Post-traumatic stress disorder

I started going to Dr. Steve Gardner of Easy Spine less than a year ago looking for an alternative way to help me cope with panic attacks. I did not want to become dependent on prescriptions and started making lifestyle changes to help lessen the chances of panic episodes. Before coming to Easy Spine, I tried other alternative therapies such as acupuncture, which was not very effective for me. I also tried various herbal concoctions and teas, some of which made my condition worse. I continued to look for alternatives knowing that I am not the only one looking for the same thing. During one of my many searches on the internet, I came across NSA Care and an article describing the very nature of my experiences with panic attacks and how NSA Care has helped that person. At first, I was very skeptical but continue to further investigate the validity of the article which lead me deeper into NSA Care. My next step was to find a care provider near me. This is where I met Dr. Steve Gardner of Easy Spine. First of all, Dr. Gardner is very a understanding and caring person. I am very please with his professionalism and dedication to the practice of NSA Care. I have been under his care for a little over six month and what can I say. I am amazed by the results so far. Not only has the episodes of panic attacks gotten less and less but the severity of it has gotten less as well. I now have more confidence to manage any future occurrences. NSA Care is also helping me to become more of myself by helping to deal with other issues that I have been carrying around for a long time, some of which could have very well contributed to my condition. This style of care may not be for everyone and you have to be patient with it to start seeing results. My personal response to NSA care has been very positive and I cannot wait to see how much more I can benefit from it. If anyone is looking for alternatives to healing and becoming a better person, I would highly recommend that you to seek out NSA Care at Easy Spine with Dr. Gardner. He has helped me a lot and may do the same for you.

I was referred me to network chiropractic for my anxiety. When I found Dr. Steve, I felt his genuine care for my health and well-being. My initial visit, he examined my back, posture, daily emotions, and an adjustment. After the initial examination, I felt more present in the world, and my anxiety was a lot less. During my second visit, I felt the need to have proper posture, and by the third visit, I was standing tall and a lot more present in the world. My anxiety is still there, but it isn’t taking control as it did in the past.

Thank you Dr. Steve, for everything and I always look forward to seeing you every week.

Sometimes trauma, as you may already know, can be so extreme an encroachment on your safety, survival, and dignity, that some form of the experience relentlessly persists through nightmares, flashbacks, and the like. It’s as if the event is on automatic replay, desperately searching for resolution, closure, and peace of mind.

Your nervous system, during such an event, was on overload. At that moment, you underwent an onslaught of sensory, life-changing information that could not have been fully absorbed or made sense of. And now it seems to have a life of its own, waiting to somehow be emotionally absorbed. Since the event cannot be undone and is now part of your life experience, it has to find some way for ultimately becoming a non-violating part of your total being.

In a way, it’s as if the trauma needs to play itself out without being re-lived. If only the experience could be digested in a peaceful, meaningful manner, allowing you to regain your composure without having to deny your experience. Otherwise, it may still feel like you’re in a bind, as if gripped by the event. Physically and emotionally.

NSA chiropractic doctors find that persistent, physical tension patterns in the back and neck, i.e., along the spine and torso, fit the pattern of being a mirror of events that still trigger us to this day. Apparently, the nervous system acquires a software modification for any experience that threatens our survival. Whether that be physical survival, or sometimes, simply the identity of who we are.

Yet inside that stuck tension is a huge amount of energy ready to bring meaningful closure, resolution, and vitality back into your life.

Sometimes, maybe even most of the time, while being adjusted under Network Care, you’ll just be feeling your body, your back especially, not even knowing what’s playing out. Most often, it will feel very good, but different. Just enough to be interesting. Feelings will come and go. Perhaps not uncommonly, some of the feelings may seem like they belong to distant memories. Experienced like you would feel the memory of an old friend. Yet oftentimes not knowing what memory the feeling was associated with. Not that it will matter, as the memory is now coming up within a reassuring context.

Under Network Care, fostering a growing sense of safety and inner peace must be unfailingly and deeply honored. The Network chiropractor is comprehensively trained to know exactly how to proceed towards that end. It’s actually our practice to be completely absorbed in this – in mind and spirit, along with the unspoken language of posture and tone of voice.

That being said, although post-traumatic stress disorder is not the same thing as anxiety, it’s still the same explanation, as far as the basic mechanics are concerned, for how Network Spinal Analysis Care is arguably the most powerful method of treatment for both conditions.
