Specific, gentle, spinal adjustments by a NUCCA chiropractor in the Cleveland / Akron area can potentially alleviate your back pain caused by these interrelated stresses.
The most overlooked stressor that we overcome each day is the stress of Gravity. I know it sounds silly but your brain spends most of its energy each day keeping your body balanced in the gravitational field. Actually a Nobel prize winner for brain research says:
“Better than 90 percent of the energy output of the brain is used in relating the physical body in its gravitational field. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.”
Roger Sperry, PhD. Medical Nobel Prize winner for brain research, 1981.
So, the biggest stressor we have to overcome is gravity. 90% of your brains energy is used to help you deal with gravity. What does it mean to be is ‘mechanically distorted’ you might ask? Mechanically distorted is with you have:
head tilt, unlevel shoulders, unlevel pelvis, muscle spasm, locked up vertebral joints. Click here to read a previous post on the topic.
The best way to make sure your spine is not “mechanically distorted” is by visiting a NUCCA Upper Cervical Chiropractor.
So I can hear what you are thinking, What causes us to get mechanically distorted (out of balance)?
1. Trauma to your back because of an accident, odd twisting and tweaking, falls on the tail bone, poor posture, and weak muscles can cause back pain because that can throw your spine out of balance (cause mechanical distortion). These are examples of physical stress to your spine that may be alleviated by visiting a specific, gentle, NUCCA chiropractor in the Cleveland Akron area.
2. Poor nutrition, alcohol or drug abuse, and toxins ingested through the air or water in the Akron area are all examples of chemical stresses which may result in back pain and poorly aligned spines.
3. Emotional stress is the last of these interrelated stresses which may affect the alignment of your spine and cause back pain. Severe emotional stress may weaken your immune system, can cause muscle spasm and can make your spine and back more susceptible to injury and disease. Therefore a visit to your Stow chiropractor could be beneficial to your health in more ways than you may have previously thought.
Any combination of these stresses, common in the Cleveland / Akron area, could cause your spine to go out of alignment. Specific spine adjustments can decrease muscle tension, reduce your stress, reduce mechanical distortion, and thus contribute to your overall health and wellness.
A NUCCA upper cervical chiropractor rebalances the spine allowing your body to function at peak levels giving you the relief you need from your back pain.
