Two other causes which have a relationship to chiropractic are: poor posture and injuries.
How Do We Treat Tension Headaches?
Health First Chiropractic utilizes a very specific type of care, known as Blair Upper Cervical. Through out life accidents and injuries cause the spine to misalign and create an abnormal body posture. Over time this leads to abnormal wear and tear of the joints in the neck/back until a noticeable problem develops.
The Blair work consists of a detailed analysis of an upper neck misalignment and it’s impact on the health of the nervous system. A precise, gentle correction is made to correct this misalignment and ultimately stabilize the spine. This is accomplished without the use of drugs or surgery and does not involve any twisting or popping/cracking of the neck.
