The most common misperception about Upper Cervical care is that it only helps back and neck pain. Although our doctors can certainly help those who come to us seeking relief from back and neck pain, we help patients suffering from a variety of conditions in and around Cornelius, NC with chiropractic care, including digestive issues. Lake Norman Spinal Care has helped thousands of patients restore their health through Upper Cervical Spinal Care.
Upper Cervical chiropractors recognize that the body is a self-healing organism controlled and coordinated by the central nervous system, which is protected by the skull and spine.
A Simple Concept
Upper Cervical care is based on the universal law of cause and effect. For every effect or symptom, physical or mental, there must be a root cause. At Lake Norman Spinal Care in Cornelius, NC, we can help digestive issues with chiropractic care by focusing on locating and removing interference to the nervous system that can be the cause of the health condition. Removing this interference allows the body to heal itself naturally without drugs or surgery. An Upper Cervical correction is very controlled; there is no pulling, tugging, or jerking of the head. This precise yet gentle touch allows the head, neck, and spine to return to the proper position, thus removing the interference and restoring balance to the body.
For most people, digestion is a natural process that we take for granted. However, there are millions of Americans who are not as fortunate. When the digestive process goes awry, it can result in any number of digestive disorders which can interfere with normal, healthy functioning.
While the list of digestive disorders is vast and varied, some of the more common ones are colic, acid reflux, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and Crohn’s disease. A component many of these disorders share is a nervous system that is “out of sync.”Every section of the GI tract is prone to its own unique disorder – some are merely annoying, such as heartburn, while others can be painful or even debilitating with cramping, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, or bleeding. If the condition persists, it can undermine a person’s overall health, and, in some cases, threaten his or her life.
Many sufferers attempt to treat their symptoms with over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. If this fails, they are typically given prescription drugs or steroids. As a last resort, surgery may be recommended to repair or remove a section of the digestive tract. However, the Physician’s Desk Reference reveals that the drugs used to treat digestive disorders can have dangerous side effects. Some may even cause further digestive distress.
