Upper Cervical Chiropractic is the revolutionary force in health care that is sweeping across the country and all over the world.  Focusing on the most important part of the body, the brainstem, upper cervical care is the most scientifically and technologically sound brand of chiropractic and the media and medical doctors are taking notice.  Featured recently on “Good Morning America,” “The Montell Williams Show,” and “The Doctors,” Upper Cervical chiropractors are reminding people that health comes from the inside and that if we unlock the body’s own natural healing capabilities, amazing things can happen.  We should give the body a chance, first, and use medications as a last resort instead of the first option. 

The body is extremely intelligent and organized.  It was designed for you to be happy and healthy, not sad and sick.  It was not designed to develop cancer or diabetes or heart problems or pain.  The foundation of that intelligent design is the brainstem.  The very first thing developed once the sperm meets the egg, the brainstem is responsible for directing life.  The brain forms above it, the spinal cord below it, each and every nerve originates from it, your vital organs form at the end of those nerves, and the skull and spinal column form around it for protection.  The brainstem’s job is to direct traffic; to route the flow of information between the brain and the vital organs and each of the trillions of cells in the body.  If one hundred musicians all were on stage playing their favorite tune…and each had a different favorite tune…it would sound awful.  Add a director and you have a symphony.  If a bunch of athletes went out on the field/court and played without instruction, they would be terrible.  Add a head coach and you have a team.  If trillions of signals traveling through the nerve system had nothing to direct them, it would be chaos.  Add the brainstem to route those signals and you get LIFE. 

At the Upper Cervical Chiropractic-Wellness Connection, the objective is identify a condition called a brainstem subluxation, which is a misalignment to one of the top two bones in the neck that may be interfering with your brainstem’s ability to do its job of controlling the function of the body.  And without proper function in the body, you CANNOT be healthy.  If the brainstem subluxation is found, then it is corrected with a very safe, gentle adjustment that can be performed on newborns or 110-year olds alike.  There is no twisting, turning, or cracking involved.  It’s highly specified.  Once the correction has been made, the goal is for the patient to hold the adjustment (not to adjust you every visit).  Getting adjusted every visit would be like getting a cavity filled every time you went to the dentist!  When you need to be adjusted, that means the misalignment has returned and the brainstem is once again potentially unable to do its job properly.  Health and healing come from holding the adjustment.  Patients have held their corrections for as long as a year, coming in just to get evaluated or checked.  Once they get their lives back, going back to how they were before seems irrational…
