ACE Spinal Health
Why is SPINAL HEALTH CARE so important? Dentists have done a pretty good job at educating us to maintain teeth to prevent decay, tartar and keep them healthy. As with your teeth, your spine shows signs of lack of care, But only when it has been neglected for months and possibly years. You may not feel tooth decay and you probably won’t feel damage to your spine – the problem is: dysfunction of the spinal joints affecting discs, bones, muscles and nerves can disrupt the physiological systems your body requires for good health. Spinal health care keeps your spine in good shape and helps prevent unnecessary pain and suffering. Preventing problems occurring requires minimal intervention, conversely once symptoms and signs have occurred it can be more complicated and timely to treat. What Causes Misalignment of the Spine Misalignments are caused by stress: macro-stress (accidents falls, sports injuries and other trauma) or micro-stress (repeated movements that gradually wear down your body parts, various types of manual work, poor posture, especially prolonged computer use, poor sleep habits and emotional/mental stress which can cause chronic tension and most importantly muscular imbalances). Mal-alignment can occur from childhood falls etc. It is for that reason that children need spinal care especially throughout growth spurts when it is common to find orthopaedic conditions such as scoliosis etc ranging from mild to severe many neurological and other health problems have been traced to spinal care; many neurological and other health problems have been traced to spinal damage from childhood.. Mal-aligned or dysfunctional vertebra are the most common forms of interference with nerves, which predispose your spine to degenerative changes Therefore, it is wise to have a check-up to help prevent further problems and most importantly, keep you healthy!
