Part 2: Thoracic Health

Many people believe that chiropractic is only for back pain. But did you know that keeping your spine properly aligned can help with many other health issues? The nerves that travel through the thoracic (upper-mid back) section of your spine control many of your vital organs, and if those nerves are getting pinched, your body can’t function in the way it was designed to. Contact our Fort Collins chiropractor office to learn more. And check out our top four symptoms caused by thoracic misalignment and how chiropractic can help them:

1. STOMACH ULCERS

Stomach ulcers are usually caused by your body either producing too much acid or not enough protective mucus on the lining of your stomach, which results in the acid eating away at the lining and creating painful sores. When a chiropractor relieves pressure on the nerves that control how much acid and mucus your stomach creates, that imbalance can be corrected!

2. BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART CONDITIONS

Many of the nerves that control your heart function are found in the thoracic region, and if those nerves are being pinched because your spine is not aligned correctly, your heart can’t get the correct signals it needs to beat strong and healthily. Many problems such as high or low blood pressure, chest pain, and different heart conditions can be corrected with chiropractic care!

3. KIDNEY PROBLEMS

The kidneys are a vital part of your body, and they work hard to keep your blood clean and get rid of waste. If your kidneys aren’t functioning properly, you might not notice any pain or symptoms for a long time, but toxic waste would be building up in your body and causing all kinds of problems! When a chiropractor relieves tension on the nerves controlling your kidney function, signals from your brain can get to the kidneys properly and keep you strong and healthy!

4. BACK, ARM, AND HAND PAIN

Only 10% of the nerves in your body are dedicated to how you feel, so if you are sensing pain, that’s a good indicator that there could be more problems going on! Chiropractic is great for relieving pain, numbness, and tingling in the back, arms, and hands, but it not only relieves pain, it promotes proper function!

With routine examinations and adjustments, your Fort Collins chiropractor will be able to begin correcting the effects of pinched nerves and misaligned vertebrae in your spine. If you have been experiencing any of these symptoms, taking medication may just be covering up the problem, not fixing it. Be sure to reach out to us here at Revelation Chiropractic we can help you begin experiencing the effects of better health immediately!
