MIGRAINES OR HEADACHES

Headaches and migraines can be common for many people in their everyday life, but it is not normal to have these. Sounds and light can be major irritants when a migraine is present. This aura type feeling can be present, along with direct pain along with tingling on one side or both sides of the face and head. Common causes of headaches are: blood flow issues to the head, disruption in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow, and muscle tension. The most common area in the spine to affect these areas is along the upper neck.

ADD/ADHD

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a very common diagnosis in the united states affecting many children and adults alike. What is commonly found is an imbalance in the nervous system and prescriptive medications, in particular stimulants, are often the gold standard for treating the symptoms of the condition. If medication is out of the question or if you feel that has not been helping you or your child this is where we come in.

We analyze the nervous system and find these areas of imbalance and interference and keep them at bay over time. When there is balance back into the nervous system over time, we find that the signs and symptoms of ADD/ADHD improve. Imagine being able to lessen your medication dosage/frequency, or not having to take any at all.

Autism Spectrum Disorders

With the most recent research and reports by the NHIS autism is now seen in 1 in 36 children, which is roughly about 1 child per classroom. One of the key components in helping children with autism is working with the nervous system and keeping it in balance. This is what we do. We are only one piece of the puzzle to help, but can help your child with the other therapies that they need and are receiving.

Controlled substances often times is the medical gold standard with behavioral therapy, physical therapy, or occupational therapy.

SLEEP ISSUES AND INSOMNIA

In the brainstem we have our sleep centers which controls and regulates our ability to be able to initiate deep sleep without even having to think about it. When you’re having trouble falling asleep, waking up frequently, or not even feeling like you have had a full night’s rest, looking at the upper neck would be of benefit to you. The top two bones in the neck house the brainstem and often misalign creating pressure along the brainstem and affect our sleep cycles.

Removing the pressure and interference along the brainstem over time can help you get a better night’s sleep and allow you to be able to function more fully. Before considering prescriptions or if you’re not getting what you are looking for consider upper cervical chiropractic care and let us see if you’re a good candidate to benefit from the service that we offer.

Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)

Inflammatory Bowel Disease includes: Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease which often are lifelong conditions. Common signs and symptoms include frequent abdominal pain, gas, bloating, increased amount and frequency of bowel movements are just some of the signs of IBD. Chronic inflammation is present and can only get worse over time if the issues are not being addressed.

One of the key areas to help is having a healthy functioning Vagus Nerve, which is what controls the parasympathetic (rest and digest) division of the nervous system to the GI Tract. With the Vagus nerve coming off of the brainstem, chronic misalignment of the top two bones in your neck can be making your issues worse here. Before considering having to live life around IBD, contact us and let’s see if we are a good fit to help.

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is what controls and coordinates many of our life’s functions so that we don’t have to even think about it. Balance in the two branches of the ANS, the sympathetic (fight or flight) and the parasympathetic divisions are key in helping with POTS. An overstimulation of the sympathetic nervous system is often seen. POTS affects women primarily more than men and is more often seen and diagnosed during childbearing years. Classic signs with be a high heart rate with a low blood pressure and volume and dizziness/fainting being positional related.

With a misalignment of the top two bones in the neck putting pressure and affecting the function of the brainstem and autonomic nervous system. If medication and the tweaks that you have had to make in your life to be able to survive and function in day to day life, upper cervical chiropractic care may be your answer to help with POTS. What we do is help the ANS get back into balance and help keep itself in balance over time.
