1. Accidents and Injuries
Old injuries can weaken the structures around the Brain and Nervous system, allowing them to misalign. Misalignments at the base of the head (Upper Cervical Spine) have been shown to cause changes in the way the Brain and Nervous system control the body.
Effect #1 Chronic Pain
Over time, chronic pain develops in the body. Headaches, joint and muscle pain become increasingly worse. Your discs start to bulge. You feel like you are “getting old” or your body is “falling apart.” You MD recommends drugs, cortisone shots, or surgery.
2. Reduced Function
Nerve flow and circulation between the brainstem and the body becomes altered. This causes an increase in muscle tone along one side of the body, stressing the shoulder, spine, pelvis and hips. It also begins to affect the Autonomic Control of the internal organs of the body.
Effect #2: Varying Health Issues
Your Autonomic System is not working right, so different functions begin to break down. You may start to get vertigo, headaches, brain fog, ringing in the ears, asthma, low immune function, chronic allergies, acid reflux, hear palpitations, digestive problems, fatigue, or other “unrelated” symptoms.
3. Increasing Pain and Degeneration
Over time, pain develops throughout the body and joints begin to age prematurely leading to arthritis and degeneration. Disrupted Autonomic control can develop into chronic asthma, allergies, high blood pressure, digestive problems, acid reflux, fatigue and many other symptoms.
Effect #3: A Mixture of Both
You may have a combination of symptoms and try different drugs, surgeries, general chiropractors, or alternative health therapies.
