Chiropractic & Neurology
With extensive training in clinical neurology, Dr. Redd brings a unique and in-depth understanding and perspective to chiropractic therapy in the Albuquerque NM area. Chiropractic is a neurological therapy that helps to restore the functional integrity of the nervous system. Because the nervous system controls all of the body’s functions, chiropractic can have a powerful positive effect on restoring health in a wide range of health conditions. This form of therapy has been used by healers for hundreds of years, though Chiropractic has been around as a profession only since 1897.
Chiropractic is best known for its success in treating pain problems such as headaches, muscle and joint pain, back and neck pain, but it can also have a great effect on allergies, asthma, digestive disorders, earaches, bed wetting and other disorders. Chiropractic therapy in Albuquerque NM by Dr. Redd helps many conditions aside from pain problems.
Chiropractic therapy has a direct and powerful effect on the brain, helping to restore and maintain the proper balance between the right and left hemispheres of the brain. All functions of the body are influenced by the brain and nervous system. When one side of the brain is weaker than the other a functional neurological imbalance may develop, negatively impacting overall health.
How to Check Your Own Brain Balance
You can check your own brain function balance with a simple test.
Simply march in place with your eyes closed and your arms extended forward (do not do this if you tend to lose your balance when your eyes are closed).
March in place for fifty steps. Be sure to do this in an area where you have plenty of room and nothing in front of you that you could run into or cause you to trip as most people will move forward several feet, even though they feel they are marching in the same place.
Open your eyes. If your body has rotated to either your left or right, you may have a decreased level of function of the nerves in the same hemisphere of the brain as the side you rotated to.
While the lack of body rotation is not an absolute indicator that your brain and nervous system are functioning as they should, this simple test and can indicate if a brain imbalance may be present.
