Each Decision We make in Life Either Promotes Health or Disease

We are not suggesting that you become obsessive-compulsive about every single decision you make but we are presenting the idea that the more good choices you make regarding the things you eat, how much exercise you get, how much sleep you have and how often you have your spine checked will play a large role in your health. 

Most in the public have heard of these pillars of health, but most do not know that having your spine checked regularly can promote health. Here is why: Your spine houses the central nervous system. At the top of the neck the skull rest on a two-ounce bone called the atlas.

 Because the head weighs 10-12 pounds this area of the spine is the weakest and most susceptible to injury. When injury occurs in the neck it can cause irritation and interference to the central nervous system. This can have far-reaching effects on your health. 

Many people do not know that they have spinal misalignments because many times they can be painless. Only 10 percent of the nerve tracts carry pain signals. Even if you do not feel sick you can still benefit by having your upper cervical spine checked to see if you are carrying nerve irritation or not.



Do you Need Wellness Care in Los Angeles

Dorland's Medical Dictionary defines Health as 'a condition of optimum physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being - not merely the absence of disease or infirmities'. Webster's Medical Dictionary states that Health is 'the state of being sound in body or mind', and 'freedom from physical disease and pain.

Health can be defined as the body functioning optimally rather than just feeling good. You can feel ill one day and the next recover however if your nervous system is interfered with by spinal misalignments then you are not functioning as well as you could be. Regular visits to an upper cervical chiropractor can help maintain proper spine mobility and ultimately allow you to function at your full potential.

 People who are under regular upper cervical chiropractic care find that they have more energy, better sleep, less colds, better cognitive function and they handle the stresses of life with more ease. Because the central nervous system is the seat of control for ALL body function correction of spinal misalignment can impact the body positively in any area. 

The brain-stem located inside of the atlas(c-1) and axis(c-2) is responsible for controlling heart function, blood pressure control, muscle tone regulation, respiratory function, sleep and all the other functions that happen automatically that you do not think about.



Add Upper Cervical Chiropractic Visits Into Your Wellness Plan

Upper Cervical chiropractors run objective neurological tests to determine whether cord irritation exists in the upper cervical spine. Once it is determined that there is a problem affecting the brain stem precise articular(joint) X-rays are taken to determine exactly what direction the misalignment has displaced. Angles are then measured off the problem joints and a precision spinal correction is made. No cracking, popping, or pulling of the neck is done during the correction. It is precise, gentle, and painless. 

Following the spinal correction, the patient rests in a " recuperation " room to allow the body to relax and " regain" control of its proper spinal position. Follow up care is necessary to ensure progress is accruing. Each visit objective tests are done to determine whether another spinal correction is necessary or not.

Over time as the adjustment holds healing occurs throughout the body. Our adage in upper cervical circles is, " nature needs no help just no interference"

"Upper Cervical practitioners hypothesize based on their success in addressing many health conditions that the misalignment of the atlas is blocking communication to various parts of the body and thereby affecting the body’s own ability to correct the problem. “
