Approaching The Cervical Spine
The cervical spine is the curved portion of the spine that comprises of the first seven vertebrae. This particular area of the spine is essential for maintaining a balanced, healthy system. Any trauma or misalignment can lead to significant pain, recurring headaches, inflammation, and other uncomfortable conditions.
Without regular Chiropractic examinations, various conditions and chronic diseases can develop over time without producing symptoms. Unfortunately, too many patients require in-depth treatment for conditions that could have been prevented through consistent check-ups.
Protecting The Integrity of The Cervical Curve
The curvature of the spine is responsible for absorbing the impact of your actions on behalf of other body parts. If the appropriate curves are not apparent, the discs and joints are exposed to significant tension. An unhealthy curve can lead to a variety of health concerns and complications, including disc degeneration, neurological disorders, arthritis, and joint fusion.
How To Determine The Health of Your Spine’s Curve
The easiest way to identify the health of your neck’s curve is to be seen by one of the Chiropractors at AICA Marietta. Our clinic contains a variety of imaging devices like X-rays that can help your Chiropractor understand what kind of curve you have and the most appropriate ways to support or maintain its health. Although you may not experience neck pain right now, having an experienced Chiropractor evaluate your condition is the only way to diagnose and prevent underlying health concerns from developing.
Many people we treat initially come into our clinic with a reduced curvature in their neck. Chiropractic adjustments and stabilization therapies are useful for restoring the neck’s curvature to a healthy position, allowing most patients to notice immediate pain relief and improvements.
