Your spinal column is an intricate network of interrelated nerves, bones, and soft tissues that serve as the primary pathway through which your brain communicates with other parts of your body. When this communication is interrupted or impaired due to misalignment in the spinal nerves, it causes a disruption of nerve signals and can lead to a variety of symptoms, including problems associated with Parkinson’s. Find out more about how NUCCA can help manage the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s.
What is Parkinson’s Disease and what are the symptoms
Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disorder that affects the brain and nervous system. It is caused by the degeneration of nerve cells in the brain, resulting in a disruption of chemical signals that are responsible for controlling movement, balance, and coordination. Symptoms of Parkinson’s can include tremors, stiffness or rigidity of muscles, slow movement, difficulty with balance and posture, as well as impaired speech. Our central nervous system communicates with the rest of our body by sending and receiving messages along nerve pathways. When nerve signals are blocked or impaired, it can lead to a variety of symptoms, including those associated with Parkinson’s disease.
How does NUCCA treatment help with Parkinson’s Disease
NUCCA chiropractic care is a non-invasive and gentle technique that focuses on restoring balance to the spinal column by realigning any vertebrae that may be out of place. This helps restore normal communication between your brain stem and your entire body, allowing for improved nerve function throughout the nervous system. By restoring spinal balance, NUCCA chiropractic treatment can help alleviate many of the symptoms associated with Parkinson’s, such as tremors, stiffness, or rigidity of muscles, impaired balance and coordination, and slow movement.
Your CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) system is a closed container that circulates throughout your entire spine and provides the necessary nutrition and hydration to the brain stem. When this communication between your brainstem and the rest of your body is disrupted, it can cause problems with nerve signals, leading to symptoms such as those associated with Parkinson’s. By restoring spinal misalignments, NUCCA chiropractic treatment can help restore normal communication between your brainstem and the rest of your body, allowing for improved nerve function throughout the nervous system.
What should you expect during a NUCCA treatment for Parkinson’s Disease
The NUCCA technique is a gentle, non-invasive approach to restoring spinal balance and alignment. The procedure involves taking 3-D X-ray imaging of your neck to locate any misalignments in the spine and upper neck. Once these misalignments are identified, an extremely light force is used to gently manipulate the vertebrae into their proper place. There is no cracking, just a light pressure that is applied to the vertebrae in order to gently move them back into their correct position. The procedure usually takes about 5-10 minutes and requires no recovery time.
How can you tell if NUCCA treatment is working for you
Neck pain and stiffness are often the first signs that NUCCA treatment is working for you. You may also notice a decrease in tremors, improved balance and coordination, and an increased range of motion. NUCCA care is not a one-time treatment, but rather a series of treatments that are tailored to meet your individual needs. It is important to continue with NUCCA care in order to maintain results and ensure optimal health. NUCCA chiropractors train to look for subtle changes in a patient’s overall health and well-being after each treatment. If your practitioner notices a positive change, they may adjust their plan of care to ensure you continue to experience the best possible results.
