Is it All in Your Head?

For certain cases, patients will have been told that the problem is purely psychosomatic and that it is ‘all in your head’. For certain cases it is true that mental issues will be affecting the body and causing these physical ailments, however it isn’t always the case.   Chronic health problems can start from small beginnings, such as a low impact car crash or infection, but it is about how the body deals with and adapts to it. In some cases the body may not deal adequately with the problem and it may develop more and more over time.
This can result in sensitisation of the nerves (becoming more sensitive) leading to increased susceptibility to pain or other conditions.
The blockages in the nerves can mean there is an overflow of nerve messages that pass to other areas because they cant go in their proper direction. Think of it like shoveling sand, you may move the sand out of one place, so instead it has to go somewhere else, it doesn’t just disappear! This is similar to your nerves, when the messages don’t get through, they are instead conducted in another direction, which could disrupt how the area functions. E.g. a nerve blockage in the neck could start to affect the surrounding muscles and blood vessels. Read more about Chiropractic Helping Depression and Anxiety, here. At Vitality Chiropractic, our chiropractic centre in Singapore, we do extensive testing for all of our patients to assess their condition and determine IF they are a candidate for care, not to presume it is all in your head. If so then we will make corrections (when needed) to the upper neck Subluxations (mis-alignments) to help the nervous system work properly. We have found that by removing pressure at this area it can help our patients relieve these chronic issues, or to make things more comfortable to deal with the underlying mental issues.   Think of this like going into a stressful day at work, it will be even more difficult to go into it with a migraine.
The body is always better WITHOUT a Subluxation than it is with it.
If our testing concludes this case is not appropriate for our centre then we will refer to the appropriate practitioner.   Since 2013, Upper Cervical Chiropractor, Dr. Shaan Rai helped patients achieve greater health, relocating to Singapore in 2016 and founding Vitality Chiropractic Centres. He has an impressive track record in providing relief and solutions for people who experience nerve system problems, such as headaches, migraines, dizziness, vertigo or neurological conditions. Take your life back. For a Complimentary, no-obligation call with the Doctor or to book a Consultation, call +65 8438 9550 or email help@vitalitychiropracticcentres.com to find out if we can help you at our Chiropractic Clinic in Singapore.
