Why Upper Cervical?

Orthospinology Spinal Correction

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear about spinal alignment? Most people would immediately associate it with self-confidence. After all, the way you walk or sit can say so much about your personality and potential self-esteem issues.  Not many would think about the spine’s role in keeping the body healthy and fit. Are you guilty of making the same mistake? As an Orthospinology technique practitioner, Dr. Mazen Aljutaili reminds patients like you that there’s more to your body posture than you think. 

Your Posture and Health – What’s the Connection?

The spinal column plays a pivotal role in maintaining optimal health because it houses the brainstem and spinal cord. These two nervous system organs take charge in sending and receiving information crucial to facilitating processes like energy metabolism, digestion, and tissue repair. 

Unfortunately, many things can cause the vertebral bones, especially the topmost ones, to shift from their position. When this happens, many of the body systems fail to function correctly. It also leaves you vulnerable to developing a laundry list of problems, including the following:

  • Vertigo attacks
  • Migraines
  • Chronic neck pain
  • TMJ pain
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Nerve compression 

Thankfully, the Orthospinology technique provides you the opportunity to fix the postural problem and eliminate signal interference in your brainstem and spinal cord. 

Why the Orthospinology Technique Works for Many Ailments 

It’s common for new Upper Cervical Care patients to wonder what makes the adjustments so effective in helping an extensive range of health problems. How can restoring the spine’s original curvature alleviate even the most poorly understood issues like fibromyalgia?

As we have mentioned above, Upper Cervical Care focuses on fixing your brain and body connection. With a reinforced communication pathway, your brain can perform its function correctly. This can help you eliminate prevalent health problems like spinning sensations and chronic nerve pain. Addressing postural imbalances in your cervical spine also provides you additional benefits such as:

  • Improved blood and cerebrospinal fluid drainage in the head
  • Restored spinal column integrity and alignment
  • Revitalized energy that can help you get through challenging days
  • Better chance at coping and managing chronic conditions like degenerative disc diseases

Every Orthospinology-Related Questions Answered

Trying a new approach to healing a sick and ailing body can be challenging for many people. Most people have a ton of questions about the procedure and how it can help them achieve desirable results. As the leader in providing Orthospinology Chiropractic Adjustments in Washington, DC, Palisades Upper Cervical Chiropractic hopes to help you better understand the remedy by answering some patient FAQs.  

Why causes neck misalignment?

The topmost neck bones – the C1 and C2 - allow your head to move or tilt with great ease. Unfortunately, their flexible nature makes them susceptible to shifting and impinging nearby tissues such as the brainstem. Because it takes minimal force for the Upper Cervical bones to get dislodged from their original positions, various activities and factors can trigger cervical subluxation. Some of these include:  

  • Accidents that hurt your neck and head
  • Sports activities that overextend your upper back
  • Poor posture while working, walking, or sleeping
  • Physical abuse that causes either a neck or head injury
  • Physical stress during childbirth 

What happens during an Orthospinology consultation?

Like every other approach used in Upper Cervical Care, the Orthospinology technique requires a detailed analysis of your health concern and your spine’s structure. That’s why during your first appointment, you should expect your orthospinology chiropractor to perform the following:

  • Retracing your medical history 
  • Checking current health complaint
  • Three-dimensional analysis of your cervical spine 
  • Assessment of your overall posture, including changes in your legs, pelvic bones, shoulders, etc.

Is Orthospinology spinal correction painful?

Upper Cervical Care uses gentle and safe techniques like the Orthospinology procedure to help patients cope with their health concerns. Furthermore, an Upper Cervical Chiropractor carries out the adjustments quickly using the hands, a specialized tool, or an Orthospinology adjustment table. 

Rest assured, your Upper Cervical doctor will provide you with tailored adjustments, allowing you to maximize the benefits offered by the Orthospinology technique.  

How long before you can see results after receiving Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

In our practice, we come across hundreds of patients each year who have severe health problems. Many feel desperate and stressed out because their condition has taken over their lives and caused them so much pain and misery. That’s why a significant number ask us how long it usually takes to see changes. 

Unfortunately, it’s virtually impossible to provide a rough estimate on the number of adjustments needed to heal the body.  We will most definitely need to look into several factors, including how long you’ve had the condition, how bad your cervical subluxation looks, and how fast your body can recover and heal. 

You will also need to consider the quality of your patient care and your additional efforts in preventing your bones from getting misaligned again. 

Based on these different factors, our Orthospinology doctor can help you determine how long it might take for the bones to go back to where they should be. 

Who can benefit from Orthospinology adjustments?

The Orthospinology technique can apply to anyone. Whether you’re an aging individual with chronic pain disorders, a pregnant woman with sciatica, or a working professional with persistent neck pain, we can help you. All you need is to book your initial chiropractic consultation to understand how to stabilize your spinal column and eliminate your health complaints.
