If you Google the question, “What is the most important part of the body?”, the most common answer is the brain. Because it sends the messages to tell the body what to do it is definitely plays an important role. While that certainly is one of the body’s key organs the spine is the body’s “information highway”. When anything happens to this information delivery system those messages are stuck at home so to speak. The brain and spine make up the nervous system. Combined, they control all of the body’s cells, muscles, tissues, and organs. You only get one spine, and injury and aging cannot be reversed, so you’re definitely going to want to take care of it.

Bell’s Palsy is a temporary form of facial paralysis that occurs suddenly and is often mistaken as a sign of a stroke. While not very common, it still affects an average of 40,000 people in the United States alone. Those between the ages of 15 and 45 are most likely to experience it. Bell’s palsy most often affects just one side of the face or the other but on rare occasions, it can affect both. This partial paralysis leaves you unable to control the facial muscles giving it a drooping appearance. Read More “Bell’s palsy treatment”

Fast sciatic nerve pain relief is possible with the safe and effective chiropractic treatment options we offer here at Synergy Wellness. But first, we need to understand what it is and what it is not. Since sciatica is a very common reason for back and leg pain, it’s understandable that pain from unrelated causes is often mislabeled as sciatica. In those cases, it could stem from strained or damaged muscles or ligaments.
Sciatic nerve pain is often uncomfortable, distracting, and even debilitating. Starting in the lower back, it can extend down the leg and into the foot and toes. The source of actual sciatica pain comes from irritation of the sciatic nerve. Pressure or pinching of this sciatic nerve that originates in the L4 and L5 vertebrae in your lower back is the cause of most sciatica pain, hence its name. If you take a look at the sciatic nerve diagram, you’ll see that the sciatic nerve is the large nerve that runs down the back of each leg. Like a large river created by smaller streams, five pairs of nerves exit the spine in the lower back to form the two sciatic nerves. Read More “Sciatic nerve pain relief”
