A person’s neck is vulnerable to conditions that create pain and restrict motion because it supports the weight of their head which on average weighs about the same as a bowling ball. Neck pain can be the result of an accident but can also result from spinal misalignment and repetitive motions. Some of the common causes of neck pain include:
Dr. Mark utilizes Network Spinal Analysis (NSA for short) which he employs a gentle touch to the skin along specific areas where the protective covering of the spinal cord connects to the spine. NSA helps the brain to recognize and release stress and tension stored from unresolved past or current traumas to clear pathways. With the pathways clearer, your body and brain communicate more effectively with each other which promotes your natural healing response and overall wellbeing.
Network Spinal Analysis is a gentle and body-honoring method of adjusting the spine. The treatment involves 2 steps. First, Dr. Mark releases the soft tissue structures that pull, twist, and bind the spine. Releasing these soft tissues, including the muscles and the tissue sheath, called the meninges, that wraps all muscles, provides the patient with a relief from the tension and pain held within the muscles. The additional benefit of releasing the soft tissue before making any adjustments is that the body is warm and receptive to movement. This means that the second step, where Dr. Mark makes gentle adjustments to the spine, carefully correcting any misalignments can be extraordinarily gentle, without any twisting or cracking or popping noises. Many patients seek chiropractic treatment because of pain and this gentle method not only relieves pain but does so in a gentle way that honors the body while correcting alignment issues.
