It’s a fact: when the curve in your neck is reversed, things can go awry fast. A patient may experience all kinds of health concerns as this will ultimately affect the alignment of the rest of their spine, creating interference in the nervous system.
Think of a water hose – when the hose itself becomes kinked, the flow of water is no longer allowed to flow correctly. This is the perfect analogy for how the communication that occurs between the body and the brain is substantially diminished when spinal cord interference occurs.
Here are a few reasons why good neck curvature is vital to your overall health and well-being:
Better Function of All Bodily Systems
The curves in the spine act similar to a shock absorber. If you’ve ever owned a car that needed new shock absorbers, you’ll surely know the feeling of the force from a bumpy road, which is transferred up through the vehicle.
Sadly, the same works for those who have lost their cervical curve, as forces such as trauma, poor posture, and gravity will allow the entire body to experience more damage.
Because the vertebral column acts as the protective shield for your spinal column, as well as for all of the nerves that are housed within it, any small shift in the alignment of the vertebrae or the spacing of the vertebra can result in health complications.
Lower The Risk of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis in the neck may appear as stiffness in the neck, thinning of the discs, and bone spurs.
Maintaining the proper neck curvature will prevent or slow down the degeneration process, which will allow for a lifetime of improved health and mobility.
Feeling Your Best
Oftentimes, when the curve in the neck is reversed or lost, the surrounding muscles and ligaments become inflamed, damaged or irritated, resulting in tension or pain.
It is quite common for those with a reverse curve to suffer from neck and shoulder pain, insomnia, chronic fatigue, and migraine headaches. Thus, proper neck curvature can solve most of these issues outright.
The Body Heals From The Inside Out
You’ve just learned that the spinal cord and brain control each function in the body, and that a misalignment anywhere in the spine has the possibility to manifest a myriad of health conditions or symptoms.
Many of the patients we treat at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia come in exhausted and frustrated because their medications were ineffective and their condition was not subsiding as a result.
This is because the purpose of medication is not to remove the cause of the health problem, but to simply make the problem more manageable. After all , medication doesn’t have the ability to remove nervous system interference.
Medication attempts (and fails) to heal from the outside in, while Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care heals from the inside out. Our experts have the ability to remove the cause of your health concern because we can effectively remove the nervous system interference.
The only way to know, with certainty, that your neck curvature is in a healthy state is to make an appointment with one of our upper cervical chiropractors at our Dacula, Georgia office.
