Cranial Adjustments

Sadly, pain is all too common. Even if you’re not in pain right now, at some point in the future you’ll likely have to contend with various aches. The good news is that you can work with a chiropractor to secure pain relief not only right now but also in the future. If you live in or near Utica, NY, and need cranial adjustments, contact La Barbera Family Chiropractic. Dr. Joseph La Barbera is an expert pain relief specialist and has used cranial adjustments and other techniques to reduce and even eliminate pain.

Cranial Adjustments as a Form of Chiropractic Care

Many people think of chiropractors as back doctors. While chiropractors often do work with the spine, they can work with other tissues and parts of your body. For example, with cranial adjustments, a chiropractor can work directly with the muscles, joints, bones, coverings of the brain and spinal cord, and other tissues in your face and head.

Using gentle amounts of pressure, a chiropractor can work to ensure that the many tissues in your face and cranium are in proper alignment. This could reduce the occurrence of tension headaches and facial neuralgias, eliminate jaw pain, allow the free flow of cerebral spinal fluid that is necessary to bring nutrients to the spinal cord and carry toxins away, encourage healthy breathing, and otherwise promote your health.

Every part of your body is complex. However, the cranium is one of the most complicated parts of your body. Various tissues are connected to one another and a seemingly small issue can throw everything out of alignment. For example, infants can be born with misshaped skulls, (a condition called plagiocephaly), with implications for parts of their brains that are being subjected to pressure and the functioning of the central nervous system. Furthermore, misaligned cranial bones can put pressure on the connective tissue surrounding the skull, resulting in an increase in headaches.

When it comes to pain, there is no panacea. However, chiropractic care is one of the most flexible and versatile approaches to pain treatment. What to learn more? It’s time to contact Dr. La Barbera at La Barbera Family Chiropractic. He can provide cranial adjustments in Utica, NY.

Here’s Why Chiropractic Care Should Be Your First Choice

What do you normally do when you have a headache? While the answer may vary from person to person, using over-the-counter pain medications is one of the most common ways to secure pain relief. The problem is that these medications only paper over your aches. Once the medicine wears off, your headache could return. Some folks simply take more medication, but this can fuel dependency and subject you to the long-term wear of side effects.

With chiropractic care you may be able to resolve the problems that are triggering pain signals. If you’d like to try cranial adjustments in Utica, NY, you can work with Dr. La Barbera. Want to get started? Simply call 315 724 0368 to reach La Barbera Family Chiropractic.
