Chiropractic care is generally known to help people overcome “Back” or “Neck” pain. While this is true, it is also diminutive to the actual scope of chiropractic.  I suffered for years with daily heartburn that was “cured” through chiropractic.  The first chiropractic patient was “cured” of his hearing loss through chiropractic.  These stories and more are innumerable in the chiropractic profession.

Just last month a young woman (14 yoa) came to my office.  Her mother had taken this young woman to several doctors visits and specialists over 2 1/2 years for her stomach/vomiting/nausea/insomnia causing intestinal problems.  They were all stumped.  Even the most powerful medicines, the latest research and most innovative techniques could not “cure” this young woman of her malady.  Finally (as is usually the case) surgery was brought up as another possible “cure”.  This wise mother then decided to pursue another course in the hopes of saving her young daughter from such a destiny.

I analyzed this young woman and found that, due to trauma in her past, she had a pinched nerve in her neck!  It just so happened that this pinched nerve was most probably affecting a specialized nerve in our body called the VAGUS nerve.  What does this nerve do?  It controls the (parasympathetic) function of our internal organs, or, in other words, this young lady’s stomach, intestines, etc.!

Here’s what I did.  I adjusted her upper neck, taking the pressure off of her nerve.  After the first adjustment, the young lady felt no difference.  However, it made sense to her and her mother that this was going to take time.  And it did take time, about 3 1/2 weeks of coming into my office 3 times a week.  Her problems are now gone, and have continued to be to this day.

This young lady did not come to me for low back pain or neck pain.  She came because maybe, just maybe there was another, less invasive, natural way for her to be “cured”.  And the great news is that there was!  This is not an isolated, solitary case, it happens all  the time!  Bottom line, go and see what chiropractic can do for you!  Maybe, just maybe, you’ll find your cure!


Can chiropractic care really help improve my depression?

Dr. Huseboe’s thoughts:
There is no question that injuries to the body are stored throughout a person’s life. Not only does this cause the chemical/neurotransmitter imbalance mentioned, but it creates a weakness in the body where the injury occurred. In other words, stress, whether it is physical, mental, chemical or emotional, will be stored in that area of trauma.
Be aware that by adjusting that area of stress your body will release that stored, pent-up energy, whether it is physical, emotional, mental or chemical. And, that is a GOOD thing, you are cleaning your system and on your way to good health.

Numerous studies have shown that regular chiropractic adjustments can help improve symptoms of depression and bipolar disorder. But how does that work? According to Chiropractic America, one of the triggers of depression and related mood disorders is past physical trauma. Experts believe that depression may be caused by an imbalance of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that relays messages in the brain. Recent research has shown that this imbalance can sometimes be caused by mild concussive injuries to the head, neck or upper back. In such cases, the injury can lead to mood disorders – sometimes immediately, but other times occurring years later. By visiting the chiropractor for adjustments, patients may be able to reverse the effects of the injury. This is possible because chiropractic care helps reduce irritation to injured nerves in the brain and spinal cord. It’s important to remember that there is no one singular cause for depression, and…
