Benefits of Upper Cervical Chiropractic
by Rebecca Ellis
Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on the top of the spine at the brain stem level to influence the nervous system by removing stress and tension on the spine. Throughout our lives, accidents and injuries can cause damage to the ligaments and muscles that hold the spine together, allowing misalignments to occur which affect the way the body functions and feels because they affect the nervous system. Aches and pains are messages communicating that something is wrong and encourage individuals to do something differently.
Through upper cervical care, the body is balanced using objective measures to ensure proper body movement and function. In the Blair Upper Cervical Technique, objective measures such as body balance, paraspinal infrared thermography and precision X-rays are used to detect, assess and correct misalignments in the spine. Corrections are gentle, specific and do not require any bending, twisting or popping. Upper cervical chiropractic can help to relieve many different types of symptoms or dysfunctions in the body, including spine pain, headaches/migraines and fatigue, as well as providing the ultimate in total wellness care.
