​  9 Facts about Misalignments of the Spine
 
  1. For many people a stressful birth process may have been the cause of cervical instability and misalignment.

  2. Traumas such as whiplash or falls may also cause or further accentuate misalignment of the cervical vertebrae. For many it is merely poor posture (sitting at a computer) for months or years that causes fixated misalignment in the spine: "tech neck".

  3. It has been found that spinal misalignment is responsible for a number of disorders. Even problems in the lower body, like low back pain, lumbar disc herniation, and sciatica can have underlying causes in the cervical vertebrae. The entire spine is one unit, and vice versa, if it is misaligned at the bottom, it will compensate in the upper spine as well.

  4. Conventional medicine does not usually consider misalignment of the vertabrae a possible cause of disorder in a patient. As a result this problem usually goes undiagnosed.

  5. Failure to diagnose the problem is due to the fact that misalignment of the vertebrae is not looked at by many medical doctors, only fractures and severe dislocations are detected.

  6. Leaving aside severe dislocations of the vertebrae requiring surgery, conventional medicine offers no treatment to correct the misalignment of the cervical vertebrae.

  7. Often after the very first few re-alignment/correction treatments, patients begin feeling results.

  8. Many consider adjusting the neck area as dangerous. Based on 30 yrs of experience, Dr. Semph chooses from extremely gentle and low force chiropractic techniques such as instrument adjusting, light manual or table-assisted, to carefully re-align cervical vertebrae.

  9. All age groups from newborns to 90 year old patients can benefit from chiropractic care.
