Nerve Stress: The Silent Killer

The nervous system is responsible for every function in our body. From waking up in the morning to walking, talking, breathing, digestion, immune function and going to bed. Your nerves travel from the brain, down into the spinal cord, branching out into organs and limbs throughout the body to every tissue and cell. Misalignments in your spine due to injuries, poor postural, sleeping and sitting improperly, can place abnormal stresses that can shift the vertebrae out of place. These shifts and imbalances can pull on these delicate nerves and exert pressure reducing energy from reaching its intended destination. Chiropractors call this “Nerve Interference," a dangerous and usually silent condition with health altering side effects if it is left uncorrected.  Over time if organs don’t receive proper nerve supply they are prone to weakness and disease. Most organs don’t have pain receptors as sensitive like the skin and muscles, so usually the...

Pregnancy Unbalanced Pelvis Correction

Pregnancy Unbalanced Pelvis Correction
Typically, an expecting mother gains 25-30 pounds her pregnancy. This added weight can not only cause discomfort in the lower back but can cause pain throughout the entire lower body by putting pressure on the spine, specifically the sciatic nerve. This new weight can also cause the pelvis to be misaligned, which leaves less room for the baby to develop, and assume the correct position for birth. And unbalanced pelvis could result in a breech birth, which could potentially lead to a C-section if the baby is born in a hospital setting.

By using gentle manipulations and adjustments chiropractors can assist with pain associated from protruding abdomens and increased spinal curvature, pelvic changes, and posture adaptations. This could help to eliminate symptoms that frequently characterize pregnancy; like nausea and back pain,...

The science of chiropractic relies on the notion that the body can properly function only if the spine is unobstructed, and the nerve supply to the rest of the body remains constant. Of course, injuries from athletic performance can cause subluxations which can create further issues, like chronic pain, with an athlete’s health later on. Even after medical treatment like surgery, a subluxation is not totally eliminated, which is where chiropractic care can help. Athletic Performance and Chiropractic Care Athletes may either receive acute traumatic injuries or injury from repetitive overuse. Acute traumatic injuries usually occur in most contact sports, and can affect a player after being hit by an unseen force or sudden impact. Repetitive overuse injuries occur after repeating a series of movements over time, like swinging a golf club. Almost every athletic workout results in some sort of micro-injury, as the body is broken down in order to...
