Network Spinal Analysis
New Day Chiropractic Care | Chicago, Lincoln Square, Northcenter, Ravenswood
Many individuals carry tension throughout their bodies that has come from stresses they have encountered throughout their lives. This tension coming from the spine and the neck can remain there long after the stressful event has passed. People often describe it as a general sense of discomfort, although they cannot pinpoint where it originates. They often find that stiff necks, restricted movement, backaches, headaches, soreness, and poor posture are not resolved through stretching, massage, exercise, and the like. This is because the nervous system-- the brain, spine, and nerves are responsible for creating these issues and must be addressed directly. Network Spinal Analysis addresses these issues by helping to release and reorganize this accumulation of tension in the body through the use of a series of light and precise touches along the spine by a Network Care practitioner. Every Network Care practitioner is a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic.
In addition to using Network Care, Dr. Katie also works with clients on self care techniques to promote brain-body connection and deep, beneficial breaths. Natural breathing patterns tend to be disrupted when a person's nervous system has been chronically holding patterns of tension in the body. Breathing often becomes shallow and restricted, as the person only utilizes a small portion of the body's natural breathing capacity. The practitioner makes use of Somato Respiratory Integration (SRI) breathing techniques to help the person remove and release the unnatural breathing patterns and any tensions in the body. As a result of the Network Care and the SRI breath work exercises, clients find their bodies are better able to heal themselves.
To begin the process, the patient and Dr. Katie sit down and go over the complete health history, as this provides information crucial to the process. A spinal exam is then conducted to determine the amount and types of tension in the spine and body. Only when these two steps have been taken can recommendations for care be made. Although patients often experience a difference after only one session of care, the best results come over time because it takes time for the body to make changes.
Clients frequently find their bodies moves spontaneously during a session of care as the nervous system reprograms and tension in the body is reorganized. In addition, clients often exprience emotional releases during the process of receiving care. Clients of any age benefit from Network Care as a form of wellness care, from the infant to the elderly. Children are especially receptive to Network Care as their systems are more adaptable and have much less build up of tension patterns than most adults. Because this care is completely gentle and safe, it is also ideal for pregnant women.
