Proper Alignment

When The First One Drops …

The body is an intelligent organism that depends on a dynamic arrangement of tension, levers, hinges and balance to maintain function. If one of these components is compromised, the body compensates by changing the structure. This change also stresses the normal anatomy to which the body must adapt. Adaptations in anatomy may alter your posture and can create unstable areas in the spine. The unstable areas in the spine may cause a person to be prone to back pain and disc problems as well as functional deficiencies. Like a row of dominos – when the first one drops, the rest will follow.

The cervical spine is susceptible to various forces that cause the vertebrae to lose their proper structural position. These types of traumas include macro trauma, such as auto accident/whiplash, sports injuries, and falls; repetitive or micro-trauma, such as work tasks and poor postural habits; and early development trauma, which includes childhood falls and even the birth process.

Vertebral subluxations cause nerve interference which diminishes the inherent healing potential of the human body. Subluxations have been documented to cause a variety of health problems, including headaches, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, TMJ, sinus infections, ear infections, vertigo, allergies, asthma, thyroid conditions, sinusitis, arm pain, shoulder pain, hormonal imbalance, insomnia, fibromyalgia, and many others.

Doctors of Chiropractic detect and correct vertebral subluxations by physically adjusting the spine to restore normal spinal function and balance which allows the nervous system to send and receive information. This allows the inherent healing potential of the body to best express itself.
