We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our clinical judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
Chiropractic techniques fit into 3 basic models based on the three body systems primarily addressed by chiropractors. Chiropractic intimately involves itself with the skeletal system, the muscle system and the nervous system. Therefore, while all chiropractic techniques involve all three systems, the techniques themselves can be differentiated from one another based on their method of assessment and their method of correction.
This full spine approach relies on X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for a thorough evaluation and documented results.
After identifying which vertebrae have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is applied to free up “stuck” spinal joints.
What makes Upper Cervical Chiropractic so unique is the ability to identify the most influential area of the spine so that when corrected will allow the rest of the spine to adapt back to its normal and healthy position.
Almost always that main misalignment will be at the very top of the spine where it connects to your head. By carefully analyzing and precisely correcting this area we are able to restore function back to the rest of the body.
Upper Cervical is a unique form of chiropractic care. It is an extremely gentle and precise adjustment of the spine that involves no popping, cracking, or twisting of the joints.
The chiropractor uses spinal measurements and exact spinal x-ray measurements to design an adjustment that is unique to you, the patient. No two Upper Cervical spinal adjustments are the same, as everyone’s spinal shape, size, and misalignment is completely individual. Because so much time and precision goes in to designing each patient’s adjustment, the adjustment itself is very gentle. Patients most often notice the greatest amount of change following the first adjustment. Along with a notable reduction of pain and other symptoms, patients often report a profound sense of relaxation and calmness following the first adjustment that lasts for several days.Contact us to schedule an appointment
