A misaligned body is an adverse body position that can cause stress, tension and pressure to the entire nervous system. The brain stem (base of the brain) is the part that is especially affected. This is very important, because our body shuttles millions of electrical and chemical impulses back and forth from the brain to every cell of our body each day.
Any restriction or distortion of those messages (nerve impulses) can affect every body function. Many of these nerve messages are unconscious such as breathing, digestion, and circulation.
If a spinal misalignment is not corrected, the long term effect of an imbalance is degeneration, which can be alarming. That part of the body serviced by those restricted messages can activate pain signals resulting in mild to severe pain, lowered resistance to illness, behavioral changes, organ dysfunction, loss of mobility in limbs, and ultimately - disease.
The sooner someone with a misalignment issue seeks professional care probably from a chiropractic professional, the higher the likelihood that the degenerative impact will stop.
So basically, to live life at a level of true Wellness your nerve system needs to be communicating the messages from your brain to your body at a 100%. Freeing the pathways of any issues is essential.
At Besso Clinic of Chiropractic, we see patients with everything from carpal tunnel syndrome, child development problems, child sensory disorders, chronic facial pain, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic infections, circulation problems, to constipation ... and that's just the C's. It may seem like the list of conditions which have responded to upper cervical care is endless.
However, if you understand that the nervous system controls everything in the body, then it’s not hard to understand that it could be possible for a condition, like an Atlas Subluxation, to be the root cause of health problems. It can also be the root cause of your tilted head, unlevel shoulders, and tight spastic muscles.
Oh, I just realized I dropped the S word, subluxation, and you may be wondering what a subluxation is. An atlas subluxation is a fancy word for an imbalance due to a misalignment of the top bone in your spine. This is what upper cervical doctors detect and correct.
By restoring alignment using gentle, precise techniques, we can correct issues leading to imbalance. When this happens, a realigned body no longer causes stress to and tension to the nervous systems. Critical body functions resume which leads to an improved quality of life.
Our team at Besso Clinic of Chiropractic will also help you lessen the risks of future misalignment issues. Daily activities pose certain risks but there are ways you can lessen them. This way, you no longer have to worry about tilted heads or uneven shoulders.
