Whiplash

Whiplash

 A trauma which occurs from a sudden acceleration deceleration event most commonly due to an auto accident.  Upon impact, your body pushes deeply into your seat.  Your head, momentarily isolated by your neck, delays its reaction while your body quickly reaches the limits of your seat belt.  Then, your body instantly changes directions, moving forward to the limits of your seat belt.  Now, your head starts moving backward in the opposite direction!  Unrestrained by a seat belt, your head is jerked back and then forward beyond its normal limits.  Specific chiropractic spinal adjustments help to restore proper motion and position of individual spinal bones which can help assure proper healing.

Spinal Decay

Spinal Decay

 Your body adapts to uncorrected spinal stress by depositing calcium into affected joint surfaces, ligaments, and connective tissues.  As if the body is trying to mend a broken bone, it attempts to 'repair' the malfunctioning spinal joint by joining the two segments together!  We call this slow, relentless, degenerative process 'spinal decay.'  The second phase of decay is the result of the body's attempt to stabilize and 'splint' the malfunctioning spinal joint.  The purpose of chiropractic care is to locate areas of the spine that are not working right and use specific 'adjustments' to improve its function and structure

Mechanical Neck and Low Back Pain

Mechanical Neck and  Low Back pain

Most neck and back pain is caused by disorders of the spine. Muscle pain is a common symptom and is typically caused by irritation of the deeper muscles by the dorsal rami of the spinal nerve and in the more superficial muscles from a local reaction to the spine injury.   Most spinal disorders are mechanical.  Disk bulging or degeneration, osteophytes, spondylolysis, facet abnormalities are common causes of people with neck or back pain,  The etiology of back pain, particularly if mechanical, is often multifactorial, with an underlying disorder exacerbated by fatigue, physical deconditioning, muscle pain, poor posture, weakness of stabilizing muscles, decreased flexibility, and sometimes psychosocial stress or psychiatric abnormality.
