Upper Cervical Care In A Nutshell

FREE Consultation

The brain controls all messages to every cell in the body, including messages of health and healing. The upper cervical vertebrae—the atlas and the axis—directly affect the spinal cord and the control centres of the brain. If the atlas and axis are not aligned, the brain cannot communicate properly with the rest of the body. As a direct consequence, health problems may begin to appear. Upper Cervical is a specialised approach to chiropractic that corrects misalignments of the atlas or axis, thus restoring the body’s normal function and health. It’s as simple as that.

A Simple Concept

Upper Cervical care focuses on the proper alignment of the top vertebrae in the neck. The reason that head alignment is so important is that this part of your body protects your brainstem. Upper Cervical doctors believe that inference or disruption to the normal activity of your brainstem may potentially contribute to a number of health conditions.

An Upper Cervical correction is different from what many people think of as chiropractic manipulation. There is no pulling, tugging, or jerking of the head. This precise yet gentle touch allows the head, neck, and spine to return to the proper position, helping to remove the interference and restoring balance to the body.
