Parkinson’s disease is one of the most common degenerative neurological diseases related to the Central Nervous System, which consists of your brain and spinal cord. Parkinson’s disease can be caused by a head injury, stroke, drug use, and even multiple system deterioration. Upper Cervical Chiropractic needs can significantly reduce the progression and symptoms of this disease.
The spine is designed to protect the spinal cord, which is responsible for sending signals through the brain about all communication and functions of the body. When either of the top vertebrae in your neck (known as the Axis and Atlas) are not aligned properly, this can affect these signals being sent properly. By seeking a correction of a subluxation of your vertebrae you can ensure that your neck is aligned properly and is able to send communication through the body without delay. Misalignments can also contribute to Parkinson’s by not allowing cerebrospinal fluid to flow properly.
An Upper Cervical Brandon, we will take accurate x-rays to pinpoint the area(s) of misalignment. This will give us the ability to have a 3-D rendition of your neck and an accurate account
of present alignment issues. We then use these x-rays to formulate a treatment plan that is tailored specifically to each individual patient and their needs. The procedure we use to correct subluxations is very gentle, there is no popping or cracking of your spine. When the Atlas and Axis are in proper alignment, healing is promoted throughout the body because of resumption of proper signals being sent through the spinal cord to the brain and body.
