The pressure in the nervous system that results from a subluxation (spinal misalignment) can play a significant part in the development of digestive issues. The digestion and absorption of important nutrients and liquids can be hindered by the pressure a subluxation causes. Chiropractic adjustments align the spine and is used to treat subluxations.
Chiropractic treatment helps boost immune system, thus aiding the body in fighting off colds more quickly. Chiropractic adjustments, especially in the upper cervical area in the neck, helps relieve tension in the brainstem and allows for sinus passages in the head to drain. As an aid to the required antibiotics, this release of tension and passage for for sinus fluids greatly helps speed up recovery from sinus and congestion issues.
Through a physical examination and reviewing a patient’s medical history, doctors can work on discovering the source of numbness or tingling their patient may be experiencing (further evaluations may also be necessary). Often a doctor may find that their patent can benefit from chiropractic care. Conservative chiropractic care can often treat most cases of numbness and tingling.

Chiropractic is the philosophy, art, and science describing the communication between the brain and the tissues, organs, and systems of the body. The brain controls and coordinates all actions of the body. If the communication between the brain and the body is interrupted or altered by a pinched nerve or vertebral subluxation then we may feel pain, stiffness, burning, stabbing, throbbing, tingling, or numbness just to name a few symptoms. A subluxation describes stuck vertebrae (or backbones) or the altered motion of those vertebrae, which can pinch the delicate nerves of the back causing painful symptoms. Chiropractors adjust these vertebrae (bones) in the back to restore normal motion and decompress the nerves that were pinched. Thus decreasing pain and restoring health.
The Chiropractic Story
The Chiropractic story begins with the roman doctor Hippocrates. In his written works he describes adjusting the neck to relieve symptoms to the neck and hand. In China and the Roman Empire “Bone Setters” were on the battlefield keeping the soldiers alive and fighting. In 1895 in the United States, Dr. Daniel David Palmer was examining the relationship between the spinal anatomy/neurology and a person’s body. In his office, he “adjusted” his first patient; a hearing impaired janitor named Harvey Lillard. Dr. Palmer adjusted vertebrae (bones) in Mr. Lillard’s neck. The result of this adjustment was the restoration of Mr. Lillard’s hearing, the first chiropractic “miracle” of many to come. Thus began the chiropractic profession.

More about Espinosa Family Chiropractic:
My back hurt constantly and I would have shooting pains and numbness in both my legs. This was affecting my way of life because I was limited in many areas: I couldn’t work out at a fitness center or play golf regularly. Before I began care at Espinosa Family Chiropractic I used to go get occasional adjustments but it wasn’t until I began care with Dr. Espinosa and followed my plan that I noticed a change within 3 weeks. I noticed that I had less pain, a greater range of motion, and some of the numbness was gone. After two years of treatment I now golf regularly, and work out a lot. I occasionally have back pain and the numbness comes back when I stand in one place. I recommend chiropractic care to anyone who wants to live a full life – I recommend this because I have enjoyed two years of pain free living. Now that I am feeling better I love to hike, golf, and work out. I look forward to many years of healthy fun activities. – Brian B.
When my infant daughter was born we discovered she had some nerve issues. She developed torticollis (head stuck in rotation). Molly could not straighten her neck having to tilt her head to the right. We visited our pediatrician who told us to monitor her. I spoke to Dr. Ray about Molly’s condition and decided to have him start treating her. Molly began straightening her head and started enjoying adjustments, going from painful cries to big smiles and giggles. Now Molly is able to keep her head and neck straight and flexible.There is no other person I would trust more with me or my family’s health than Dr. Espinosa. – Kyle G.
Dr. Espinosa is a D.C. that relates to my personal, sports, anatomical, medical, holistic and even spiritual needs. I sought chiropractic care because I reached a point at which I could not stand or walk for five minutes at a time. During a Hawaiian vacation, I spent half an hour lying supine on the beach…because I could not get up! Dr. Espinosa helped me recover, through adjustments, reminding me to stretch, and exercise my core and hamstrings daily. After the first adjustment, I noticed improvement, along with pain reduction and increased mobility.Recently, I enjoyed an amazing 2 week Alaskan vacation –pain free. I was able to hike and explore without spinal subluxation. I no longer suffer needlessly from chronic pain and back freeze-ups.After completing my entire prescribed treatment plan, I moved into an incredible wellness program. I have recommended Chiropractic and Dr. Espinosa to all of my friends and family because of Dr. Espinosa’s technical expertise, and not to mention his ability to relate personally with people. His staff is tremendous too!Thank you Dr. E and Staff!!! – Dan D
I began care in January 2012. I was referred to Dr. Espinosa by a personal friend and chiropractor, Dr. Wong. I sought chiropractic care because it was my last hope. I was restricted more and more every day in my movement and I relied on taking drugs to kill the pain, which never really worked.I noticed a change within two weeks. I had less pain and more movement. I feel much better because I am now able to do all the things I have to do, pain free.I recommend chiropractic care to anyone like me – and don’t wait as long as I did! The longer you wait, the more difficult it is to get back to 100%. Now I can exercise regularly and go back for tune ups when needed. I believe you are doing an excellent job Dr. Espinosa! – Marvin W
I had experienced a severe back spasm that caused me pain and limited range of motion. I could barely walk or move around without pain, discomfort or tightening in my back. I couldn’t do anything and I immediately thought I needed to call Dr. Ray and possibly start chiropractic care. I noticed a change within five (5) visits! I was in less pain and I was able to move around better. Now I am more aware of my neck, back and how my back feels throughout the day. I recommend chiropractic care to anyone experiencing head, neck or back issues that cause pain or discomfort. I do believe through the chiropractic process that anyone can learn about their body and how to alleviate the frustration of aches and pains. I plan to assess my body for continued maintenance so as not to experience the severe pain that came by ignoring the small signs.– Jennifer T.
