Spinal Corrective Therapy in Upland CA

The source of each individual's problem is unique to each individual. However, with that said, as research increases and knowledge is gained, chiropractors in Upland CA begin to learn more about the human body and how it functions.

Spine Dysfunction in Upland CA

Your spine is the foundation of your health. Your spine has two major functions. Number one, it supports you and keeps you upright. How it supports you and keeps you upright is called your posture. How many times did your mother tell you to sit upright? Or stand up straight? There is a reason for that. Her inner chiropractor knew that maintaining your posture is inherently important.

The second thing it does is that it protects the spinal cord. A healthy spinal cord is important to overall health. The reason for this is that the brain sends energy down the spinal cord. The spinal cord delivers that energy from the brain to all the vital tissues and organs in your body. Each and every organ and tissue in your body are totally dependent on that energy to keep us alive and healthy.

When your spine begins to lose its range of motion or your muscles begin to tighten so much that your range of motion is restricted, in other words, you don’t feel flexible, micro-inflammation begins to develop in the joints of the spine and the nerves begin to get irritated and lose 100% function. The energy now cannot get through the nerves and the organs, tissues, and muscles at the end of those nerves will begin to become dysfunctional. Chronic dysfunction will lead to a disease process, pain, and/or loss of health.

Optimal Spine Health

As we've discussed, one of the most important structures in our bodies is the spine. It is the basis upon which everything is attached and it is home to our nervous system. We now know that there exists an ideal spinal structure.

  • From front to back, the spine should be straight.
  • From the side, there are 4 curves
  • Neck, Midback, Low back, and Sacrum

When the spine’s structure is compromised, you can expect to have some deficiencies and health problems. The health problems can be neck, midback, low back pain, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, or ankle pain. Worse could be internal organ issues (see Why Chiropractic?). And if you are an athlete or someone that values performance…you can expect performance to be compromised as well. Why? Because…Structure = Function.

What sets us apart is that if needed we can help restore your spinal posture to the best it can be. The following is an example of the gradual process and proof that it can be corrected. Just like orthodontists help you achieve that perfect smile, we can help you achieve optimal health, wellness, and performance.

In the case above, the red line indicates what a textbook normal curve should be. The black line that is drawn on the vertebra should align with the red line. Here is an example of textbook normal.

When was the last time you had your spine and nervous system checked? Do not wait till you are at pain levels that require higher levels of intervention. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to be at your best. Call and make an appointment for a consultation and exam with Dr. Castillo. You will be glad you did.
