The upper cervical section of the spine is the first two bones in the neck, referred to separately as the axis and atlas bones. If these bones, located just beneath the base of the skull, are misaligned, it can cause nervous system interference which makes it difficult for the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. The Upper Cervical Technique focuses on healing such misalignments.

This technique focuses closely on correcting such misalignments through the application of gentle, precise adjustments at targeted spots. This can allow the body to resume normal function by correcting distortions within the nervous system, and restore the patient to optimum responsiveness and health.

Why the Upper Cervical Region?

The upper cervical region is one of the most crucial areas of the body in terms of maintaining ideal functionality. Every signal directly to and from the brain stem travels through this region, with millions of signals passing through per minute. This region is where signals pass that regulate heartbeat, breathing, muscle coordination, blood flow (dilation and constriction of blood vessels), digestion and so much more.

 Unfortunately, the human body has not adapted strong natural protections against stress, pressure, friction and shock to this region, which has no cushioning discs and has fewer ligaments to support the structure. Because these bones also move differently than the rest of the spine—horizontal as opposed to vertical—they are also under more pressure regularly.

As such, when this region is exposed to even small amounts of shock and trauma it can create major systemic issues from the immune system to vital functions. Correcting these misalignments using the upper cervical technique can be essential to helping patients recover from sickness, injury and in maintaining health and wellness.
