Precision Chiropractic: Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Safe? What happens after the Upper Cervical Adjustment?


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.

All patients who have undergone this procedure have reported significant improvement afterwards. Upper cervical adjustment is perfectly safe as long as it’s done by expert chiropractors like Precision Chiropractic, Austin, TX.

We are certified at the highest level possible and have everything it takes to deliver upper cervical adjustment to relieve you of pain and other associated issues.

What our patients say about Us

Mary

You are a “god send” to me. For the first time in two weeks I am walking around, standing tall, breathing full breaths without pain, no pain in my back, hip, leg or stomach. I really planned to have a very serious talk with my regular doctor next week because I was so fearful that something bad was going on with that much pain. Who would have thought it was all cause by an out of wack back. Even though I came in to get my neck fixed which you did and I can turn my head again. But I appreciate you offering to check out my back while I was there since that was so much more of a concern as my neck. I had no idea you could make so much difference with so few moves. Thank you thank you thank you. I will set up another session by next month. I now know you can help both and your help is very valuable to me. To get rid of pain is incredible for me. Please know you are definitely in the right profession. I will spread the word to everyone I know. I want to see you succeed.

Mary
