A thorough Chiropractic examination locates subluxations that could be causing your headaches. If subluxations are present, you’re likely to benefit from Chiropractic spinal adjustments.

Optimal Health with Little or No Medication. Part 2.

To recap, in part one I discussed the dangers of medically prescribed drugs and the dangers of side effects.

In this post I will be discussing the role of chiropractic care in achieving optimal health.

Chiropractic is based on the science that shows that our nervous system controls the function of every cell, tissue, organ and system of our body. Our nervous system consists of your brain, spinal cord, and millions of nerves. Many everyday activities can cause the spinal bones to lose their normal position or motion causing nervous system dysfunction. Doctors of Chiropractic call this nervous system dysfunction “Vertebral Subluxation Complex” or Subluxation for short. The Chiropractic approach to optimal health is to examine your spine for subluxation and if one is found administer a gentle spinal adjustment. A spinal adjustment helps to restore normal position and motion to the bones of your spine but, more importantly improves the communication (nervous) system. With a nervous system that is working properly your body is better able to adapt to your daily life; better able to fight off a bacterial or viral infection, better able to heal itself, better able to turn the food you eat into a healthy you and better able to self regulate itself.

Without normal nerve supply, affected organs and tissue is more susceptible to disease, often producing the symptoms of pain ill health. Headaches and low back pain can be traced to back to spinal malfunction and nervous system dysfunction. Doctors of Chiropractic are the only specialist extensively educated and trained in the detection, reduction and prevention of nervous system interference. Your doctor will use specific chiropractic adjustments to return malfunctioning spinal bones to their proper motion and position, reducing nervous system interference.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments are safer than dangerous and risky back surgery, muscle relaxers and even aspirin. Chiropractic adjustments are so safe that even newborn babies can receive spinal adjustments when necessary.

It doesn’t matter what type of doctor you you consult, remember doctors don’t heal, only your body can heal itself and it can do that better without a subluxation (nervous system dysfunction). The chiropractic approach to optimal health is to remove the interferences to your inborn healing ability.

Everyone with a spine needs regular, minimum of 2 per month, chiropractic exams and adjustments when necessary to maintain good spinal health, remember our nerves are the communication system in our bodies. If the communication system is not working properly how can anything else work properly? That’s right it doesn’t.

Chiropractic makes sense. It’s scientific. It’s only provided by well educated doctors. It’s natural. Most importantly  it works to correct the underlying cause(s) of your problem and it works.

In my next post I will discuss the importance of good nutrition and it’s role in optimal health.
