Not So Common Conditions
Along with neck and back pain and other commonly treated musculoskeletal conditions there is also a long list of other conditions which have been shown to be helped by chiropractic treatment. These conditions are helped because as you remove interference on nerves and the nervous system with chiropractic adjustments then full strength signals are able to be sent to the organs from the brain, and vice versa, as well as the muscles, thus optimizing function.
For instance, the nerves that come from the 7th thoracic vertebral level (T7), which is located between the bottom of the shoulder blades send and receive signals from the stomach. When there is misalignment of T7 which is putting pressure on the nerves (subluxation) this can refer pain to the stomach. The reverse can also be true, issues in the stomach can refer pain to T7.
Children are especially susceptible to these conditions but also respond very quickly, sometimes instantly, to proper treatment.
