It all begins with Nerve System Function & Body Balance
1. Stress and Injuries
Various stresses or injuries throughout our life can overload our system and therefore directly effect the ability of our brain, brain-stem and nerve system to control the body. These events can be big and represent things like slips, falls, & car accidents or then can be small and repetitive like improper sleeping positions, improper lifting or poor posture while sitting at a computer. When these event overload the system it leads to what we can an Upper Cervical Subluxation.
2. Decreased Function
Considering that our nerve system is responsible for regulating everything that happens in our body, subluxation becomes a big thing. This subluxation can disrupt blood flow, cerebrospinal fluid flow & nerve flow which causes the body to grow sick & produce unhealthy cells. At this point our ability to function is being affected on a cellular level.
3. Chronic Health Problems
Over time, if not addressed, improper brain to body communication caused by an Upper Cervical Subluxation can cause or develop into low immune function, chronic asthma or allergies, acid reflux, digestive problems, fatigue, fibromyalgia, seizures…etc.
Effect #1 UC Subluxation
An Upper Cervical Subluxation is a misalignment of the top bone in your neck which disrupts brain to body communication by putting pressure on the brainstem. Without proper communication your body begins to malfunction and the pressure to the brainstem causes an increase in muscle tone on one side of your body stressing the shoulder, spine, hips and knees abnormally.
Effect #2 Improper Healing & Recovery
We are constantly producing new cells & if the cells we are producing are sick cells, then our body and its functions are in the process of slowly breaking down. Our ability to heal & recover from day to day becomes severely diminished and we may start noticing things like neck pain, back pain, sciatica, vertigo or dizziness, headaches, brain fog, ringing in the ears or various other body aches & pains.
Effect #3 Poor Quality of Life
You may presently have no problems or a combination of symptoms and have tried a variety of different approaches (drugs, surgeries, general chiropractors, or alternative health therapies). Having an Upper Cervical Subluxation is no way to Live your Life. If you think you may have signs of a misalignment in the top part of your neck, there is hope!
