Traditional Chiropractic Vs. Gentle, Specific Chiropractic
Updated: Oct 3
Upper cervical chiropractic is a chiropractic technique that assesses the spine, as a whole and not as individual parts. This technique is very specific in measuring the misalignment of the C1 bone aka. the Atlas. Once measurements are acquired, there is no guess work involved in the process. A very gentle force is required to move the C1. No cracks, pops or twists!
We focus on the C1 bone because the brainstem (opening of the brain into the spinal cord) and center of gravity enters the C1 bone. We have seen profound changes to the central and autonomic nervous system when stress is reduced off the the brainstem.
The symptoms we have observed an improvement on are facial numbness, glossopharyngeal neuropathy, vertigo, blurry vision, fatigue, ringing in the ear, torticollis, numbness and tingling in the head, headaches, migraines, stroke migraines, sciatica, trigeminal neuralgia, lack of focus and insomnia and balance.
Realigning the spine has demonstrated structural changes by resolving or improving scoliosis, and reversal of the neck as seen in the picture above.
Patients have also experienced reduction in visits due to the specificity of the technique. Our patients love that once their conditions have been resolved, they no longer require pain management tools. Rather they require bimonthly maintenance!
