What is Specific Chiropractic?
Specific Chiropractic, otherwise known as Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic, looks for a three-dimensional transfer of the head and neck away from center of the spine. The head and neck placement are responsible for the position, and much of the structural integrity of the spine as a whole. When the Atlas (C1) or Axis vertebra (C2) shift out of place, the head moves away from the center of the neck and misaligns.
Specific Chiropractic Help?
An upper cervical misalignment, otherwise known as a subluxation, eventually creates spinal and other body imbalances, causing the shoulders to shift and the hips to twist – leading to total spinal distortion. When the Atlas or Axis vertebra shifts out of place, it also can constrict or impinge upon the nerves of the brainstem, spinal cord, and/or other nerve structures. This can can lead to a variety of symptoms. When clinically necessary, a specific adjustment is made to the upper cervical spine to restore function of the nervous system and relieve symptoms.
