UPPER CERVICAL CHIROPRACTIC
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a natural health care system that is designed to restore your body's ability to heal itself.
We do this by restoring the alignment of the upper cervical area (top two bones in your neck).
If the top two bones in your neck are misaligned,
(due to most likely traumatic events such as motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries and etc)
the communication between the brain and the body is interrupted and can cause numerous health problems such as:
* Headaches or migraines
* Dizziness or vertigo
* Fatigue or poor sleep
* Brain fog or moodiness
* Neck or shoulder pain
* Post concussion syndrome
* Tinnitus or ringing ears
* Poor immunity or sinusitis
* Constipation or diarrhea
* Pain, numbness or tingling
* Movement disorders
* Balance disorders
Upper Cervical Chiropractic technique is a specialty within the chiropractic field where it involves painless spinal correction.
This type of adjustment restores the body balance and re-activates your natural healing ability.
If the head and neck (Craniocervical Junction) is in an off-balanced or misaligned position, it can impede or block the electrical and chemical transmission of the nervous system, which controls all of your body’s functions. This interference to the nervous system is called a vertebral subluxation. This compromise of nerve function can hinder the body’s natural innate ability to restore and maintain health.
Published research studies have shown that when subluxation is adjusted, the body enters a healing process. When the nervous system function begins to normalise, the body can resume its natural path, and strive for health. The healing process can manifest differently for everyone. The healing process, among many things, elevates the immune system, increases blood and oxygen circulation and allows a deep sense of relaxation and comfort throughout the entire body. Simply put, absence of neurological compromise and expressing fullness of life is the result.
DIAGNOSTIC TOOL: CBCT (3D IMAGING SCAN) & TYTRON INFRARED THERMOGRAPHY
Initially CBCT was developed by the dental profession to better the accuracy of dental implants.
Recently upper Cervical chiropractors have been using the technology as it allows for greater certainty in determining how the joints of the neck and head have misaligned. The 3-D image produced by the CBCT allows the upper Cervical doctor to analyze each joint from an infinite number of angles which increase the accuracy in determining articular joint spinal misalignments.
Tytron: It is an infrared thermography scan that measures the heat coming from the surface of the body, allows us to determine a pattern of how your nervous system is working. Posture, muscle responses, and movement within the spine are also considered.
TREATMENT: GENTLE APPROACH (NO CRACKING INVOLVED)
Upper cervical chiropractic adjustment requires a completely different approach to the conventional spinal manipulative therapy.
That means there is no twisting, cracking or popping the joint of the neck. In Silverdale Chiropractic, the very first attempt of the correction is made by the hand held tool. It is called “IQ Impulse Gun”.
IQ impulse gun is an electrically working device with a very sensitive and smart sensor in it. Once it delivers the force, it calculates the repercussion and it will determine the depth and the frequency automatically and once the targeted joint is moving, and upon detecting a perpetual motion, then it stops automatically. It is the safest and reliable tool to approach such delicate structures in CCJ. Sadly for some people with very complicated anatomy and degenerative changes, IQ impulse can be limited therefore manual correction will be considered but still, no cracking and popping is involved in the process.
