Why Choose Chiropractic Care?
F.H.P. VS Normal Posture
First and foremost, for your personal health and wellness! Living in constant pain is not normal, and in many cases is curable in a way that doesn’t require harmful medications or surgery.
In addition to the countless testimonials of present and past chiropractic patients, there are many scientific studies that have proven the positive life-long benefits, healing properties, and pain relief that chiropractic care can bring.
One of the most common issues that we see with patients is that of “Forward Head Posture” (F.H.P). As you can see in the diagram below, F.H.P. causes excessive stress on the nerves and joints, which leads to pain, loss in blood flow, disc erosion, and other health issues.
When treated early, F.H.P. can be reduced, or even eliminated completely. F.H.P. is only one of the many problems that we work with, but all are equally important to resolve. The medical community has expressed time and again very definitive facts regarding the issue:
Dangers of waiting too long
“Loss of the cervical curve stretches the spinal cord 5-7 centimeters causes disease.”
Dr. A Breig, M.D. Neurosurgeon (Nobel Prize recipient)
“Forward head posture leads to long term muscle strain, disc herniations, arthritis and pinched nerves.”
Mayo Clinic, 2000
“Deviations in the body’s center of gravity caused poor posture, which resulted in intestinal problems, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, osteoporosis, hip and foot deformities, poor health, decreased quality of life, and a shortened life span.”
Journal of the American Medical Association, 1957
