Chiropractic Realignment and Adjustments El Paso, Texas

Chiropractic believes that optimal health comes from having a healthy nervous system, particularly a healthy spinal column.

Time, work, school, and everyday living means movement. And like anything that moves over and over again, at some point it's going to get stuck or slip out of place. When the spine's vertebrae become misaligned, pressure begins to press on the nerves that come out of the spinal cord. This is called a chiropractic subluxation and requires chiropractic realignment.





Chiropractors use a variety of techniques to mobilize the spinal discs so they can move freely along with returning them back into place and in their proper positions.

These techniques are called spinal manipulations/adjustments.

During an adjustment, the vertebra is released or set free from the misaligned position and put back into the proper position in the spine's column.

Adjustments allow the body to heal and maintain homeostasis.
Chiropractors are trained in a variety of adjustment techn…

Home Treatment for Neck Pain El Paso, Texas

Healing takes place at home.

Q: Recently diagnosed with a bulging disc at C5-C6, is there anything I can do at home to relieve my pain?
— El Paso, TX.

A: Great question because anyone that has woken up with a stiff neck can relate. This is the most common area of herniation in the neck. It is highly susceptible to regular wear and tear but poor neck posture, like looking down at a phone for too long and improper motion mechanics can also be a cause.

Taking care of yourself without having to go to the doctor is very important and it is critical to learn proper healing methods, and techniques.

Healthcare professionals will say that most of the healing takes place at home.

There are various ways to reduce pain at home, but remember that there is a point when symptoms do warrant professional medical attention.



Good news Bulging and herniated discs typically heal within six months — and less than 10% ever need surgery.
Non-surgical treatment for cervical bulging discs is usually enough to rel…

Functional Neurology: Gluten-Related Brain Health Issues

Many research studies have arguably analyzed how gluten can affect the nervous system. However, people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity have demonstrated a variety of symptoms, ranging from headaches and brain fog to autoimmune disease. Moreover, brain health issues, such as anxiety, depression, and migraines, among others, are also common symptoms in people with gluten sensitivity or intolerance.

Gluten ataxia, a severe autoimmune disorder, affects a small percentage of the population. Evidence suggests that brain health issues, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, may also be affected by gluten. In the following article, we discuss several common gluten-related brain health issues.

Do you feel like grain consumption causes the development of any symptoms? Are you on a 100% gluten-free diet? Diet and environmental factors can affect brain health.

A 2013 research study demonstrated that d…

Functional Neurology: The Brain and the Gut Microbiome Connection

Approximately 100 trillion bacteria are found in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract or gut, including Bacteroides, Bifidobacterium, Faecalibacterium, and Ruminococcus, among many others. These microscopic organisms, known as the microbiome, help digest food, process nutrients, and produce immune molecules which helps heal injuries and fight inflammation. Surprisingly, however, the gut microbiome plays a much more fundamental role in the brain.

Although the brain and the gastrointestinal tract seem to be two independent parts of the human body, they are actually connected through a series of biochemical communications between nerve cells and immune pathways, known as the gut-brain axis. Bacteria create neuroactive compounds in the gut, including up to 90 percent of all of our neurotransmitter serotonin, which ultimately helps control our mood. Moreover, the brain also sends signals to the digestive system, by way of instance, to stimulate or suppress digestion. In the article below, we …
