More energy, better mood, and better sleep. These are some of the most common reactions to upper cervical chiropractic care as reported by patients. The beautiful thing is that these people didn't have to change much or take more meds to achieve these results. They found out that their body was all the time trying to bring about this normal state but couldn't because of an upper neck misalignment affecting the brainstem. When their neck was adjusted precisely the body could restore normal health conditions.
The hypothalamus and brainstem are the two main players in energy outputs in the body. They do this by receiving sensory information from all locations in the body and then sending signals to produce a wide variety of physiological responses. For example, the hypothalamus receives nerve signals from various organs regarding appetite and sends out responsive nerve signals to produce a reaction (hungry...must eat). The hypothalamus and brainstem are also responsible for proper hormone secretion, body temperature control, hunger/thirst, sleep cycles, blood pressure, heart rate, learning, and memory. These are all controlled normally under balanced structural conditions.
What happens under abnormal conditions? The answer is a list of abnormal symptoms that are very common in today's society. Hormone imbalances, sleep difficulty, high blood pressure, difficulty concentrating, and fatigue are just a few of them. Treatment methods for these types of problems are most commonly prescription medications. Many people fight their fatigue with substances such as coffee and energy drinks that provide temporary stimulation often followed by a crash. For those who have received no benefit from these types of treatments, upper cervical chiropractic offers a viable solution that promotes the balance and normalization of the functions of the nervous system including the hypothalamus and brainstem.
In this office we use infrared thermography to track body heat emissions. Abnormal baseline measures demonstrate heat distribution patterns that do not change and are imbalanced (remember the hypothalamus and brainstem is responsible for body temperature output). These people usually have at least a few of the symptoms indicating abnormal nervous system regulation i.e. fatigue, mood problems, sleep difficulty, learning disorders, difficulty concentrating, hormone imbalances, etc. We then identify the spinal misalignment that is abnormally stressing the brainstem and nervous system. When we give the custom adjustment to correct the misalignment we not only begin to see changes in thermography readings, but we also witness progressive health changes as the individual's body restores normal conditions over time. This is a big deal for people who have tried everything but not found good health results.
The thermography readings above demonstrate a pattern of unbalanced thermal regulation (left) and a more normal and balanced reading resulting from a vertebral adjustment (right).
Are you struggling with low energy, poor mood, or any of the symptoms related to abnormal nervous system, hypothalamus, and brainstem function? Upper cervical chiropractic is an effective health restoration service that can improve your quality of life. In most cases an upper neck misalignment (vertebral subluxation) can exist for years causing abnormal nervous system function without back or neck pain. For this reason, we offer a complimentary consultation and thermography reading to investigate your need for care. Call 843-399-0182 to schedule.
