Can Upper Cervical Care Help Me?Upper cervical care can help everyone - infants, seniors, mothers-to-be, athletes and accident victims will benefit from a healthy spine and nervous system! If you have a health problem, upper cervical doctors will strive to correct its cause, not just treat the symptoms. If you are symptom free, upper cervical care is one of the best ways to stay healthy. Am I a Good Candidate for Upper Cervical?
WHAT IS UPPER CERVICAL?
The neck is a vital and complex region of your body. In order for health to be optimized, your brain needs to communicate effectively with your entire body. Major injury to the upper neck usually results in death or paralysis, but less severe injuries can result in serious negative long-term effects as well. Like a pebble in your shoe that creates more irritation the longer it is present, misalignments in your neck irritate your nerves and blood vessels over time and can create significant problems with your body’s ability to self-heal.
A misalignment combined with nerve irritation is referred to as an upper cervical subluxation. Upper cervical chiropractors reduce the brain stem irritation and improve brain to body communication by returning proper structural balance to the upper neck. In short, we get your head on straight!
Most Conditions Originate with our Nerves
We have a 12 pound head resting on a two-ounce bone, held together with soft tissue. It doesn’t take a tremendous amount of force to cause that two-ounce bone to get out of its normal position. Once out, it causes nerve interference and a decrease in brain to body communication function. Most of the time, patients don’t just have one thing wrong, they have multiple symptoms of this impingement happening in their body, since the entire brainstem is in that part of your neck. If your body isn’t functioning properly this is a possibility you need to have evaluated. .
When Should I Start?
It is preferable to attempt to fix an injury to the upper neck as quickly as possible before symptoms can develop. However, because upper cervical chiropractic is one of the best-kept secrets in health care, most people don’t find an upper cervical chiropractor until after symptoms have developed. I personally invite you to come into our office and have a consultation with me. Let me share with you from my years of experience just how safe and effective this form of treatment can be for you. I'm here to walk this journey of your health with you one step at a time.
