What is Orthospinology in Oxford

image

Orthospinology is based on the clinical scientific model of correcting the alignment of the head and neck to as straight as possible position.  It is a precision analysis system of health care, centered on the Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex.  It has been proven scientifically that the upper cervical spine is the primary most influential region of the body that can affect health.  Vital messages from the brain and the cerebral spinal fluids surrounding the brain and spinal cord must freely flow to maintain the health of the body.  When there is nerve interference at the atlas (C1) and axis (C2) also known as an Atlas Subluxation complex, it reduces the ability of the body to heal itself.  Orthospinology uses x-ray analysis to see the exact location of the C1, C2 complex to make a very gentle correction to move the position of the C1 vertebrae.  This is done by a highly trained chiropractor in Oxford in this specialty using their hands or a specific instrument. The results of this adjustment are improved brain to body communication resulting in improved health.

OXFORD MI CHIROPRACTOR EXPLAINS THE EFFECTS OF A MISALIGNMENT OF THE UPPER CERVICAL SPINE

iamge

The area where the head meets the neck is the most complex joint in the body and a vital connection between the brain and body.  This joint is made up of the atlas (C1) and axis (C2) and these are the first two vertebrae in the spine. When the atlas becomes misaligned it is called an Atlas Subluxation complex.  Lucinda Burke, DC explains that there are numerous reasons that can cause the atlas to become misaligned from physical, chemical and emotional stresses; such as falls, car accidents, injuries that occur in sports, (for example soccer, football, wrestling and volleyball to name a few) concussions, poor posture, cell phone use (text neck) or even the child birth process.  When this joint is misaligned, the symptoms vary greatly.  Some people have slight symptoms from light posture changes, mild headaches or difficulty sleeping to more severe symptoms such as migraines, fibromyalgia, neck pain, anxiety, depression, numbness, sciatica, spinal stenosis, spinal degeneration, dementia, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s.  The longer a person has an Atlas Subluxation complex with it being uncorrected, it robs a person of their health.  A high percentage of people have an uncorrected neck misalignment throughout their adult life. After the initial pain from an injury, even if it occurs at a young age, the upper cervical misalignment can remain pain free for years until an injury occurs later in life and the body finally takes its toll in the form of degenerative disc disease, arthritis, or stenosis. Pain can be the last symptom to occur to indicate a problem exists.

CORRECTING THE CAUSE

So our goal of upper cervical treatment at the office of Lucinda Burke, DC's office is to increase proper nerve signals between the brain and the body by correcting misalignments of the Atlas Subluxation complex.   A careful and comprehensive evaluation is used to determine and locate the problem, which could be the source of the pain or discomfort and could be in a location far from where the symptom is occurring.  A gentle and precise correction of the cervical misalignment is performed with the long term goal of stabilizing the upper cervical spine with the result of this correction, changes occur throughout the entire spine as normal alignment and posture is restored. This adjustment aims to restore the health and function of how the human body is supposed to work. This technique has also helped thousands of people who were told “nothing could be done”.  It also prevents countless conditions for people who get this care BEFORE they get into crisis.
