Macomb Township Chiropractic Chiropractors Chris McNeil and Frank Norton Use State of the Art Technology to Detect Pinched Nerves
With new technology expanding the forefronts of today’s society, it seems as if there is a solution for everything nowadays thanks to the vast evolution of science. However, when it comes to health, there is no limit as to what can be achieved to further expand the understanding of health care. Thanks to the inner workings of NASA certified technology, the world of Chiropractic care now has a better way to detect nerve interference and get to the root cause of any health problem.
Macomb Township Chiropractic Chiropractors Chris McNeiland Franklin Nortonuse the latest in state of the art technology, including an infrared thermal Scan, and an S.E.M.G muscle test. S.E.M.G standing for Surface Electromyography which is a device that measures the amount of electrical activity within the muscles, when they are contracting, caused by muscle tension.
Muscle tension and nerve interference, is caused when bones are shifted out of proper alignment, putting pressure on the nerves causing them to be irritated and inflamed, leading to aches, pains, and even dysfunction.
The testing gives an accurate assessment of the entire spine starting at the base of the skull and finishing at the tail bone. The test measures in three colors; Green for mild, blue for moderate, and red for severe levels of nerve interference.
Patients from all over Macomb County are getting a better idea of health and healing with this new system in place. Not only have the patients been more on board with care, but the doctors at Macomb Township Chiropractic are getting better results because of it!
Dr. Chris McNeil Macomb Twp. Chiropractic Clinic director explains, “With the surface EMG muscle test, and the infrared thermographic scanner, I can now get a precise examination of any acute stress on my patients spinal nerves, and deliver specific scientific chiropractic adjustments to that exact area of the body, relieving any built up muscle tension.”
Nerve interference can wreak havoc on a body and develop into underlying weaknesses that could go undetected for years. Orthopedic textbooks state that in an early stage of nerve interference there may not be any symptoms at all. In fact, it can be present for up to an entire 10 years without any indication of it.
To give a better understanding of nerve interference in the spine, here’s a breakdown of what can happen in each area. Starting in the lower back, multiple levels of nerve interference can shoot through the hips and down into the legs causing not only aches and pains, but numbness, and tingling that travels all the way down into the feet if left there long enough. These nerves also control digestion, the urinary track, and reproductive system as well, so some very crucial organ systems involved.
In the mid back, aches and pains can also be felt, but dysfunction can also be present in the Respiratory system, the cardiovascular system, and the upper digestive track.
In the neck, nerve interference controls the musculature between the shoulder blades, and down the arms. Aches, pains, stiffness, and decrease range of motion are the many symptoms associated with that kind of blockage. Headaches, migraines, TMJ, dizziness, vertigo, sinus issues, ringing in the ears, thyroid conditions, immunity problems -just to name a few, are also an array of issues that plague people on a regular basis if interference is left there long enough.
Dr. Franklin Norton is no stranger when it comes to dealing with high levels of nerve interference. He says “Over 78 trillion nerves exit from the bottom of the brain and travel to every muscle, cell, tissue, and organ of the body. With basic science we know that every nerve exits through the brain stem and travels down into the spinal cord delivering specific messages, to specific functions. With that being said, when there is interference blocking those messages from getting through, symptoms can arise globally throughout the whole entire body.”
This technology is at the leading edge of health care assessments and reporting. It is performed to determine areas of abnormal muscle imbalance. These imbalances may be caused by spinal subluxations and may interfere with the communication between the brain and other parts of the body.
It is safe, effective, reliable, and accurate in terms of being used. Chiropractors can now continue to recommend care plans with an even greater accuracy and confidence when using the INSiGHT scanning systems.

What is a Bulging Disc?
Bulging disc, also knowns as a Disc Herniation, are the most common reason related to pain in the spinal area.
Bulging discs occur when pressure on a spinal disc damages or breaks down the once healthy disc, causing it to compress or change its normal shape.
Here at Macomb Township Chiropractic and Metro Detroit Chiropractors in Ferndale, we deliver an effective treatment that helps by opening the disc space to alleviate the pressure and tension from the area. By relieving the disc pressure, this allows the irritated nerve to be reduced, which helps to subside the related pain. It also diminishes the reflex of a muscle spasm.
