Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is a healthcare profession that uses drug-free and surgery-free methods to diagnose and treat neuromuscular stresses through the use of the Advanced Orthogonal Approach (AOA). The AOA is a painless adjustment of the spine through the use of sonic sound waves.
Upper cervical chiropractic care relieves treated individuals from stresses and pains. A chiropractor is a healthcare professional that performs chiropractic sessions. The basic conditions they help provide relief for are neck pain, spine strain, migraine/headache, and lower back pain. Upper Cervical can also help alleviate symptoms of other more serious conditions such as TMJ, scoliosis, and Fibromyalgia. They can also aid in the recovery of accident victims.
Stress can be caused by a hectic work schedule, change in your environment, war, loud noises, anxiety, or sickness.
Stress can either cause a positive reaction which makes some people work harder on a task/job or negative reaction by an accumulative effect on the body. Negative effects of stress can cause tension to build up within the body’s muscles, joints, and tendons, which in turn affects the vertebrae in your spine. It can simply be said that stress is bad for the mind and body of an individual.
How Upper Cervical Reduces Stress
Spinal Subluxations is a misalignment of the spine which can lead to pain or discomfort, limited mobility, headaches or migraines, or more serious issues such as illness. An upper cervical chiropractor conducts spinal adjustments which return your vertebrae to its proper positioning thereby improving nerve function and removing the tension (which is caused by stress) from your spine and surrounding muscles.
Upper cervical chiropractors may also operate in a soothing and serene environment, so patients can be more relaxed during treatment sessions. They do this so that the body can easily be worked on. They may play the patients’ favorite music just to set the atmosphere right or ask the patient to sit in a comfortable position.
An upper cervical chiropractor will also help his patients to work on bettering their posture. A wrong sitting posture can lead to tension around the neck and the spine. This added stress leads to severe lower back pain and neck stiffness.
Other de-stressing options may also be presented by an upper cervical chiropractor. The goal is to help you live a healthier and stronger lifestyle in order to reduce the stress and strain on your neck and back.
