What Is Upper Cervical Care?
Upper Cervical Care in a Nutshell
- The brain controls all messages to every cell in the body, including messages of health and healing.
- The upper cervical vertebrae—the atlas and the axis—directly affect the spinal cord and the control centres of the brain.
- If the atlas and axis are not aligned, the brain cannot communicate properly with the rest of the body. As a direct consequence, many types of health problems may begin to appear.
- Upper Cervical is a specialised approach to chiropractic that corrects misalignments of the atlas or axis, thus restoring the body’s normal function and health.
It’s as simple as that.
A Simple Concept
Upper Cervical care is based on the universal law of case and effect. For every effect or symptom, physical or mental, there must be a cause. Upper Cervical doctors focus on locating and removing interference to the nervous system that can be the cause of the health condition. Removing this interference allows the body to heal itself naturally without drugs or surgery.
An Upper Cervical correction is very controlled. There is no pulling, tugging or jerking of the head. This precise yet gentle touch allows the head, neck and spine to return to the proper position, thus removing the interference and restoring balance to the body.
