About Upper Cervical Chiropractic
My chiropractic practice directly addresses abnormal tone (tension) in the body. By removing interference caused by misalignment of structures in the upper neck, normal tone (tension) is re-established.
Most people can easily see how upper cervical chiropractic can help headaches, dizziness and neck troubles. At the same time, I address all the many problems that all chiropractors attempt to treat including low back pain, sciatica, pain and numbness in the arms and legs, trouble walking, hip, knee and ankle problems.
In addition, upper cervical chiropractic has shown to be effective in areas that many people would not think of such as high blood pressure, digestive problems, asthma, and emotional depression.
We all want to be healthy. We usually want to get healthier, regain our health or at least maintain the health we have. So how do we improve our health? Most of us know that our diet is important. We need to stay active and get exercise. We need to get enough sleep. Many people meditate or pray to become calm and centered. Sometimes this is not enough. We may have problems that won’t go away no matter how hard we work to become balanced. This is often because our bodies themselves are unbalanced.
The basic idea in chiropractic is that our structure affects our function. Our bones help maintain our shape but it is the tension (tone) in our bodies that allows us to function. When the tone of the body is compromised, our bodies get twisted and pinched. The one constant that we all must deal with is gravity. When our tone is symmetrical (even) then we can easily stand up against gravity. Our hips are level and untwisted. Our shoulders are level. Our heads are on straight and we begin our movements from a place of ease.
Accidents and injuries can stretch and tear the soft tissues that maintain our structure. When this happens in the upper neck region it can cause a misalignment of the bony structures resulting in uneven tone (tension) in the whole body.
Commonly, one leg will appear shorter. This is because when muscles tighten, they shorten. When we stand, our pelvis becomes tilted and our upper body must twist and lean to keep us as centered as possible. We no longer stand against gravity in a posture of ease, but rather one of dis-ease.
We must constantly adapt and compensate for this uneven body tone. This makes our bodies work harder and struggle to carry out normal activities. Joints are made to function from a normal position and when they must work from a twisted place, they wear out sooner and become inflamed. Every organ system in the body is compromised by the uneven tone that distorts our body posture. Left uncorrected, this progressive degeneration leads to arthritis and disc problems in the bones and joints and innumerable problems in the other organ systems.
