There is a specific and scientific reason you are up to your neck in pain. Most likely it is due to your spine not being in a healthy alignment. Unhealthy spine alignment is a mechanical and neurological problem called Vertebral Subluxation.
The Gonstead Technique recognizes that proper intervertebral disc function is the foundation to a healthy spine and nervous system. Physical and emotional traumas can shift and misalign the spinal bones directly injuring and altering the mechanics of the intervertebral discs. Disc injury causes soft tissue damage, swelling and tissue expansion irritating the delicate nerves nearby. This nerve pressure negatively affects the organs and glands under their control. As a result, the damaged and unstable spinal joints then tighten the surrounding muscles. Spinal misalignments causing nervous system interference is called vertebral subluxation and can be present without symptoms. If left uncorrected, subluxation may lead to spinal decay over time. Correcting subluxation is the focus of your chiropractic care. Our team is comprised of highly experienced Gonstead chiropractors that have helped many people regain their health and quality of life. Your customized corrective care plan will consist of a series of specific Gonstead chiropractic adjustments that are gentle, safe, and effective. Adjustments at specific places and the right time help restore the structure of your spine and the function of your nervous system. As nerve interference is removed, your body’s ability to heal, function and operate is restored and symptoms often subside.
“I have been getting treatment from Vertical Chiropractic for about a year now. Previously, quality of life had gone steadily downhill. I was suffering with frequent headaches both day and night and got to a point where I could not lift up my head without the help of my hand pushing my chin up.
I went to my family doctor who took x-rays and referred me to a nerve and pain specialist. I was diagnosed with bone spurs in my neck. She suggested steroid injections in my neck; which I refused. After that I went to physical therapy for several weeks; without relief. I tried acupuncture for a while. That didn’t help either. I was discouraged and very desperate to say the least.
This was not my first visit to a chiropractor; I had been to many over the years. My daughter had heard of someone who had been helped by Vertical Chiropractic. So, on the mention of that success, I made an appointment but with skepticism. I cannot stress how grateful I am for all they have done to help me. Within a few short visits the headaches began to lessen in frequency. I rarely get headaches now. I still do get treatment on the bone spur issue because it’s a problem that developed over many years. I believe the severity of my neck issues would not have developed if I had sought the treatment of Vertical Chiropractic sooner.”
