WHY IS SPINAL HEALTH SO IMPORTANT TO US AND WHY WE SHOULD GET REGULAR CHECK UPS TO OUR HEALTH PRACTITIONER, PHYSIOTHERAPIST OR CHIROPRACTOR?

 

The spine is the body’s main support structure and plays a part in our everyday life. We need the spine to be in a good working order, so we can walk, sit, bend, move and twist while we do our everyday activity. Our spine consists of three main parts: the cervical (neck), thoracic (chest) and lumbar (lower back).

 

Having disorders or dysfunction in the spine can directly affect the rest of the body.

Spinal disorders can cause problems in the blood circulation around the body, as well as loss of sensation, muscle spasm and impairment in the nervous system. To prevent developing spinal related problems/disorders, it is important to look after your spine, especially the cervical & Lumbar spine.


If your spine is in good alignment, your entire health will be good as well, improving your day-to-day function. Muscle strains are the root of many spinal disorders. It's critical to keep the muscles surrounding the spine, particularly the cervical spine area, in good shape. The cervical spine is responsible for transmitting information input and output to and from the brain to the rest of the body. It aids in the support and mobility of the head. The cervical spine is also involved in the transport of blood to the brain. Keeping your head up and in a raised position is a good practice to prevent damages to the cervical spine. If you look after your cervical spine well, the rest of your spine will also be in a good position.



 

Patients between the ages of 25 and 65 are frequently affected by cervical spine diseases. Cervical spinal problems are very common among office and computer professionals. It's caused by wear and tear on the bones and muscles, which results in disc displacement and degeneration in the neck. Neck and shoulder pain are common in people with cervical spine disorders. Some people may get headaches that originate at the back of their neck. Some people may also have limb and finger discomfort or numbness. As previously stated, a bad cervical spine can have a negative impact on a person's everyday life, thus it's critical to take good care of it.

 


 

 


WHAT ROLE DOES ACUPUNCTURE HAVE ON THE SPINE & HEALTH OF THE HUMAN BODY?

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat cervical cancer in a variety of methods.

 

Acupuncture and Tui Na are two of them (a traditional Chinese medical massage). Acupuncture has been shown to be particularly successful in the treatment of cervical spine diseases in studies.


 

By placing small needles into certain acu-points to stimulate qi and improve blood circulation around the body, acupuncture can help treat cervical spine diseases. Acupuncture can assist to clear the mind, increase blood flow to the brain, promote nerve function, and alleviate pain. Tui Na, on the other hand, can assist patients in relaxing their bodies and minds while receiving a massage. The massage therapist will strive to relax the soft tissue near the neck and shoulder area at the start of the massage. They will then work slowly into the deep tissue areas, with the goal of promoting healing and improve blood circulation around the body.

 

The deficiency of qi and poor blood circulation in the body, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine, causes discomfort. It is necessary for qi and blood to circulate freely throughout the body in order to be healthy. Pain will result if any of these are blocked. Tui Na and acupuncture can assist to relieve discomfort.

 

Cervical spine problems are linked to this. It also aids in the circulation of qi and blood throughout the body, ensuring that it reaches the areas where it is most required.