One specific treatment we use is called Spinal disc decompression. It creates a negative pressure within the disc, and it essentially retracts the disc herniation. To begin, we place a special harness on the upper abdomen and lower pelvis to act as a stabilizing intermittent traction. It gently separates the spine causing a pulling and release effect. When it is appropriately applied, it creates separation within the intervertebral space creating a vacuum like suction. The vacuum effect pulls the disc herniation back into the intervertebral disc space, and in return reduces the problem.
Our doctors, Dr. Chris McNeil (Macomb Twp Chiropractic and Metro Detroit Chiropractors Clinic Director), Dr. Franklin Norton and Dr. Peter Andersen are no strangers when it comes to dealing with Disc Herniation. In fact, it’s one of our more common conditions we see and treat. The longer an issue gets left untreated, the longer it takes for the treatment to be effective. It’s best to come in as soon as possible, and not delay the healing process.
It’s always a good thing to come in and get checked out to see if you have a herniated disc, to prevent future problems. Visit our website www.MetroDetoritChiropractors.com to find the nearest location and call to schedule your appointment now.

Macomb Twp. Chiropractic Chiropractors Reveal Causes and Treatments for 3 Common Headache Types
A large number of people suffer with headaches every day, but all headaches are not same. No matter what the type of headache they most always affect the headache sufferer’s life in a negative way. Knowing the kind of headache one has can ensure proper diagnosis and treatment because the differences between headaches can be very distinct, but sometimes this difference is very subtle.
“There are many types and causes of headaches and main way to differentiate between headaches is to know the different symptoms associated with each kind of headache”, says Dr. Chris McNeil Macomb Twp. Chiropractic Clinic Director.
A tension headache is characterized by tightness on both sides of head and sometimes accompanied by the tightness in neck. It can last from 30 minutes to several days. Tension headaches can affect people of all ages
Two main causes of tension headaches can be from a major trauma, like a sports injury or car accident, or from a minor trauma like a repetitive job or poor posture. Major or minor trauma can put significant tension on the nerves, muscles and joints of the neck and create the symptoms of a tension headache.
Symptoms of a tension headache include tightness around the head and neck with a headache that radiates like a hat band. Common treatments of tension headaches may be medication, heat therapy and chiropractic treatments.
A very large number of people get affected by migraine headaches every year, and 75% of these people are women. Migraine headaches are characterized by severe pain in head and 60% of the sufferers feel pain in one side of the head. Migraines are most prevalent between the age group of 45-64 years and tend to run in families.
“Migraine headaches can also be caused by nerve, muscle and joint tension, but other factors like hormones, diet and genetics can play a part” said Dr. Chris McNeil Chiropractor Macomb MI.
Symptoms of a migraine headache may include nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound. Treatments for a migraine headache may include strong prescription medication that often has side effects, sleeping, chiropractic treatments or dietary changes.
Cluster headaches are usually located in the eye region. The reason why these kinds of headaches are called Cluster headaches is that they occur three to four times a day in a short duration of time. This is an excruciating type of headache typically experienced by men between the ages of twenty to fifty years.
Cluster headaches can be caused by chemical stress from medication, msg or, artificial sweetener. “Cluster Headaches can also be caused by mechanical spinal cord tension, depression or anxiety,” says Dr. Frank Norton. Symptoms of a cluster headache can include sharp stabbing pain around the eye, nasal congestion and eye redness and irritation. Remedies for cluster headaches may include dietary changes, breathing exercises, medication and chiropractic care.
No matter what type of headache one may suffer from they almost always have a negative effect on one’s life. From problems sleeping, working or spending time with family, finding out what type of headache and the proper treatment can most often make dramatic positive changes in a person’s life!

Macomb Twp. Chiropractic Clinic and Back Pain & Sciatica Relief Disc Decompression Therapy Treatment Office
If you suffer from back pain and you live in or near Macomb Township Michigan, Macomb Twp. Chiropractic is a Chiropractic Clinic and Disc Decompression Therapy Center that can help you get out of pain and heal quicker.
