Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic a Treatment for Lupus Sufferers?

Lupus is a terrorizing autoimmune disorder that, sadly, plagues millions of people.The typical lupus patient will go from doctor to doctor in order to seek help, but is typically is confined to taking medications that do little more than quell some of their symptoms.  
While lupus symptoms widely vary, they typically come and go. During times when symptoms get worse, these are called flares or relapses; while the times during which symptoms are under control are what is called remissions. Here’s some possible natural solutions for lupus:

Common Symptoms of Lupus

Lupus has one of the widest range of symptoms of any diease, however, the main symptoms include headaches, joint pain/swelling, fever, hair loss and a butterfly-shaped rash across the nose and cheeks of the patient.
Other symptoms of lupus include:

  • Hair loss
  • Ulcers in the mouth and nose
  • Edema (or water retention) in the feet, face, and hands
  • Photosensitivity (sensitivity to light, specifically sunlight)
  • Raynaud’s Disease (extremities turning blue or white when they’re exposed to the cold)
How is Lupus Diagnosed?

Lupus is not simple to diagnose, mainly because it has the ability to mimic so many other illnesses. Typically, a doctor will review a patient’s medical and family history, and search for particular symptoms of systemic inflammation.
Because lupus can involve both the external and internal organs, a doctor will rely on observation as well as close testing in order to diagnose the disease. Sadly, due to Lupus’s stealthiness the diagnoses can be difficult to reach and the patient can go many years before reaching a true diagnosis.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care                                                

Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a little known discipline that has been aiding to relieve chronic disease sufferers while allowing them to heal naturally.  
Right here in Dacula, Georgia, Upper Cervical Care has been helping patients recover from a myriad of health issues that have their roots in nervous system dysfunction and irritation. The upper cervical spine is extremely vulnerable to injury due to the fact that the head weighs 10-12 pounds while resting on the top bone in the neck that is called the atlas.
Many people who suffer from chronic health complications, had prior neck injury that predisposes the body to bad health due to what is known as nervous system interference.  Anyone who is suffering from these illnesses should have their upper cervical spine thoroughly examined by a qualified Upper Cervical chiropractor.
More times than not, recovering from chronic health issues requires a multi-pronged approach.  This includes a healthy diet, and correcting upper neck misalignments . When addressed, all of these factors help the body improve function, so that it can repair and heal.
Health is something that requires substantial and consistent work and does not come in a bottle It is the result of doing the things that effectively address the underlying cause of the patient’s condition.  At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Georgia our team is trained to help you restore your health by partnering with you and coming up with natural solutions.
