Migraines

Our brain was designed without pain sensing fibers. But the blood vessels that provide nutrition to the cells that make up the nervous system are completely surrounded with pain fibers. Modern science and medicine understands this. Hence why medication is designed to shrink the size of the blood vessels in the body to reduce the swelling that irritates the pain fibers that cause a headache.But what happens if you continue to get these headaches? Even after you tried medication? According to the Mayo Clinic, headaches are caused by changes in the brainstem – the circuit breaker to our nervous system. If you suffer from headaches, chances are the circuit is blown or turned off and if we can turn it on, then voila! Your headaches go away.

 

Neck Pain

When it comes to neck pain, our approach is very different than most healthcare providers. Getting rid of the pain is not our job; figuring out WHY you are in pain is our primary focus in figuring out how to get rid of chronic pain in the neck area. Often times medications such as painkillers, and muscle relaxers will get rid of pain, but that would be like putting duct tape over a leaky pipe. It gets rid of pain symptoms while
the “root cause” is still present. Most often times what we find when it comes to neck pain is that there are two “root causes” that cause neck pain: 1. The top two bones in the neck are misaligned, or not moving correctly. 2. This misalignment has caused a nervous system interference, or malfunction that has hindered the bodies ability to heal. When both of these things are present long enough the result often times is pain, a signal going off in our body that something is wrong.

 

Numbness

Numbness, tingling, and weakness are all indicators that the nervous system is not functioning properly in a particular area. Whether it be the face, hands, feet, legs, or arms, when severe enough it can leave a person dysfunctional, hopeless, and in severe pain. Surgery and other highly invasive procedures should be a last resort that is used when other lesser invasive procedures have been exhausted. This is where we come in. By locating these areas of nervous system interference, and keeping them removed over a long enough period of time, we can ensure not only that the tingling, numbness, and weakness goes away and stays away, but we also can make sure the muscle, organ, or tissue the nerve goes to will not become an issue down the road.

 

Sleep Issues & Insomnia

One of the many functions of the brainstem is control the sweep/wake cycle that occurs within our bodies. Have you ever wondered how your body just turns the switch off to initiate deep sleep, and then turn back on and wake us up when it’s time to get up? This is something that occurs without us ever thinking about it. If there is a misalignment of one or more of the top two bones in the neck that house the brainstem, it can place abnormal pressure to the brainstem and cause it to malfunction. Signs that this is could be occurring are difficulty in initiating sleep, difficulty in remaining asleep, difficulty in getting quality sleep, or any other type of sleep disturbance. Before you jump to Ambien, Lunesta, or some other extremely potent drug let us see if you are a candidate that could benefit from upper cervical specific chiropractic care!

 

Fatigue & Energy Levels

Chronic fatigue and low energy levels is a topic that millions of Americans a year try to get an answer for on a day to day basis. Which has allowed for companies like Starbucks, 5-Hour Energy, Energy Drinks, and the like to become a billion dollar industry. Imagine the amount of money you could save a year by not needing any of these products because you have plenty of energy on a daily basis naturally. By having a strong nervous system that is regulating hormones, and other chemicals in your body quickly and effectively, we are able to
provide this solution for our patients. If you have fatigue, chances are your nervous system dimmer switch is half on, we want to crank it all the way up, and provide you with energy that sustains all day long!
 

Back & Leg Pain

Back pain is in the top three leading causes of missed days of work in the U.S. While there are many approaches out there to solving this issue, we believe we offer the most least invasive, effective approach to not only getting rid of our patient’s back pain, but keeping it gone. If you are suffering from chronic, long-term pain that is consistently creeping its ugly head into your life, it’s because your body is not healing. Healing is something that is facilitated through the nervous system, the cells get damaged they communicate to the brain that there is damage, and the brain responds by sending the cavalry to heal and repair. If this communication between the cells damaged, and the brain, and vice versa, 100% proper healing cannot take place. By restoring these communication lines within your body we can appreciate proper healing in your body that continues to happen even after you leave our office!

Don’t let these conditions keep you from living an elevated life.
