Gloria has been experiencing muscle pain and the inability to do every day normal activities until she found Foresight Chiropractic Wellness Center.
She began chiropractic care prior to her hip surgery to help her body heal and recover more quickly. Over 30% of the sensory information needed to balance the body comes from the joints and muscles of the head and neck. The head is designed to be straight and the eyes to look level with the horizon. Any misalignment in the neck drastically affects the body's balance and equilibrium. The brain will use the muscles to shift the entire spine in an effort to balance the head, eyes and ears to allow upright movement. Restricted spinal joint movements decrease neurological input to the brain which further activates the fight and flight systems leading to body dis-ease, ill-health and a shorter life. The nervous system cannot be in rest and repair when it is in fight and flight.
After her surgery, Dr. Keith Lavender, a Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal upper cervical specialist and certified Advanced Muscle Integration Technique practitioner began a functional evaluation of over 700 muscles. Once the Doctor has a blueprint of the muscles and muscle groups that are functioning and those that are not, or are aberrant, treatment follows to restore and optimize her ability to function. Once a muscle is inhibited or aberrant, the central nervous system develops an adaptive strategy to use other muscles or tissues to take on more of the load. The adapted tissue becomes the next site of injury or pain.
Muscle overloads can occur from: lack of conditioning to the level of demand, traumatic force exceeds the integrity of the muscle of tissues, neurological inhibition, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, overuse of muscles, dehydration, organ and gland stress, emotional stress, medication, sleep deprivation, ice, toxic overload, and training and conditioning imbalances.
