Ep­per­son Fam­ily Chi­ro­prac­tic un­winds ten­sion through us­ing a gen­tler tech­nique

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Dr. Michael Ep­per­son, D.C.

Dr. Michael Ep­per­son, D.C., chi­ro­prac­tor and owner of the new Ep­per­son Fam­ily Chi­ro­prac­tic, seeks to fight the neg­a­tive ef­fects of stress with a gen­tle chi­ro­prac­tic tech­nique known as Net­work Spinal Anal­y­sis.“Due to to­day’s con­stant en­vi­ron­men­tal stres­sors,” Dr. Ep­per­son said, “our bodies de­velop re­sponses to stress from an early age. Be­cause we are all unique in­di­vid­u­als, the ef­fects of stress are go­ing to show up dif­fer­ently in each per­son. I can treat the widest range of stress-in­duced health prob­lems with NSA.”

To­day, 75 to 90 per­cent of all doc­tor’s vis­its are for stress-re­lated ail­ments and com­plaints. The Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety and Health Ad­min­is­tra­tion has de­clared stress a haz­ard of the work­place. Stress is linked to im­paired im­mune func­tion, dif­fi­culty reg­u­lat­ing emo­tions and break down of var­i­ous body sys­tems in chil­dren and adults alike. Com­mon health prob­lems re­lated to stress phys­i­ol­ogy in­clude headaches, al­ler­gies, high blood pres­sure, di­ges­tive prob­lems, di­a­betes, arthri­tis, anx­i­ety, de­pres­sion, fa­tigue and dif­fi­culty sleep­ing.

Chi­ro­prac­tors have found that at­tend­ing to the ner­vous sys­tem is key in stay­ing healthy in a stress-filled world. “When we are faced with stress­ful sit­u­a­tions,” Dr. Ep­per­son said, “we au­to­mat­i­cally go into the ‘fight or flight’ re­sponse, which, over time, causes ten­sion to build up in our bodies.” A great deal of this ten­sion is placed on the spine. Like a spring un­der ten­sion, the spine read­ies the body to break into ac­tion. Over time, this spinal ten­sion has a de­grad­ing ef­fect on our bodies, emo­tions and minds.

Us­ing NSA, Dr. Ep­per­son can op­ti­mize the way the brain and body com­mu­ni­cate by re­leas­ing the buildup of ten­sion in the spine. A gen­tle pre­cise touch to the spine re­leases ten­sion in the nerves with­out any twist­ing, pop­ping or “crack­ing.” Be­cause of its sub­tle na­ture, Net­work Spinal Anal­y­sis can be used on chil­dren, the el­derly and ev­ery­one in be­tween.

“The main goal of NSA is to help the ner­vous sys­tem adapt to stress more ef­fec­tively,” Dr. Ep­per­son said. “When the ner­vous sys­tem is no longer in ‘fight or flight’ mode, im­mune func­tion im­proves and heal­ing oc­curs.” Peo­ple who re­ceive Net­work Care no­tice that they ex­pe­ri­ence less phys­i­cal pain, can nav­i­gate stress­ful and chal­leng­ing cir­cum­stances more eas­ily and are less anx­ious, ir­ri­ta­ble and de­pressed.

“In ad­di­tion to re­lief of health prob­lems,” Dr. Ep­per­son said, “my pa­tients re­port a resur­gence of pos­i­tive emo­tions and a zest for life. Ad­dress­ing our bodies’ ten­sion at the source is the key to re­gain­ing health and thriv­ing in to­day’s world.”

Dr. Ep­per­son grad­u­ated from Sher­man Col­lege of Chi­ro­prac­tic and is a mem­ber of the In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Chi­ro­prac­tors and Or­ga­ni­za­tions. Dr. Ep­per­son started Ep­per­son Fam­ily Chi­ro­prac­tic PC in Novem­ber 2016.
