Let Me Get This Straight...
You’ll Be Surprised What Can Be Fixed By Visiting An Upper-Cervical Chiropractor
How It Works
Upper Cervical Chiropractic works by targeting the root cause of the problem - the neck.
Everything in your body is controlled by your brain.
Including things like the immune system and hormones.
Your brain uses your spine to talk to your body.
The brain talks with the rest of your body through nerve fibers. This makes up the nervous system.
The weakest part of your spine is your neck.
The most important part of the spinal cord is also at the top where over ten billion nerves come together in an area the size of your thumb.
Sometimes your neck can become misaligned.
The top bone in your neck can slightly dislocate from the head, creating a misalignment.
As a result your body will change your posture to protect your neck.
In order to reduce some of the interference to nerves the body will change its posture to protect the nerves in the neck. Many symptoms are related to this change in posture. This is the Vertebral Subluxation.
This can cause all kinds of problems.
Symptoms of this problem can be almost anything. Most noteworthy low back pain, pain between the shoulders, neck pain, and headaches, but any breakdown in health may be a result of the Vertebral Subluxation.
That’s where I come in!
Upper cervical chiropractors (like me) treat the problem at the source - the neck.
Once the blockage at the top of the neck is removed there is no longer any reason for the body to compensate with bad posture and so it begins to grow back into its normal shape.
We use simple procedures and usually it only takes one visit.
Most people report that the first adjustment was so gentle they couldn't tell that something had actually happened until the symptoms started to go away.
"Least invasive chiropractor ever! He just lines everything up on your spine and pops you back into place. No bone cracking or trauma at all! At first I didn't think he did anything but then I had to adjust all the mirrors in my car because I was sitting up straight, haha! I've been back a few times over the years always a great experience."
Minimum Appointments. Maximum Results.
Due To The Precision And Accuracy Of The Analysis And Adjustment, Many Patients Require Significantly Fewer Adjustments Than With Most Other Chiropractic Techniques
