Los Angeles Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Panic disorders are said to affect 2.4 million people each year. For those that have never had an anxiety attack, you should be thankful. It is really a gut-wrenching experience that you are better off not having to deal with. Some individuals are affected by constant unrelenting anxiety which can lead them to become housebound.
This type of severe anxiety is known as agoraphobia. The video testimony below shows how an upper cervical correction can cause profound changes in one's emotional state. Below we will briefly discuss what Upper Cervical Care is and how it can help someone heal from chronic health conditions.
What is Upper Cervical Care?
Our upper cervical chiropractic offices here in Los Angeles have been helping people with chronic health problems for years. While we do not have all the answers for every patient, it has become clear that the upper cervical spine plays a major role in a wide spectrum of health conditions including anxiety and depression.
The upper cervical procedure's goal is to locate spinal misalignments that interfere with the central nervous system. Objective tests are run to determine which spinal level is causing interference.
Once located, precise x-rays are taken of the individual joints of the neck. This allows the doctor to precisely visualize the joint misalignment. Measurements are taken off the joint because each person is built differently, and then used to make a precise, gentle correction.
The correction’s aim is to restore normal biomechanics and to reduce irritation to the spinal cord. Over time the patient is monitored each visit to determine whether they are holding the correction or not. Over time the soft tissue repairs, the spine returns to its normal structure, and the healing of the tissues affected by the irritated nerve tissue follows. Our adage is, “nature needs no help-just no interference”.
