A Unique Approach to Healing…

The upper cervical corrective procedure is designed to restore the body’s natural ability to regain and maintain optimal health. It is our chiropractic specialty.

Brain health and healing messages leave the brain by way of the brain stem, pass through the neck, down the spinal cord and out over the entire nervous system, to all parts of the body. These brain messages control, maintain and monitor all body functions.

Auto accidents, falls, whiplash, bump on the head, sports injuries, or even a difficult birthing process can cause muscles  and ligaments on one side of the neck to contract and hold the head and neck in a misaligned position.

When the heads (10-14 lbs) is shifted off the center of the top of the neck, the rest of the body will compensate for the shift of weight. The spine and pelvis will twist, causing one shoulder to drop down, one hip is pulled up, bringing the leg with it to create body imbalance.

The stress and tension can cause migraines, neck, shoulder, back, hip, knee and other body pain. This head/neck misalignment can disrupt or distort the efficient flow of brain messages to the body. This dysfunction can lead to the development of numerous health problems. Upper cervical chiropractic procedures are designed to correct head/neck misalignment.

Upper cervical doctors will make precision x-rays of the head and neck. These x-rays will show the degree of head/neck misalignment and enable the doctor to develop a correction formula that is individual to each patient.

The doctor will use this corrective formula to restore head/neck alignment and reactivate the body’s natural ability to regain and maintain optimal health. This corrective procedure is barely felt by the patient and requires no forceful twisting, pulling or jerking motion.

As soon as the correction is made, muscles begin to relax, oxygen and blood circulation is increased, and immune system is enhanced and immediately the body begins its natural self-healing process.

On follow-up visits, the doctor will help the patient maintain their correction to prevent any interruption in the body’s natural self-healing process.

The results can be dramatic and some patients report immediate relief of symptoms.
