At Turning Point Chiropractic, Drs. Jeff and Rachel use an Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic approach that includes no twisting, popping or cracking of the neck. They primarily focus on the relationship of the top two bones in the neck, called Atlas and Axis, while monitoring the rest of the spine. Those top two bones in the upper cervical area surround the brainstem, which is the most critical portion of the nervous system.
Upper Cervical treatment is focused on locating and correcting any alignment problems between the Atlas, Axis and brainstem that can cause many chronic health problems and symptoms. Those top two bones in the neck are the most moveable vertebrae in the body. Because the natural human response to trauma, an injury or simply a bump on the head, will realign your body underneath your skull, the pelvis will move and the hip will rise to one side. Tension is then placed on the spine, cranial nerves, the blood flow and therefore the whole nervous system.
It’s most important to remember that the nervous system is responsible for ALL communication in the human body. Since the brainstem is the central connection between the brain and the rest of the body’s nerves, any interference in the messages being sent due to brainstem pressure, will lead to a lack of communication between the brain and the rest of the body.
Turning Point Chiropractic does not include the treatment of disease, but we locate and remove the specific cause of interference in the nervous system. By doing this, we place the body in an environment where it can heal from the inside out and symptoms will be relieved.
