Upper Cervical Health Care
Upper Cervical Care is an effective, alternative treatment to drugs and surgery for a wide variety
Below is just a a partial list of some of the most common, but if you do not see your health problem on this list do not assume we cannot help you. If you have a central nervous system, then it needs to be unrestricted for your body to function correctly.
Can you believe that the agonizing nights wrestling with muscle spasms could be caused by your neck?
Muscle spasm most commonly affects the back, shoulders and hips, but can also affect the arms, legs or torso. Individual muscles have very little to no ability to contract without the involvement of a signaling nerve (either intentional or reflexive).
A muscle laying out by itself with no nerve stimulation is called a steak or chicken breast!!!
Nerve hyperexcitability describes a group of disorders characterized by chronic pain variations, muscle cramps, twitching and sometimes stiffness.
When present, it may be characterized by the occurrence of continuous muscle fiber activity on routine surface electromyography (EMG).
“Spasming” nerves = spasming muscles.
Nerves respond to mechanical energy forces: touch, pressure, stretching, twisting, and movement. Ranging in complexity from free nerve endings beneath the skin to more complex tactile receptors at the bases of hair, mechanoreceptors change shape when pushed or pulled. The more pushing and pulling the more signals the nerves fire and become more excited (spasmed).
Chronic hyperactivity of nerves often happens when an upper cervical problem has occurred. Upper cervical problems are many times the result of minor trauma which required little to no emergency treatment at the time it occurred but has led to degenerating health over time. Occasionally symptoms appear immediately, but most often develop chronically a little more and more over time.
A simple test of the nerves, shown below can determine specifically whether this condition exists.
Not everyone with muscle spasms has this problem … but do you?
