The nerve system is like the information super highway of your life. Messages travel at lightening-like speeds to deliver the messages to EVERY cell, tissue, and organ in your body. It allows your cuts to heal, your body to sweat to cool itself, shiver when cold to warm yourself up, and vomit when poisoned. Breathing, digesting, and growing... ALL are controlled by this system.
Chiropractors make sure your nerve system is working correctly so your body can have the greatest flow of life! With that, the body can perform at its best, leading to optimum health. Your possibilities are endless when there is no interference with life flow.
An upper cervical chiropractor gives a very gentle, yet specific adjustment that affects the whole body.
The upper cervical bones protect your spinal cord as it runs through the middle, connecting your brain and body.
The brainstem turns into the spinal cord as it leaves your head (skull).
Upper cervical chiropractors are dedicated to making chiropractic as specific, scientific, and efficient as we can. We believe, and science supports, that correcting upper cervical misalignments improves function throughout the entire body.
Upper cervical misalignment can put stress on the spinal cord, affecting above (brainstem) and below (the rest of the spine).
Even more impressive? All the things you DO think are controlled by nerves that run through this same area. Misalignment of the upper cervical spine can interfere with the messages these nerves send.
