Do you have Segmental Dysfunction?

Segmental dysfunction leads to premature wear and tear on the structures of the spine and the nervous system, often resulting in symptoms that we call Secondary Conditions. A spine in proper alignment results in a strong and stable structure allowing optimal nervous system function and thereofre, optimal health.

Secondary Conditions

  • ADD / ADHD

Hyperactivity can often occur when there is an imbalance between the "brakes" and the "gas pedal" portions of the nervous system. When the brakes don't work, our systems can get stuck on over drive.

  • Allergies

Seasonal allergies are the immune system's "over reaction" to antigens like grass, pollen and dust. The immune system is controlled by the nerve system, so naturally, dysfunction of the nerve system can create immune system dysfunction.

  • Bed Wetting

Night time bladder control depends on a properly function nerve system to control the muscles of the bladder and sphincter. Segmental dysfunction of the sacrum can create nerve system dysfunction the often results in bed-wetting.

  • Breech Positioning

Baby's ability to turn and position herself for birth can depend on the amount of room she has to maneuver. Segmental dysfunction in mom's pelvis can constrict baby and limit her ability to turn properly.

  • Bulging / Herniated Discs

Bulging and herniated discs are a progression of disc degeneration and often secondary to Segmental Dysfunction. Misalignment of the spine accelerates wear and tear on the disc, causing discs to swell, bulge, and sometimes herniate.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

CTS occurs when the median nerve is compressed within the "tunnel" of the wrist. This results in numbness, tingling or burning in the hand. Occasionally, CTS symptoms can be due to segmental dysfunction of the neck that is causing radiating nerve pain into the hand.

  • Colic

Colic is thought to be a result of an infant experiencing discomfort, sometimes G.I. discomfort. Pediatric chiropractic care focuses on correcting segmental dysfunction caused by the birth process, resulting in a more comfortable, happy, and colic-free baby.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD)

Thin discs and bone spurs are all signs of DDD. Disc degeneration is always secondary to structural dysfunction, like how wheel alignment can cause car tires to wear unevenly. Spinal misalignment can cause some discs to wear fasters than others.

  • Digestive Disorders

Constipation, diarrhea, stomach pain and bloating can all be signs of gastrointestinal distress and dysfunction. Nervous system function directly impacts the body's ability to easily and efficiently digest food and eliminate waste.

  • Ear Infection

Structural misalignment of the upper neck, due to birth trauma, can disrupt nerve function, ultimately effecting the eustachian tube. This can lead to fluid build up in the inner ear and cause otitis media.

  • Headaches & Migraines

Tension headaches, migraines and cluster headaches can all be due to muscle tension and nervous system dysfunction. Segmental dysfunction in any part of the spine can cause or contribute to headache and migraine symptoms.

  • Heartburn / GERD

Stomach acid production is regulated by the nerve system. Nerve interference to the stomach lining, can disrupt the production of stomach acids causing symptoms of heartburn or GERD.

  • Low Back Pain

Segmental Dysfunction of the low back can result in dysfunction of the nervous system. This causes the muscles to tighten.

  • Mid-Back Pack

Segmental Dysfunction of the mid-back can result in dysfunction of the nervous system. This causes the muscles to tighten.

  • Neck Pain

Segmental Dysfunction of the neck can result in dysfunction of the nervous system. This can create pain and cause the muscles to tighten.

  • Sciatica

Sciatica is characterized by radiating pain down the leg. The sciatic nerve is a very large nerve that begins in the low back . Segmental dysfunction can interfere with the function of the sciatic nerve, resulting in pain.

  • Torticollis / Wry Neck

Torticollis is caused by the spasm of the sternocleidomastoid muscle in the neck. When this muscle spasms, the head and neck get "stuck" in a flexed position. Muscle spasm is often caused when the nerve that supplies that muscle is pinched.

  • TMJ Syndrome

Dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can cause pain, popping, clicking and sometimes headache. Segmental correction works to restore the proper alignment of the jaw, and reducing the secondary symptoms associated with TMJ.
