Upper Cervical Chiropractic Methods
Are you experiencing stiffness or a nagging discomfort in your neck or upper back area? You’re not alone. Many people worldwide struggle with various health issues often caused by postural misalignments. The good news is that upper cervical chiropractic treatment can effectively address the cause of pain and discomfort, helping you achieve an overall boost in quality of life.
At Johnson Spinal Care, we offer a specialized form of upper cervical care called NUCCA chiropractic. NUCCA is a great painless spinal correction procedure that adjusts and corrects imbalances at the top of the spine, allowing your body to restore normal, healthy function. This intervention can help alleviate various conditions, including neck pain, headaches, migraines and back pain.
How Does Upper Cervical Chiropractic Work?
Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments focus on adjusting the upper neck region of the spine. Typically, a number of ailments in the body and range of motion restrictions are linked to a set of bones in your upper cervical spine. These bones, commonly known as the Atlas and Axis, are increasingly vulnerable to injury or misalignment as they are highly mobile to let you move your head in different directions.
During your consultation for NUCCA chiropractic, your chiropractor will discuss your concerns and conduct a physical exam to gain a sense of your mobility and range of motion. Further, an assessment of the misalignment of the atlas vertebra is done using state-of-the-art diagnostic technology. After locating the source of interference, the next step is to create a personalized treatment plan that corrects the misalignment, so your body can start the journey to healing itself.
If you’re looking for a safe, non-invasive, natural alternative to muscle relaxants or pain medication, you may want to try upper cervical chiropractic care.
Why Do You Need Upper Cervical Care?
Modern living is characterized by sedentary and technology-dependent lifestyles that make us more prone to structural and postural imbalances. It may not be obvious, but routine habits like sitting for prolonged periods or hunching on your computers/devices put a great deal of stress on the top vertebrae of the spine.
An upper cervical correction restores proper nerve function and body balance with measurable results. More importantly, it takes a holistic approach to treatment by addressing the root cause of problems rather than chasing after the symptoms.
Additionally, unlike traditional chiropractic care, which is often accompanied by the occasional twisting and turning of joints, the upper cervical technique is precise and gentle, making it the most ideal for sensitive patients.
