The Orthospinology Difference

(Newberry location only)

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Glad you asked! Orthospinology is a method of upper cervical chiropractic focusing on precision, from start to finish. What this precision allows us to accomplish is quite remarkable. But to properly understand what we are trying to accomplish, we must first understand why.

ATLAS SUBLUXATION

The atlas is the upper-most bone in the cervical spine (your neck) and is one of the most dynamic joints in the human frame. This bone is not only the seat of the skull, but the portal through which the brain tissue translates to the spinal cord.

WHAT DOES IT HAVE TO DO WITH ME?

Great question! Did you know your eye is actually an extension of brain neural tissue? How does it feel when there is a speck in your eye? Like a Buick right? Now imagine if the speck were on your brainstem itself?

The major difference in this analogy is that its not a speck on your brain. Rather, your atlas, being the dynamic structure that it is, can become misaligned, applying pressure and tension to the brainstem and spinal cord. This manifests itself in a variety of symptoms from migraines/headaches to low back pain and accelerated spinal degeneration.

HOW DO YOU FIX IT?

This is where Orthospinology shines. We use the most precise, gentle equipment available! Because we have measured so precisely (down to the hundredth of a millimeter!), and found the exact direction, tilt, and rotational components of your unique misalignment, our adjustments only require around 3-5 pounds of pressure! That scary looking instrument, set at the tension appropriate to adjust an atlas, can be pulsed on your closed eye without discomfort.

FAQ

What is chiropractic care, and how does it work?
Chiropractic care is a healthcare discipline that focuses on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal disorders, particularly those related to the spine. Chiropractors use manual adjustments and other non-invasive techniques to align the body’s musculoskeletal structure, primarily the spine, to alleviate pain and improve overall health. These adjustments help restore proper nervous system function, promoting the body’s natural healing process.
Is chiropractic care safe?
Chiropractic care is generally considered safe when performed by a licensed and trained chiropractor. Chiropractors undergo extensive education and training to ensure safe and effective treatment. They use non-invasive techniques and avoid the use of drugs or surgery. However, as with any medical treatment, there may be some risks involved. Your chiropractor will assess your health history and perform a thorough examination to determine the suitability of chiropractic care for you.
What conditions can chiropractic care treat?
Chiropractic care can effectively treat a range of conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, sciatica, joint pain, sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, and many more. Chiropractors focus on the musculoskeletal system and its connection to overall health, aiming to restore proper alignment and function to the body.
What is neuropathy, and what causes it?
Neuropathy refers to a condition that affects the peripheral nerves, causing symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected areas. It can be caused by various factors, including diabetes, infections, traumatic injuries, autoimmune diseases, vitamin deficiencies, exposure to toxins, and certain medications. The condition occurs when the nerves are damaged or dysfunctional, disrupting the normal transmission of signals between the brain, spinal cord, and the rest of the body.
How is neuropathy diagnosed and treated?
Diagnosing neuropathy involves a combination of medical history evaluation, physical examination, and specialized tests such as nerve conduction studies and electromyography. The underlying cause of neuropathy must be identified for appropriate treatment. Depending on the cause and severity, treatment may involve addressing the underlying condition, managing symptoms, and preventing further nerve damage. Treatments can include medication to alleviate pain, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and in some cases, surgery.
What techniques do chiropractors use?
Chiropractors utilize a variety of techniques to address musculoskeletal issues. Common techniques include spinal adjustments or manipulations, mobilizations, soft tissue therapies, rehabilitative exercises, and lifestyle advice. The choice of technique depends on the specific condition and the individual needs of the patient.
How many chiropractic sessions will I need?
The number of chiropractic sessions needed varies depending on the condition being treated, the severity of the problem, and the individual’s response to treatment. Some individuals may experience significant improvement after just a few sessions, while others may require more ongoing care for chronic or complex conditions. Your chiropractor will create a personalized treatment plan and regularly reassess your progress to determine the optimal number of sessions for your specific needs.
Can chiropractic care help with prevention and wellness?
Absolutely! Chiropractic care is not only focused on treating existing conditions but also on promoting overall wellness and preventing future health issues. Regular chiropractic adjustments can help maintain proper spinal alignment, improve joint mobility, enhance nervous system function, and support the body’s natural healing ability. Many people choose to receive chiropractic care as part of their wellness routine to optimize their health and prevent future problems.
