Curious Chiropractic: Upper Cervical Care

Posted by Dr. Dawn Bortoluzzi B.Sc, D.C. on Monday, September 14, 2015

In the realm of alternative medicine, there is not method more renowned than that of chiropractic. Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that seek to treat the human body through treatments to the spine, which, besides providing musculoskeletal relief, also affects the nervous system in a positive way.

Upper Cervical Care

Upper cervical care is a method used within chiropractic that puts emphasis on the atlas and axis bones of the cervical spine, which is very close to the brain. This method of care is unique in the way that it provides relief in a manner that also has a profound effect on the nervous system and general spinal care as well as the rest of the body. The general idea of upper cervical care states that these two vertebrae (atlas and axis) are susceptible to displacement, which in turn can interfere with the brain’s, and especially the brain stem’s, vital functions to the point where your whole body is affected. Upper cervical care seeks to both prevent and remedy the displacement of the vertebrae for a general impact on the body’s health and well-being. Upper Cervical Care is believed to be able to prevent and/or treat:

  • Migraines
  • Lower Back Pain
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Ear Infections
  • Diabetes
  • Depression

Chiropractic is a tried and true method of treating and taking care of the human body. It combines the in depth knowledge of the human body with an innovative and alternative approach to treatment. It is this that sets it apart from all other forms of alternative medicine.
