Your health and healing rely on the complete & proper function of your nervous system.
The Nervous System controls every function and process of your body, including every cell, affecting your total health. If the nervous system is interfered with, then dysfunction will occur in the body causing symptoms and chronic conditions to manifest over time. The upper cervical region (upper neck) is a unique area of the spine and is the site where nerve interference can occur.
The upper cervical spine includes:
the most unstable part of your spine, most prone to injury
a close relation to the Brain Stem, which controls many vital body functions
densely packed area of nerve transmitters (mechanoreceptors), greater than any other area in the entire body
A misalignment in this region will cause nerve interference. The worst part is…
you cannot feel it occurring.
“All body systems would be immobilized without the nervous system. It controls and regulates every bodily activity down to the workings of the tiniest cell.”
- World Book Encyclopedia of Science
Your Upper Cervical Doctor will perform a physical exam to ensure no underlying conditions are overlooked. Next, an Infrared Thermographic scan at the back of your neck will determine if nerve interference is present. Then, your Doctor will take any necessary digital X-rays to locate the misalignment (subluxation).
A specific manual adjustment will be designed from the X-ray findings to re-align your upper cervical spine. Finally, your unique care plan will be presented to you including the Doctor’s recommendations of nervous system checks, manual adjustments and proper referrals if necessary. Most importantly, there are no medications or surgery involved with this care, thus allowing patients to heal naturally.
