Can Corrections In The Upper Cervical Spine Help Relieve Chronic Pain?  | Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Los Angeles, California

Chronic Pain is a widespread problem throughout populations in the industrialized world.  "June 29, 2011 -- More than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain at a cost of around $600 billion a year in medical treatments and lost productivity, according to a report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM)" That is a staggering number when you think about it.

In this article we would like to discuss one of the major causes of chronic pain. An article that discussed all sources of pain would be voluminous so we will narrow our discussion down to pain that is associated with RSD. Unfortunately our current health care paradigm is mechanistic in its approach. All too often mainstream medicine is looking at secondary and tertiary causes of pain and disease.  The treatment of pain is done with strong pain killing medications ignoring what may be the underlying causes.

What Are The Symptoms Of RSD?

Pain areas: in the nerves, arms or legs, back, foot, or hands

Pain types: can be chronic

Muscular: rhythmic muscle contractions, loss of muscle, or muscle spasms

Sensory: pins and needles, sensitivity to pain, or uncomfortable tingling and burning

Whole body: nervous system dysfunction or sweating

 

Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic And Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)

In October of 2014, Dr. Tom Forest, Hubbard and Milman D.C. published a case study indicating that RSD, a regional pain syndrome , recovered following Blair Upper Cervical Care.  The patient was a 10-year-old boy suffering from classic RSD symptoms.

RSD typically develops following a blunt trauma to one of the limbs.  Research published by Hubbard, Forest And Milman showed improvement in the frequency and severity of RSD symptms following a course of Blair Upper Cervical Care.(1)  Blair Upper Cervical is a procedure whose goal is restoring normal bio-mechanics of the Upper Cervical Spine to restore normal nervous system function. While it is not a cure-all it has shown great promise in a multitude of chronic health conditions. (1,2,3,4,5)

 

What Does A Blair Upper Cervical Doctor Do?

Blair Upper Cervical Doctors are trained to locate , and correct subluxations (spinal misalignments in the neck that interfere with the bodies function).  Neurological tests are preformed that determine whether or not the patient has an upper neck subluxation. Once it is determined a subluxation exists, then a precise set of x-rays are taken to determine how your atlas(c-1) or axis(c-2) has misaligned at the joint. Since the bones in the spine meet at joint surfaces and these joint surfaces are mirror images of one another, the doctor can determine exactly how much you have misaligned and what direction.  After this information is determined a precise gentle correction is made to restore normal function.  Each week that passes that the adjustment is holding allows for healing.

Specialty Doctors in both Los Angeles - and Carson work with you to improve specific problem areas, nerve functions, and overall health. The Blair technique, a specialty within Upper Cervical Chiropractic, is what we practice. This technique removes impediments to normal neurological function by correcting spinal misalignments at the cranio-cervical junction (CCJ- head- skull). A specific and non-invasive correction, done after x-rays and a series of tests, precisely corrects misalignments of the neck and upper spine. Muscle strain, neck pain, migraine headaches, sciatica, trigeminal neuralgia, Ménière's disease, insomnia, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and chronic back pain are among the ailments that can be improved or eliminated through this type of care.
