In a building, if one part of that framework is out of alignment, it will affect the rest of the structure. The same is true of your body. If one part of your spine is improperly positioned, you could experience severe pain in your back, as well as your limbs, neck, and other areas. During neuro-spinal analysis, your doctor will apply manual pressure to tense areas along your spinal cord. He or she will also conduct a range of tests using state-of-the-art X-ray machines to pinpoint the source of your pain. Therefore, neuro-spinal analysis can be a highly effective back pain treatment with long-lasting results. To learn more about neuro-spinal analysis, contact our Frisco practice today. The team at Frisco Spine offers advanced diagnoses and treatments for patients who suffer from chronic pain.
An Introduction to the Neuro-spinal System
Your spine is comprised of 33 vertebrae, each separated by a soft cushioning disc. Vertebrae are separated into five different areas: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum and coccyx. Ligaments and muscles connect the vertebrae, allowing a wide range of motion. Each vertebra also has four facet joints, which contribute to your spine’s flexibility. Your vertebrae protect a long column of nerves. These nerves connect to your brain, giving sensation and movement to every part of your body.
What Is a Neuro-spinal Analysis?
Often back pain occurs because your head or vertebrae are in an unnatural position. As a result, this can put a lot of strain on your muscles, and you could experience constant back pain. In some cases, anxiety can exacerbate your existing tension. A neuro-spinal analysis will reveal spinal imbalance and the causes of your chronic discomfort. First, your doctor will examine your spine, looking for misalignment and neurological tension. Often, he or she will conduct a thermal analysis. After taking a base reading of your body’s normal temperature, your doctor will measure the temperature along your spine. An abnormally high reading can reveal neuromuscular tension.
During your neuro-spinal analysis, we may also use computed tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), electroconductive tests, and X-rays to evaluate the health of your spine. These advanced tests can reveal changes in bone structure, the vertebrae, and discs. Once we have completed your neuro-spinal analysis, we can develop a more targeted, effective treatment plan to reduce your chronic neck, back, or body pain.
Benefits of Neuro-spinal Analysis
Neuro-spinal analysis is a revolutionary approach to back pain. Many practitioners will focus on “secondary conditions.” They try to reduce pain without addressing its fundamental cause. Neuro-spinal analysis actually targets the primary reason for your discomfort. Thus, it can provide more comprehensive and long-lasting results. In addition, neuro-spinal analysis is all-natural and will stimulate your body’s own healing processes. Thus, with neuro-spinal analysis, you can often avoid surgery and other more invasive treatments.
