Pain is real but so is hope.
Pain is the way the brain warns us that something isn't quite right. Very often there is nothing physical that pain can be attributed to.
Adaptability is the key to health. It is our nervous system that keeps us adapting to our environment. Chronic pain the indicates decrease in our ability to adapt.
In the subsequent pages, we will discuss how abnormal sensory inputs from joint dysfunctions affects the brain, why chronic pain is a disease of the brain, and why structural problems are not a cause of chronic pain.
Better health can be attained if we focus our attention on detecting and eliminating abnormal sensory inputs that disturb the equilibrium of the body.
Dr. Peter Hong, Chiropractor
Chiropractic is a complete system of healthcare focused on restoring, preserving, and optimizing health by natural hands-on care.
The body heals itself! The job of a Chiropractor is to reduce the nerve interference that is caused by the misalignment of the spine. This is done by adjusting the spine to return normal function to the nervous system.
You cannot be truly healthy, reach your full potential or achieve your greatest healing ability if your nervous system is under interference.
Upper Cervical Approach
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a highly unique and specialized procedure for correcting misalignment of the entire spine.
The upper cervical (upper neck) is located at the top of the spine. It encases the brain stem, supports to the head and allows its movement.
When the upper cervical vertebrae becomes misaligned it adversely affects the body posture and mind-body communication.
Upper cervical adjustment promotes health by properly aligning the head on top of the upper neck.
With the advance of neuroscience, traditional Chiropractic thinking will be modified to reflect the new knowledge gained.
The biggest stride will be paradigm shift from an anatomical model (of muscle, bone, joint and nerve) to an neurological model (of sensory input, CNS processing and motor output), to take advantage of the role of CNS in the production of pain, posture and movement in the treatment of chronic pain.
I hope this website will give you a better understanding of this novel concept.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
WHO definition of health (1948)
Health is the ability to adapt and self manage in the face of social, physical, and emotional challenges.
