Spine Correction

The spine consists of 24 vertebrae which can move relative to each other through joints, and of 9 fused vertebrae. The spine not only supports the back, but it also contains and protects all nerves through which the brain can communicate with all muscles and organs. A disc is present between all vertebrae with exception the connection between C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis) high in the neck. Oftentimes misalignments are diagnosed in this particular area with far-reaching consequences for bodily functions. Of course, headache, pain in neck or shoulders are easy to understand, but misalignments of vertebrae can also result in complaints of the autonomous nervous system, such as arrhythmias in misalignment of the thoracic spine or chronic bowel complaints in misalignment of the lumbar spine.

The correct alignment of the entire spine is just as important for general health as is regular exercise or proper nutrition

During the first consultation and physical check-up the spine is examined for misaligments which can be corrected orthomanually, if desired. This means, that vertebrae are put back into place with manual manipulations. This is not chiropractic.
