Chronic Pain takes its toll on the affected individual, on their relationships, in the workplace – in literally affects every aspect of a person’s life. Neck pain, upper back pain and lower back pain can rob you of your life and doing things that you once enjoyed.
And what do you do when you’re in pain? You do anything to reduce the pain, to make it go away, to stop it – even briefly – so that you can get some rest. Maybe you’ve tried over-the-counter or prescription pain relievers. Maybe you’ve been to every type of health care professional under the sun – including a neurologist, an internist, even a pain management specialist. And still, the pain persists. Some days you wish that you could just go to sleep for a while.
That’s when it’s time to look at a different approach
An approach that doesn’t rely on drugs or surgeries to help you feel better, only temporarily. In fact, you help you feel better (and no, that was not a typo)! How? By harnessing your body’s own abilities.
Messages from your brain travel out to every part of your body through your brain stem – which is at the base of your skull. Your nervous system is in fact, like the master control center of you! You could say that you live your entire life through your nervous system, so it’s very important to keep it in top operating condition so you can stay healthy.
What happens when your nervous system doesn’t work properly? Well, it may take a while, but eventually your body will start to break down and you will experience disease in the body part that is affected by any nerve type of nerve interference.
What causes nerve interference? Well, it usually occurs as the result of some type of trauma to the upper cervical spine (neck region), specifically in the first vertebra, the atlas. This trauma may be the result of an accident or injury, such as an automobile accident or a fall down the stairs when you were two years old. It may have even resulted from the birth process, which there is a great deal of twisting and pulling exerted on a very fragile upper cervical spine!
Any type of trauma can cause your atlas to shift out of place, pressing on nerves as they pass through it on their way out to the body. It can take years for this nerve interference to produce the type of chronic pain that you now experience, and in addition to chronic pain, many other types of conditions can result.
Upper Cervical Care
Upper Cervical care is an all-natural health care approach that looks to address the cause of your chronic pain – the nerve interference that was caused when your atlas shifted out of place. It doesn’t just treat symptoms with medications that can have some very serious side effects.
Upper Cervical doctors receive specific training to locate, correct and remove nerve interference, by gently moving your atlas back into its correct position, in an effort to alleviate your chronic pain, wherever it is occurring – without drugs! Once the interference is removed, proper nerve function returns, re-establishing the vital communication links between your brain and your body. Then it’s “all systems go” once again!
