A Chiropractor works with the spinal bones (vertebrae) and the neuro-musculoskeletal system of the human body, adjusting the positioning and alignment of the spine and other joints to re-balance and restore normal nerve signaling, which promotes healing and overall well being.
Some of the most common duties and responsibilities that chiropractors perform regularly include:
The only difference in addition to general Chiropractic, being the application and location of the alignment applied to the spine. Upper Cervical Chiropractors focus on the Atlas (C1) and the Axis (C2). The first two bones of the spine, under the skull.
The goal of Upper Cervical Care (UCC) is to improve brain-to-body connection, ensuring that the nervous system is operating at its best, specifically the autonomic nerve system in particular. Removing Vertebral Subluxations through spinal corrections affects the function of the entire body, allowing the body to heal more efficiently and function at it's optimum. Read more about Vertebral Subluxations in our TREATMENT tab above.
We practice Upper Cervical Chiropractic and activator techniques to align and correct the spine to regulate the nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Watch a video of the process of a Upper Cervical adjustment here:
