Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is extremely different from standard chiropractic. Upper Cervical Care specializes in the precise alignment of the Atlas (C1) vertebra. The corrections are very gentle and involve no twisting, popping or cracking.
Upper Cervical care is very affective because we are removing pressure from the brainstem and the nerves that control tension and balance of the musculature up and down the spinal column. The correction results in posture balance and beneficial neurological changes. These results are huge to patients suffering from postural ailments such as neck, mid and low back, hip and knee pain. The neurological benefits are endless due to the critical role the brainstem plays in the body’s functionality. Migraines, vertigo, high blood pressure, acid reflux, sleeplessness, anxiety, extremity neuropathies, asthma/allergy symptoms, are just some of the pathologies that I have personally seen great results with in my office.
Through cervical x-rays, taken in all 3 dimensions, an exact displacement of the atlas is determined. Because the atlas misaligns in the same position every time it misaligns, the adjustment corrects this displacement precisely and consistently every time it misaligns. X-rays are only repeated if an
accident, injury or trauma creates a different misalignment. Our passion is taking care of people and helping their bodies to heal through its own natural capabilities.
