Premier Treatment For Fibromyalgia In Los Angeles | Dr. Drew Hall Discusses Fibromyalgia And Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Los Angeles

Recently we taped about 15 different videos relating the Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic procedure and various common chronic health problems. In this blog we would like to discuss fibromyalgia and how it relates to fibromyalgiaupper neck injury.  In the middle of this article we embedded a 5 minute video which overviews the upper cervical spine’s role in causing and treating fibromyalgia syndrome.  In our Los Angeles offices we have seen over 8500 patients with various health conditions. Fibromyalgia  is a  common condition we see and have found upper cervical care to be very successful in helping these patients recover their health. Upper Cervical Practitioners hypothesize based on their success in addressing fibromylagia, that the misalignment of C-1 (atlas) is blocking the communication various parts of the body and thereby affecting the body’s own ability to correct the problem.

 

The Upper Neck Is Vulnerable To Injury

The upper neck is a vulnerable junction of the spine because the bio-mechanical relationship. The head weighs 10-12 pounds and  rests on a two ounce bone called the atlas.  In the following video Dr Hall discusses this anatomical consideration and how it can impact the central nervous system causing chronic health problems. Have a listen to this short video discussing fibromyalgia and Upper Cervical Care:

The Goal Of Upper Cervical Care

The goal of upper cervical care is to correct atlas and axis misalignments.  Upper cervical doctors run objective neurological test to determine whether or not a person has an upper neck misalignment. Once located precise x-rays are taken to determine direction of the misalignment and the angle of the joints that are involved. This information is then used to make precise correction to the atlas or axis. Once corrected the patient is monitored over time to make sure they are maintaining the correction. If the correction has misaligned again another correction is made.  If  the tests indicate it is in alignment no correction is made on that visit. While the correction is maintained is when healing accrues. We hope that his blog has been helpful and informative and leads those who suffer in the direction of healing!
