Our nervous system is a miraculous structure, controlling every muscle, cell, organ, and tissue in our entire body. The brain stem extends from the brain, passing through the very top spinal bone called the “atlas” bone and turning into the spinal cord.
Subluxation is interference in the spine that puts pressure on the nerves. This causes not only aches and pains in the body, but dysfunction to integral organs and functions in the body. Removing an atlas subluxation can help alleviate pain in the head or neck, and anywhere else in the spine as well. Neurologically based chiropractic adjustments are gentle and specific enough to alleviate misalignments in the spine, allowing for optimal communication from the brain to the spinal cord so that the body can feel and function at its best.
In Greek mythology, Atlas was a Titan who held the heavens upon his shoulders. Our own Atlas works much the same way! The spine – and even before that, the atlas – is the gateway to health.
“Over the past year, the symptoms and issues I initially had have improved. My headaches are almost non-existent!”
Becky suffered with headaches and tingling/numbness in her arms and fingers for many years. “The headaches would get pretty severe, and the numbness and tingling in my arms and fingers would interfere with my work. I saw my doctor for headaches but didn’t find any relief. Thankfully, I’ve been able to tell an improvement since coming to Integral. The office is very impressive, warm, welcoming, and God-loving! Over the past year, the symptoms and issues I initially had have improved. My headaches are almost non-existent! My brother and sister-in-law are also under care, and their symptoms and concerns have improved since being seen. I would certainly recommend chiropractic to others!”
“I’ve been able to reduce acid reflux drugs and have no more sciatic pain.”
Sam dealt with sciatic pain, blood pressure issues, and knee pain for two years, even having to have a knee replacement. “The pain was moderate, but enough to cause discomfort. Chiropractic care has been very helpful for me. I’ve been able to reduce acid reflux drugs and have no more sciatic pain. The progress was slow at first, but the pain disappeared after six months. I generally felt better in progressive time. My wife now also is under care for back pain. The experience has been great, and the staff is always friendly. I know that they care for our physical health.”
