Upper cervical chiropractic is a unique field of alternative healthcare that focuses on maintaining the delicate balance between the top two bones of the neck (known as the upper cervical spine), the skull, and the nervous system. The upper cervical spine consists of the atlas (C1) and axis (C2). These two bones are completely different from all other vertebrae in shape and movement. This area of your spine is truly the power switch of the body because of its intimate relationship with the brain and brain stem.
Trauma from events such as falls, auto accidents, or a stressful birth process can cause misalignments in the upper cervical spine that throw the nervous system out of balance. This is what chiropractors call a “subluxation” – a misalignment of a vertebra that puts pressure on a nerve. However, when C1 or C2 are subluxated, it’s not just any nerve that gets affected! A upper cervical subluxation can cause irratation to the brain stem and spinal cord thus affecting the health of the body globally.
