The Critical Cervical Curve

The Critical Cervical
From the back, your
spine should be in alignment. A sideways curve is called scoliosis and can
produce nerve interference, affecting organs and tissues controlled and
regulated by the nerves emerging from the spinal column in that area.
But from the side we
want to see four curves. Because the nerves passing through the neck influence
the entire body, the spinal curve in the neck is especially important. Besides
having uncompromised nerve flow to and from the body, the normal, graceful
forward curve is essential so you can turn to the right and left to look over
your shoulder.
If you know someone
who is far too dependent upon their rear view mirrors (or their car’s back up
camera), or who tends to turn their upper body to look at you, encourage them
to give us a call.
A thorough examination
can determine if they’ve lost their cervical curve and whether they’re a good
candidate for chiropractic care.
