Upper cervical care of Southern California…. we are an upper cervical practice that gently balances the the spine to free up the nervous
system in order to restore health and communication with the rest of the body.
The single most important factor in any relationship is good communication. Whether it be a relationship, car, house or BODY…
good communication is crucial to the well being of everything in life. The brain and spinal cord(the central nervous system),
is the master controller of the body. If communication is broken down between the brain and the body or from the body to the brain, we have problems. If your body cannot self-heal and self regulate, this is the beginning of trouble or dis-ease within the body. Initially this will manifest as a symptom in the body or eventually a disease process within the body.
Where does the break down of the body begin? Birth is very traumatic on a babies head and neck. During the first few years of life when we are learning to walk we fall hundreds of times. Small accidents, injuries such as falling off a bike or sporting injuries cause the body to misalign and shift off it’s center of gravity.
The body is extremely resilient and will always attempt to compensate and adapt to being thrown off. When the center of gravity of the head moves off the center of gravity of the pelvis(the base of support for the body), there are a whole cascade of reactions that occurs as a result of this. The head moves off center,
the neck will shift to counter balance the weight of the head. There will be spasm of muscle on one side of the body more than the other, which will create a high and low hip, a long and short leg, then the body will begin to carry more weight on one side of the body more than the other. When all of this happens,
neurological pressure happens in different areas of the spine. Once this occurs, the break down of communication between the brain and the body, the body and the brain begins. This is beginning of malfunction or dis-ease in the system. Over a period of time, this will eventually manifest as disease in the person.
At upper cervical care of Southern California, patients come in with a wide variety of symptoms such as neck pain, low back pain, middle back pain, knee issues, hip issues, sciatica, ADD, ADHD, epilepsy, post-concussion syndrome, hormone disorders, diabetes, constipation, dementia, Alzheimer’s, ear infections,
blood pressure issues, migraines, headaches, joint pain, arthritis, sporting injuries, scoliosis, torticollis(wry neck), menstrual issues, infertility, TMJ, Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), seizures, accidents and injuries.
The missing link…. unfortunately in our society, often the first time the nervous system is evaluated, is after a severe accident when there may be paralysis involved or severe injury. The other time it is evaluated is when there is the suspicion of Alzheimer’s or dementia. Your brain and spinal cord control EVERY other system of your body.
Without a proper functioning nervous system, nothing else in the body functions to it’s optimal potential. It is the FOUNDATION to health and wellness. Unfortunately, by the time it is first evaluated, it is often 50-70 years too late.
