What is Upper Cervical Care?

At the top of your spine are the cervical vertebrae or as we commonly associate with it, our neck bones. Without going into incredible detail about each of the 7 bones that make up this part of our spine, the top 2 bones of the neck are relatively unstable because of their significant mobility. The increased range of motion of the top 2 bones make them significantly more susceptible to injury and misalignment. Since the upper cervical spine is the most critical link between the brain and the rest of the body, a misalignment here will have an impact on every part of the body.

The brain has a network of nerves that extend down (through the upper cervical complex) to all of your body including organs such as your heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, arms and legs. Literally every muscle, tissue and cell in your body is connected to this network; all controlled by your nerves system.

The impact to our body from just a little pressure on our brain stem (caused by neck misalignment) can have devastating impacts to our health. Relieving the pressure from the upper cervical spine by upper cervical chiropractic adjustments has proven to have positive benefits on the entire body.

A prime example of how import this upper cervical spine link is to the rest of the body is the story of Christopher Reeves (Superman). He had damaged to just a very small portion of his upper cervical spine (1 millimeter or fraction of an inch) which not only paralyzed him but impacted his breathing, heart, and immune system. He ultimately died at 52 from a weak/damaged immune system.

Eighty-One Patients with Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease Undergoing Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care to Correct Vertebral Subluxation: A Retrospective Analysis.

A case study was demonstrated as showing improvement in a young woman with a seizure disorder after she received upper cervical chiropractic manipulation. The study was documented by the National Institutes of Health. She was "diagnosed with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME)...originally at the age of 14 years...Her seizure episodes began shortly after trauma to her cervical spine and the onset of menarche."

The study detailed "After case history and physical examination, the patient received high-velocity, low-amplitude chiropractic spinal manipulation to her upper cervical spine using the Blair upper cervical chiropractic technique protocol. There was improvement in her seizure episodes and menstrual cycles following 12 weeks of chiropractic care."
