5 Indicators You May Need to Visit a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs

Every year, millions of people seek out chiropractic adjustments. Most chiropractors do a great job and aim to reduce short term aches and pains by popping, twisting and cracking the spine based off pain, range of motion and tight musculature. At Balance Chiropractic (Chiropractor in Colorado Springs), our goal is never to simply increase range motion or temporarily relieve pain. Our ONLY FOCUS is the reduction of Foundational Shifts in the spine. We do so without ever popping, twisting or cracking. Our alternative methods require 4 objective measurements to see whether or not you qualify as a candidate for our care in our office.

Briefly, we will shed light on how some of the most common symptoms (AKA secondary conditions) may be due to a Foundational Shift in the spine. Usually the decision to see a traditional chiropractor is obvious – for instance, waking up with a “crick in your neck” due to sleeping in an unusual way, or lifting something heavy with improper form. However, when traditional methods fail, there are several secondary conditions that often resolve after correcting one’s foundation.

Common Conditions that Foundational Correction has Helped People With

Here are several Secondary Conditions that should provoke a consultation with a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs. They include:

Headaches can have many different causes. For headache and migraine sufferers that have ruled out hormonal imbalances, abnormal blood pressure, dehydration and high-altitude oxygen deprivation… A Foundational Shift may be present. If the spinal bones nearest the brain shift, it may place abnormal pressure on bundles of nerves that control sensations in the head and neck. In addition, Foundational Shifts may contribute to headaches and migraines due to blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid pressure build up within the skull. Correction of Foundational Shifts may allow the brain to drain therefore reducing pressure buildup and therefore reducing the secondary condition of headaches and migraines.

Balance Chiropractic has helped many people suffering with dysautonomia in Colorado Springs. Dysautonomia is a miscommunication between the autonomic nerve system and the brain. Patients often experience fainting, headaches, tachycardia, high and low blood pressure, stomach troubles and possibly breathing issues. The autonomic nerve system is heavily influenced by something called the vagus nerve which goes directly from the brain, to the heart, lungs, and stomach amongst other vital organs. If the foundation of the human spine has shifted to disrupt vagus nerve signals, dysautonomia may occur. Often patients seek out a dysautonomia doctor in Colorado Springs but are frustrated when the only course of action rely on medication. Balance Chiropractic in Colorado Springs precisely tunes the brain body connection without ever popping twisting or cracking to help people living with dysautonomia and POTs in Colorado Springs.

As a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Balance Chiropractic has helped many people looking for a fibromyalgia doctor in Colorado Springs. Fibromyalgia is a very common secondary condition to head injuries and whiplash. Fibromyalgia usually has patients feeling tired, tender, depressed and fragile. There is a large correlation with the onset of fibromyalgia and injuries such as whiplash or concussions. This is because when the foundation of the human spine shifts it can obstruct the brain body connection. When the brain body connection is disrupted, the body will often receive inappropriate signals from the brain. Muscles often become extra sensitive, tender and tight. When musculature overworks, it uses vital energy which can take away from the daily energy a patient has to spend doing the things they want to do! Often time when people are looking for a fibromyalgia doctor in Colorado Springs they are upset because the traditional recommendation revolves around medication. As a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs, our office helps people dealing with fibromyalgia by finely tuning their upper neck to optimize the brain body connection.

Did you know that dizziness, balance and vertigo issues may be a result of a Foundational Shift to the upper neck? Many patients undergo extensive testing of their visual, proprioceptive, and inner ear functions after experiencing prolonged outs of dizziness, balance and vertigo issues. When traditional treatments don’t get the desired results, Balance Chiropractic in Colorado Springs analyzes and corrects the upper neck (as needed) with extreme caution and precision due to the upper neck’s relationship with something called the “Vestibular Nuclei.” The vestibular nuclei is a bundle of nerve-groups housed within the upper neck. This nerve group serves as a relay center for informational signals coming from the inner ear, and going up or down towards the rest of the body. If these bundles of nerves are irritated, a person will commonly experience secondary conditions like dizziness, balance and vertigo. When clinically necessary, Balance Chiropractic refers and co-manages patients to the appropriate provider for complimentary vestibular, visual or proprioceptive treatments.

