A sprained neck is not only painful; it can be quite serious for one’s overall health and well-being. Consequently, you will want to see your chiropractor and receive a diagnosis and treatment as soon as you recognize there is a problem, to avoid any sort of complications or prolonged pain.
One reason you want to act quickly is because your neck is the top part of your spine, the cervical vertebrae are housed inside your neck. Those vertebrae and the nerves which are part of that structure are vital to the health of your entire body. For example, a mistreated injury in the neck can result in a reduced ability to breathe properly or can affect your voice. It can also bit by bit, if left untreated, create a domino effect travelling down your spine, as your back tries to compensate for a weakened neck but only winds up weakening itself more. Read more

The therapy is certainly not for everyone, which is why it is important for patients to inform themselves before taking this route. Read more
Motor neuropathy, a type of peripheral neuropathy, occurs as the result of damage to the nerves that control muscles and movement within the body. There are several forms of peripheral neuropathy, and most fall under one of four categories: motor, sensory, autonomic, or combination.
Motor neuropathy affects the nerves that are associated with moving your arms and hands, legs and feet or talking. Patients may initially experience symptoms on their hands, feet, arms, and legs, which are referred to as sensorimotor polyneuropathy. While nerve damage can be tricky to treat, there are options that can help, depending on the cause and level of severity. Read more
There are many ‘facts’ and claims associated with certain diseases or specific medications we have just come to accept, no questions asked. However, several of these well-known notions surrounding, for example, what a leading cause of cardiovascular disease is, have recently been debunked. Beyond beginning to question whether or not a certain supplement or vitamin actually contributes to heart disease, several recent studies are showing that some popular antianxiety drugs are actually causing people to become more susceptible to fractures and bone damage. These are just a few examples that are causing us to take a step back and look deeper into the benefits of alternative health options, such as chiropractic care. Read more
