Degenerative Disc Disease Relief Associated with Neck Pain

If the body endures an accident or injury, damage can be done to the connective tissue that consists of the ligaments, muscles, and tendons that keep the spine in place. This weakens this tissue and causes a breakdown of the spine. The spine then locks into a position of stress causing further damage to joints, muscles, and discs. The longer this continues, the more damage is done.

Those of us in the field of upper cervical chiropractic care are very familiar with this situation. We often see patients with spines in this kind of shape. Many times it is due to a vehicle accident that may have occurred recently or may have actually happened as long as fifteen years ago.

Degenerative disc disease is the term applied to this type of breakdown of the bones, ligaments, and discs. It is hard to determine how long it takes for this actually to happen, but often we can determine when the accident has occurred due to the amount of damage to the spine. This can also be referred to as arthritis of the spine. Can this condition be reversed?

It is possible that, through the care of an upper cervical chiropractor, a person can see a reversal of their symptoms. If there is a misalignment as small as ¼ of a millimeter, it can lead to pressure being put on the brainstem. When this happens, the brain and the body no longer communicate properly leading to a variety of health problems. We are specially trained to detect these misalignments using the latest technology. Once they are discovered, we can begin to work to correct them. Once corrected, the brain and the body begin communicating properly, and healing can begin. This will also relieve the pressure being placed on the spine and a person should begin to see a reversal of their symptoms of degenerative disc disease.
