Wait - What?
Yes, you read correctly. See your chiropractor.
If you have already visited your ophthalmologist for an eye exam, you know that they are able to diagnose eye problems as well as prescribe glasses or contacts to correct vision problems, but did you know that your Chiropractor may actually be able to help improve your eye health, naturally?
It may surprise you to know that a misalignment in the spinal column, known as a subluxation when in the neck region, can have a negative impact on eye function. If the nerves in the neck are blocked it can withhold the needed blood circulation that promotes optimal function of the eyes.
Blockages and inflammation of the nerves in the neck can result in symptoms such as double vision, watery eyes, and even a reduction of the clarity of sight. It is possible with adjustments to correct these subluxations and return proper blood supply and nerve currents. When that happens, the results can be amazing. Headaches clear, eyes stop watering, vision returns to singular and actual measurable vision may improve.
Results may be noticeable on the first adjustment or it may require a course of treatment depending on the patient, how long the condition has existed, the patients' overall health, as well as a number of other factors.
Chiropractic has been shown to benefit those even dealing with more difficult and advanced eye issues such as glaucoma. Recurrent chiropractic treatments can help to restore the visual field in still working but diminished eyes.
How it works:
Cervical sympathetic nerves are associated with the upper cervical spine. It is believed that sympathetic nerve fibers can become irritated by pressure from fluid buildup causing pressure to build and sight to lessen. Spinal adjustments help to alleviate the build-up of pressure as well as constriction of blood flow. When that is released, vision often can begin to return.
