As our community of amazing clients continue to grow at Elevation Hydration, we often get asked about other types of treatments and services that can be helpful for allowing our bodies to function optimally. Obviously, our bodies are made mostly of water, but what allows that amazing hydration to function properly happens to be something called your CNS or Central Nervous System. In this article we are going to highlight one of our amazing community businesses. If you are looking for a chiropractor Colorado Springs, read on about how Balance Chiropractic may help you!

What Do Most Chiropractors Do?

When most people think about going to the chiropractor, they think about getting their neck and back cracked, twisted into a pretzel, and popped all over. According to Dr. Max Pohl at Balance Chiropractic,

“Most conventional chiropractors in Colorado Springs do a great job at obtaining their goals of short-term pain relief, increasing range of motion, and reducing muscle spasms. They usually do this by general manipulation, and therapies that may include electrical stimulation, ultrasound, roller tables, muscle massage or nutrition recommendations.”

Dr. Max goes on to explain that for those looking for a more long-term solution to more chronic issues such as vertigo, migraines, pinched nerves, and fibromyalgia, Balance Chiropractic offers a different approach!

What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic can easily be explained as a system of precisely assessing misalignments within the upper neck, and gently correcting those misalignments without twisting, popping, or cracking the spine. The corrections are guided by 3-dimensional imaging using a Cone Beam CT machine, so there is zero guess work. One of the great things about Balance Chiropractic is that they retake your imaging after the first adjustment to make sure there is immediate progress in the right direction.

Why Should I See an Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Colorado Springs?

Even Dr. Max openly agrees that their form of adjustment isn’t for everyone, for a specific subset of people, the results can be life changing. From my many years of working on ambulances and seeing a whole host of injuries, there is no type of injury more dangerous than one to the upper neck and head. Obviously, this is because the brain controls everything and every signal that it sends to and from the body happens to go directly through the upper neck. The centers within your upper neck control things like breathing, digestion, blood to and from the brain and when this area shifts it can either immediately or eventually have detrimental effects to the body. Think of trying to watch television (your brain), while not having the cord plugged into the electrical outlet on the wall (your body) – how well is that going to work? In the human body, if someone has sustained even a small head or neck injury over time it can slowly start to unplug the brain-body connection and eventually lead to symptoms (aka Secondary Conditions as Dr. Max calls them) such as Migraines, vertigo, neck pain, pinched nerves, fibromyalgia, balance issues. While the proper hydration and mineral supplementation found at Elevation Hydration will obviously help a body function better with these diseases, many people become frustrated by the endless need of medications, or ups and downs of seeing a traditional chiropractor for temporary relief. It is for this reason that Dr. Max and Balance Chiropractic offer a comprehensive solution for these Secondary Conditions and many more simply by assessing and correcting your brain body connection.

How Can I Get Relief from this Chiropractor in Colorado Springs?

Fortunately, the process for working with Balance Chiropractic is very simple. Dr. Max says that it all starts with a Complimentary Consultation with him or one of their doctors to gain a thorough health history regarding your problems, goals and injuries that may have landed you where you are. If the doctor believes you are a good candidate for Foundational Correction, a comprehensive examination will be performed to locate your specific misalignment, along with measurements associated with nerve stress, muscular activity, and balance. After the data has been collected your doctor will perform a chiropractic report of findings which will compare your objective measurements to those that are considered normal and healthy. Following your report of findings, you will be given your first adjustment and follow up imaging to make sure you’re already making improvements.
