Most patients who require upper cervical adjustment often ask one particular question during consultation session – Is this treatment procedure safe?
In this post, we have answered this question in great detail, so go ahead to read up on Upper Cervical Adjustment and what’s involved when implementing it as a treatment procedure for patients who have cervical subluxations.
At Precision Chiropractic, we offer professional upper cervical chiropractic care that’s aimed at delivering painless healing to your body, from your neck throughout your spinal column. This treatment procedure is mostly painless and the worst you can experience is mild muscle soreness that clears up in a matter of days.
Upper cervical adjustment focuses on correcting any misalignments of the bones in the upper vertebrae area. In fact, misalignment of the bones in this area can cause a lot of problems for a person. These misalignments are known as subluxations.
Our chiropractors focus on tending to the C1 and the C2, also known as the Atlas and the Axis. When properly done, this cervical adjustment affects the whole body as the central nervous system which passes through the vertebrae has smoother transmission of signals to and from the brain.
Poor nervous system signaling can cause health challenges that appear to have no known causes. In this case, if a chiropractor doesn’t come in, treatment becomes difficult. At Precision Chiropractic, we first perform a consultation session to discuss your challenges to know what’s best for you in term of treatment before we begin.
