Parkinson’s Disease


Parkinsons-disease
Parkinson's disease is a chronic (long-lasting) and progressive brain disorder. The condition occurs when cells that produce a vital brain chemical called dopamine are damaged or die. Dopamine transports signals to the parts of the brain that control movement and coordination. When about 80% of dopamine-producing cells die, Parkinson's disease symptoms may appear, including: shaking; stiffness; slowness of movement, and difficulty with balance and coordination. Although most people diagnosed with Parkinson's disease are over 60, approximately 15% of patients are diagnosed under the age of 50. Although the causes of Parkinson's disease are not fully known, it is thought that genetic and environmental factors play a role in the disease.

 

How NUCCA treatment can help Parkinson's

 

The exact cause of Parkinson's disease continues to be investigated, but some of the latest research shows us that accidents involving head trauma have been linked to the disease. After a whiplash-like injury has occurred to the upper cervical spine, the vertebrae can misalign and cause compression of the brainstem and surrounding nerves. When this compression occurs, there is an increased risk of Parkinson's disease symptoms, which may begin to develop months or years after such trauma.

NUCCA treatments can help Parkinson's disease by correcting the spinal misalignments caused by trauma and removing compression of the brainstem and surrounding nerves. After nerve irritation has been removed, proper communication between the brain and spinal cord and the surrounding nerves is restored.

As part of the treatment, specific imaging studies of the cervical (upper neck) region are taken to locate a misalignment of the vertebrae. Insight Subluxation Station space age technology is used to scan and measure the nervous system for possible irritation. If a misalignment has been found that affects the function of the nervous system, very specific gentle adjustments are made, by hand, to correct the misaligned vertebrae in the neck. After the adjustment has been performed, follow-up imaging studies and nervous system scans are taken to confirm a successful spinal correction.