If your arms, fingers, legs, toes or face goes numb… you just might have a Foundational Shift in your spine. Often times, numbness and tingling (secondary conditions) are an indicator of poor blood and neurological flow to an area. Usually, the Foundation of one’s body will be originally shifted due to an injury long forgotten (car accident, sporting accident, slip and fall etc.), if not corrected, the Foundational Shift will generally become worse over time. It is no different than hitting a series of pot holes that misalign the wheels of your vehicle, if left uncorrected would you expect more or less vehicle problems over time?

Balance Chiropractic has helped many people looing for help from a Trigeminal Neuralgia doctor in Colorado Springs. Trigeminal Neuralgia is known as the “suicide disease” because it is supposedly one of the worst pains ever. Patients usually present with burning, stabbing, or electric pain in their face, jaw, teeth, and/or ears. On top of this, sufferers of trigeminal neuralgia in Colorado springs usually have headaches and dizziness/vertigo also. Trigeminal neuralgia usually happens due to head and neck trauma that can start after a car accident, sporting accident, or dental injury. TN hurts so bad due to the electrical branches of the TN nerve being irritated. For those with physical trauma relating to the neck, TN is often related to pressure being placed on an area of the spinal cord called the Trigeminal Nucleus which has fibers that loop from the brain to the neck then to the jaw/face and vice versa. Often times patients seek out a trigeminal neuralgia doctor in Colorado springs only to be disappointed when the common recommendation is drugs and surgery. As a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Balance Chiropractic precisely tunes the brain body connection without ever popping twisting or cracking to help people living with Trigeminal Neuralgia in Colorado Springs.

Massages are fantastic, and if possible, we’d get one every day! However, when muscles are always tight for little or seemingly no reason, a foundational shift of utmost neck bones may be an underlying cause. When we look at the physiology of muscle function, there are only two actions: contraction and relaxation. A massage works by relaxing muscles using an OUTSIDE-IN approach… Massage Therapists or Traditional Chiropractors will stimulate tight muscles so eventually they relax. For short term relief this is great, however, for individuals with chronically tight muscles, we must consider an INSIDE-OUT approach. Q: All muscles are controlled by what? A: Nerves! Q: All nerves come from where? A: The spinal cord! Q: The signals that nerves use to control muscle function, come from where? A: THE BRAIN! At balance Chiropractic we focus on the spinal bones closest to the brain because, if those top spinal bones have shifted, abnormal signals may be sent to your muscles that never seem to relax!

As a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Balance Chiropractic has helped many people with TMJD. TMJD is also known as Tempormandibular Joint Dysfunction and is where the jaw experiences pain, popping or other discomforts. People looking for a TMJD doctor in Colorado Springs often find our office due to a referral from their dental professional. When the foundation of the human body shifts it can put pressure on an area called the trigeminal nucleus. This nucleus controls all musculature of the jaw and if misfunctioning due to pressure, may send faulty signals to the musculature of the jaw creating pain. The common TMJD doctor in Colorado Springs will prescribe things like oral appliances or medication. As a Foundational Chiropractor in Colorado Springs, Balance Chiropractic helps patients with TMJD by precisely tuning the spinal area around the trigeminal nucleus without ever popping twisting or cracking. If you or a loved one are looking for a TMJ doctor in Colorado Springs, we offer complimentary consultations to see if we can help!

Research shows that over 80% of people will experience significant back pain in their life time. For most, it is a short term incidence relieved by normal means, but for others it can last much longer and require a different approach. At Balance Chiropractic we generally do not accept patients for acute bouts of back pain. We focus on helping people that have usually exhausted many or all the usual back pain treatments. When medication, traditional chiropractic, physical therapy, injections and surgery have failed, the root cause of back pain may be a shift in your body’s foundation.

If you are experiencing one or more of these problems, don’t hesitate to call our office at (719) 265-0115 and set up a complimentary consultation With Balance Chiropractic in Colorado Springs. Contact us at Balance Chiropractic for practical advice from an experienced chiropractor Colorado Springs residents can depend on.
