When most people think of Chiropractic they think of relief for neck pain, back pain, headaches or some type of relief for the spine. What we try to focus on at New Life Chiropractic in Rocklin is the health of the brain and the nervous system.
Your spine actually has three areas.
- Your brain stem.
- The spinal cord.
- The nerve roots.
And every one of these areas of your nervous system should have no interference and no pressure.
The most common area of pressure and the worst area you can have interfered with is actually the brain stem. The brain stem is right at the top of the neck, at the base of the skull.
Now when you have a problem with the brain stem itself, this affects your autonomic nervous system and the number one symptom in America right now is fatigue.
Watch this video to learn the connection between spinal misalignment and fatigue.

Why Are People So Tired?
People are tired.
People are overworked.
People don’t have the mental clarity they want to.
People are constantly exhausted and most people turn to some type of medication, some type of stimulant, or they just deal with the problem. Very few people are actually getting to the cause and being able to remove the interference so the body can heal itself.
So I want to show you exactly what causes that fatigue in your body. It’s pressure on the brain stem.
Misalignment of the C-1
The very top bone of your spine, the C-1, sits right below the brain stem. If you have a subluxation – a misalignment – or lack of function of that one bone of your spine at the top of the neck, that’s going to affect the blood supply to the head. It directly affects the function of the brain and the pituitary gland which controls the majority of the chemicals in your body.
It affects your inner middle ear, your sinuses, and your entire sympathetic nervous system, which is what regulates normal function in your body.
- You can see here [referencing the chart shown in the video] the list of things that are affected by just a little bit of interference in that top bone in the spine. Headaches
- Sinus problems
- High blood pressure
- Chronic fatigue and tiredness.
So many people I see coming in are overworked, overtired, and over stressed. We check them, and the cause of their problem is an interference of pressure (subluxation) of the C-1, the top part of the spine affecting the brain stem.
This is causing their body to work two, three, four, sometimes five times harder than it has to. It is robbing the brain of the energy that it needs and not allowing the brain to detox, repair, or regenerate. This is directly interfering with normal health and function in their body.
Are You Tired All The Time?
Are you tired all the time? Not sleeping very well? You don’t have enough energy to be able to attack all areas of your life the way you want to?
Ask yourself, “Have I had my spine checked by a corrective care chiropractor? How’s my C-1 doing? How’s the brain stem, the spinal cord and the nerves doing?”
That’s the first place you want to look.
If you want to learn more about correcting issues with your C-1 and brain stem, make sure you make an appointment.
