Neck pain due to Spinal Misalignments?
Although the spinal column is a sturdy structure, individual vertebrae can become misplaced. When that happens, it's called a vertebral subluxation. One of the most common causes of neck pain. Yet, many everyday activities can result in Spinal Misalignment (subluxation) and neck pain as well. Taking part in sports, and even sitting for prolonged periods at a desk can all put stress on the vertebrae.
This is type of neck pain that chiroprctic care is most effective.Chiropractic can take care misalignments by manipulation or Chiropractic Adjustments
Patients with chronic Neck pain treated by chiropractors showed greater improvement and satisfaction at one month than patients treated by family physicians. Satisfaction scores were higher for chiropracticpatients. A higher proportion of chiropracticpatients (56 percent vs. 13 percent) reported that theirl neck pain was better or much better, whereasnearly one-third of medical patients reported theirlow-back pain was worse or much worse.” – Nyiendo et al (2000), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics
In a Randomized controlled trial, 183 patients with neck pain were randomly allocated to manual therapy (spinal mobilization), physiotherapy (mainly exercise) or general practitioner care (counseling, education and drugs) in a 52-week study. The clinical outcomes measures showed that manual therapy resulted in faster recovery than physiotherapy and general practitioner care. Moreover, total costs of the manual therapy-treated patients were about one-third of the costs of physiotherapy or general practitioner care.
The spinal cord is actually an extension of the brain, sending nerve energy to control and to coordinate the function of every organ, system and cell in the body. When there are interference from brain cells to tissue cells develops, the beginning stages of DIS-ease start. The spine consists of 24 freely moveable bones. They protect over 3000,000 nerves that emit between each vertebrae through small holes. Any small misalignment can block nerve energy, just as a rheostat will cut down the energy to a light bulb. Symptoms gradually start to develop and the patient don't know why he has them.
For instance, misalignment (subluxation) in the neck region can disturb nerve function, resulting in headache, nervousness, insomnia, high blood pressure, chronic tiredness, dizziness, sinus trouble, eye trouble, ear trouble, neuritis, chronic cough, sore throat, stiff neck, pain in the upper arms or bursitis. Many patients take all kinds of medication for these symptoms, not realizing the cause of their problem is in the spine and neck.
Misalignment (subluxation) in the mid-back can disturb nerve function, resulting in asthma and difficult breathing, functional heart conditions, gall bladder conditions, poor circulation, arthritis, stomach trouble, indigestion, heartburn and gastritis, kidney trouble, chronic tiredness, skin conditions and gas pain.
Why live with your condition, treating the symptom while the cause of your problem is left untreated? The longer the cause is untreated, the symptoms soon lead to full blown disease of the organs and tissue involved.
Your health is too important to neglect. The power that made the body heals the body. Everyday we treat patients that regain their health within a few months and even weeks
