Swivel Hips?

Swivel hips is a term used to describe a person whose hips move smoothly and effective, such as a clever runner in football or an excellent dancer. Maybe your hips are not swiveling the way it should.
Are you or someone you know experencing sciatic pain, pain in your back, buttock, hip, calf, or foot? Have you been taking medication for your pain or told you need surgery?
What if I told you it may be coming from your neck? There is an alternative approach that can help heal your body safely and naturally without the use of drugs or surgery! That's right! I'm talking about Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care!

What is Sciatica and how can Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustments help reduce pain?

Your lower back, buttock, hip, calf, and foot can all be a part of sciatica, which is caused by pressure or irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back through the back of each leg and branches off down to each leg, foot, and toes.
There was a study done of a woman who was in multiple car accidents. She was experiencing sciatica pain in both legs, pain in her right knee, upper neck, lower back, numb fingers, frequent headaches, and feeling depressed. She went in for an Upper Cervical Chiropractic Evaluation and her x-rays revealed she was suffering from a misalignment in the upper neck area. 
The sciatica pain in both legs made walking difficult and she was on medication for the pain. She received a series of Upper Cervical Chiropractic adjustments over the course of a month. So what were the results you may ask? After her first treatment she no longer felt pain in her left leg. The right knee had improved about 60% and she was off of her medication. How awesome is that? 
As you can see, this study shows the benefits of how Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care can help reduce those suffering from sciatica pain along with other related health conditions that can be triggered from a misalignment in the neck.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care focuses on the alignment of the spine beginning with the head. Often, neck and head injuries from trauma or an accident may frequently lead to a misalignment of the upper neck where the spine and skull meet.
The 1st vertebrae of the spine is called your Atlas and this is important for alignment of the spine. When the Atlas tilts or twists due to a trauma or injury the weight of a persons head can shift from the center causing a misalignment and stress on the entire body.
Eventually, this may lead to tilting and twisiting of the hips. Twisiting and tiliting can cause irritation to the nerves including the sciatic nerve. That's why it's important if you've suffered from an injury or trauma that Dr. Gucciardo look at your body as a whole ... not just your hip BUT examine the body from head to toe.

Let's Wrap this Up!
