Back Specialist Los Angeles-Upper Cervical Blair Care
Most people have at least a basic understanding of how the nervous system works - it is made up of the brain, the spinal cord, cranial nerves, and associated spinal nerves. The nervous system is the superhighway that carries communications to and from the brain and the body.
These messages tell each and every cell in your body what to do and when to do it. All signals travel through the spinal cord and then into the branching nerves that course through the body. When these signals are interrupted or damaged a variety of symptoms can present themselves, the most common being a pain.
Many back specialists in Los Angeles work with people who complain about pain, stiffness, loss of mobility, numbness, and other symptoms in their back. However, they are treating them with drugs and in some cases surgery. What if you could do something that is non-invasive and drugless that could help?
Often times there is a traumatic injury that causes damage to the spine and sets the stage for pain down the road, even if the injury did not seem that bad at the time. Have you been in a car accident, injured playing a sport, got into a fistfight, been hit by a car, crashed your motorbike, fallen and hit your head, or been in some other accident?
Any of these traumas can seem minor at the time or be recovered from fairly quickly, but these types of injuries can shift the top bone in the neck, called the Atlas Vertebrae. When this happens it results in interference of the normal transmission of information from the brain to the body.
Many Back Specialists Los Angeles do not look for causes but treat effects with drugs. Very few even know of Upper Cervical Chiropractic and what it can do to realign the Atlas and restore optimum health and wellness.
This is why we take this so seriously and work to educate our patients about how they can help their spine heal and how they can prevent future damage from being done with the help of Upper Cervical Chiropractic.
Doctors today focus on the necessity of nutrition, exercise, proper sleep, and relaxation, but they ignore the connection between the Atlas and the rest of the body. Every signal that travels from the brain passes through the spinal cord and could be affected by an ATLAS misalignment.
Even if you are not experiencing symptoms now if you have a misalignment you could have a major flare-up just waiting to happen. The important thing is, whether you are suffering from back pain, other symptoms, or you are currently symptom-free, you need to take care of yourself to stay healthy and taking care of your spine is the best way to do so.
Do not stop looking for an answer to how to correct your symptoms and how to live a happier and healthier life. It is not all in your head and may very well just be 1/4 inch below it! Check out our services and see what Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care can do for you or your loved one today.
