Monday Morning Health Tip – Neck Injuries Impact Overall Health

Neck Injuries Impact Overall Health

Regardless of the source, spinal traumas almost always result in vertebral subluxations — misalignment or restriction of vertebrae (spinal bones).  And vertebral subluxations are associated with a vast assortment of health issues, such as headaches, migraines, backaches, neck pain, carpal tunnel syndrome and now many other, more serious conditions.

Research links vertebral subluxations caused by spinal trauma affecting the upper neck to maladies including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease.

How could an upper neck injury cause these conditions?  Researchers theorize that vertebral subluxations set up virtual roadblocks within the neck and spinal column.  These roadblocks may alter nerve function and sensation, which may affect every part of the body from the brain to the heart.

The good news is that vertebral subluxations are correctable through chiropractic adjustments, safe and gentle maneuvers employed by doctors of chiropractic.

Bottom line:  Neck injuries affect more than just the neck.  Spinal trauma accidents occur in just seconds, yet chiropractors, such as Dr. Smith, know that uncorrected vertebral subluxations may last for years, causing enduring pain and disability. Dr. Barbara Smith