Macomb Township Chiropractic prides itself on being one of the most advanced chiropractic rehab centers in Macomb County and in Michigan. Macomb Township Chiropractic Chiropractor Chris McNeil was the first chiropractor in Michigan to certify in Chiropractic Bio-Physics, which is the most researched and published of any of the hundreds of chiropractic techniques in the chiropractic profession. This advanced technique is somewhat of a mix of physical therapy and chiropractic care. Nick named Chiropractic rehab; CBP (or Clinical Bio-mechanics of Posture) uses specific spinal and postural x-ray analysis, postural analysis, postural adjustments and postural traction to remodel the spine and posture closer to a normal and healthy position. Macomb Township Chiropractor Dr. Franklin Norton gravitated towards this rehabilitative technique because it was a way he could help prevent his younger brother from having scoliosis surgery, as did his sister.
When the spine and posture become misaligned from the normal healthy position, weather from a major trauma (such as a car accident) or a minor repetitive trauma (such as working on an assembly line) the pressure and stress builds up on the muscles, joints, discs and nerves and can leaded to pain and other spinal injuries. This nerve, joint or disc pressure can be minimized or eliminated through the rehabilitative techniques at Macomb Twp. Chiropractic, thus relieving and correcting the cause of the pain.
In addition to performing CBP spinal rehab in the clinic, Macomb Twp Chiropractic offers non-surgical disc decompression therapy. In fact, it’s one of the first clinics in Michigan who perform disc therapy and CBP together. These are two of the most innovated and advanced chiropractic methods to help people with not only back pain nut many other spinal related problems too.
Disc therapy is non-invasive procedures by which a special treatment table that’s connected to a computer allows the doctors to gently separate the bones in the spine and allows a suction within the bulging, herniated or degenerated discs. This suction allows the damaged disc material to be pulled back into the disc and off of the spinal cord and spinal nerves. Disc Decompression therapy is a very effective treatment for those people who suffer with back pain, sciatic, neck pain, arm pain and numbness related to bulging, herniated or degenerated discs.
The combination of these two advanced and innovative rehabilitative treatments greatly speeds up the doctors ability at Macomb Twp. Chiropractic to not only get a person out of pain, but to help avoid injections, surgery and the back pain from returning.

Macomb Township Chiropractic Offers Massage Therapy for Neck & Back Pain Relief
Massage Therapy at Macomb Township Chiropractic can not only help to relieve stress on the body and the mind, but it can also help improve chiropractic care and treatment outcomes.
When a person has neck or back pain, there are usually muscle spasms as well. This is typically because of disc or joint pressure causing irritation to the nerves that go to those tight muscles.
Massage therapy can help to reduce muscle tension and spams which can impede a person’s ability to achieve optimum disc healing as well as spine and posture correction,” said Macomb Township Chiropractor Chris McNeil.
The chiropractor’s job is to reduce the pressure on the nerves going to the muscle that is in spasm, by using chiropractic treatments and other therapies to restore the spine and posture to a more normal and healthy position, and reduce the pressure from the joints and discs.
At times the chiropractor may utilize other therapies to assist in restoring the normal spinal and postural position. Massage is one of the therapies that the chiropractor often uses in conjunction with chiropractic treatments.
Massage therapy can help to relieve muscle spasms, or trigger points, caused by nerve pressure so the body is looser and more flexible. This will ultimately allow the chiropractic treatments to be more effective and long lasting.
Macomb Township Chiropractic Chiropractors Chris McNeil and Franklin Norton specialize in two advanced and specialized techniques that greatly increase chances of neck pain, back pain and disc pain suffers to fully cover, and now they have added massage therapy to their arsenal of therapeutic procedures.
One of the specialized chiropractic rehab techniques the Macomb Township Chiropractors perform is call Clinical Biomechanics of Posture. This method of care mixes traditional chiropractic techniques with physical therapy and specific postural rehab to re-train the spine and posture closure to a normal and healthier position.
