• Spinal Adjustments Ease Addiction

The Limbic System is an area of the brain that is located near the brainstem but also extends into the upper cervical spine. The limbic system of the brain is precisely the region that gets hijacked by drugs of abuse, thereby perpetuating patients cravings to keep using these drugs. The atlas bone (C1) at the top of the neck is what protects the limbic system and the brain stem. Safe, painless adjustments to the upper cervical spine bones can help normalize the brain's limbic system. Additionally the brain is bathed in CSF fluid and C1 changes can hinder the drainage of this fluid. C1 spinal adjustments are now being studied not only to help those with addiction but other neurological illnesses but that it may also help prevent neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease.
