|Have you ever thought it
curious that despite the best medical treatment, and/or precautionary
measures such as diet, exercise and screening tests, you seem to catch
every bug making the rounds...
Or maybe its the babys colic and chronic crying that wont
seem to go away or your childs embarrassment from accidental
bedwetting that is unrelenting.
|feel out of balance,
twisted or clumsy
|continue to suffer
from recurrent infections
|ear, balance or jaw
or bowel dysfunction
|not to mention, hip,
knee or back pain
Or even more subtle, youve just noticed your posture changing.
The head tilting slightly; uneven shoulders; a short leg when lying
down; uneven hips, unequal hem(s) in clothing; and constantly tight
muscles or a crunching or grinding sound with simple neck movements.
|How can Chiropractic care affect
all of these conditions?
||The upper cervical area
consists of the Occiput, Atlas (1st vertebra or C1), Axis (2nd vertebra
or C2). Chiropractors believe this area to be the most influential
in the nervous system, outside of the brain. Body structure out of
balance is the key sign of spinal problems which can cause or worsen
a number of functional pathological syndromes (diseases).
Since every cell, tissue and organ in your body is interconnected
and controlled by the nervous system, each of these complaints may
actually originate elsewhere in the body. Chiropractors often find
that it shows up as: a misalignment of the upper cervical spine, more
specifically the 1st cervical vertebra, appropriately named the Atlas.
In this case, Atlas does carry the weight of your world your
Simply put, Chiropractors believe that the body has the inborn
ability to heal itself, and this healing is facilitated through a
proper functioning nervous system. Since the upper cervical spine
is the most moveable region in the spine, it is also the most likely
to become misaligned, thereby compromising this vital nerve function.
In addition, anatomically the origin of every nerve exiting into the
body from the spinal cord passes through the Atlas vertebra.
When this misalignment occurs, then a skillful adjustment of the Atlas
vertebra may be needed. Chiropractors use spinal adjustment techniques
to restore proper spinal & body function, promoting wellbeing.

Please note: there are no extensive scientific
trials showing the chiropractic cures any named disease.
There is, however, a century of clinical evidence showing that chiropractic
care has helped many people and is based on a sound, structured
and disciplined approach founded in accredited university education.
Also note that not all conditions will respond to adjusting structural
balance with chiropractic care alone.