Another therapy performed in the clinic to assist in the healing of bulging, herniated or degenerated discs and is called non-surgical disc decompression therapy. This gentle procedure uses specialized equipment to separate the bones of the spine to create a negative pressure or suction within the damaged disc. This suction can reverse the damaging effects of disc bulges or herniation by pulling the disc material back into its proper potion and off the spinal cord and nerves.
It also helps to revive degenerated discs and increases the disc space to release nerve pressure.
Along with massage therapy the doctors may use heat, stretching, ultrasound or vibration therapy to reduce muscle spasms for a more effective treatment.
If you are a resident of Macomb Township or Macomb County, and you are suffering with back pain, sciatica, neck pain, headaches, auto accident injuries, disc bulge or disc herniation, Macomb Township Chiropractic may be able to help you get you out of pain and back to your life.

Ferndale and Macomb Township Chiropractors Chris McNeil, Frank Norton and Peter Anderson Diagnose and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Auto Accident Patients
Ferndale and Macomb Township Chiropractors Chris McNeil, Frank Norton and Peter Anderson Diagnose and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Auto Accident Patients
When people are involved in an auto accident there are a lot of different injuries that can happen. The most common injuries that are treated at Metro Detroit Chiropractors auto injury clinics in Macomb Twp and Ferndale MI are: neck pain, back pain, disc injuries, sciatica, headaches and numbness. However, there is a common injury that is often undetected and undiagnosed for many injured in an accident, and it can have devastating effects on a person’s life. This injury is called traumatic brain injury or TBI.
During an auto accident there can be a rapid acceleration and deceleration. A rapid acceleration can occur when you are sitting at a red light or stop sign and you suddenly get rear ended. This causes your body to rapidly accelerate in milliseconds. A rapid deceleration happens when you are driving and suddenly the traffic in front of you stops and you come to a crashing halt. During a rapid acceleration or deceleration the forces on a body are extreme. “Not only can these forces cause ligament sprains, muscle strains, disc bulges and herniations, but they can also cause damage to one’s delicate brain tissues,” said Dr. Frank Norton at Macomb Twp Chiropractic.
As the body and head whip around during the impact the brain bounces around inside of the skull. The delicate brain tissue is easily damaged which can cause a multitude of symptoms. Some of the common symptoms associated with a traumatic brain injury are: memory loss, headaches, dizziness, balance problems, vision disturbances, speech problems, ringing in the ears, sleep disturbances, problems focusing or concentrating, anger, anxiety and depression.
“After an initial diagnosis of TBI our doctors can refer the patient to a specialist for further diagnostic testing and treatment” says Chris McNeil, Chiropractor and Macomb Twp and Ferndale Chiropractic clinic director. A neurologist can perform an EEG or order an MRI to determine if a brain injury occurred. The neurologist may also prescribe medications to help relieve some of the symptoms the patient may be experiencing. A neuro-psychologist can perform a cognitive assessment to find deficits in brain and cognitive function. Physical or Occupational therapy can be prescribed to perform cognitive, speech and balance therapy. Neuro Quant MRI performs volumetric analysis and can be ordered to determine if any brain atrophy has occurred over time as a result of the TBI. Lastly, chiropractic treatments can help reduce headaches and other symptoms.
“Patients suffering from a TBI can have different levels of severity, from simple forgetfulness to stabbing headaches and disorientation” said Dr. Peter Anderson of Metro Detroit Chiropractors in Ferndale MI. From lost sleep to inability to work and care for themselves or their family members, the many symptoms associated with TBI take a hearty toll on ones life. Often time’s people with traumatic brain injury are need of a medical case manager to assist the patient in scheduling transportation and doctor’s appointments. The case manager can also gather records from different doctors and provide them to the insurance adjuster or to the patients attorney. In severe cases of TBI the patient may even need to live and an assisted living facility staffed with nurses and occupational therapist to assist with rehabilitation and the activities of daily living.
Traumatic brain injury is very common and should be taken very seriously. Unfortunately, going to the wrong doctors can cause a missed diagnosis which could lead to a permanent brain injury.
Contact the nearest www.MetroDetroitChiropractors.com clinic to schedule an appointment if you believe you or a family member has a TBI that is not getting the proper testing and care.
