It is easy to create a daily routine that does not include taking care of those that seem less significant. We want to think our bodies will adjust themselves, but we bang and bump our body and they become unaligned. Making sure your posture is correct ensures your body is rebalanced, so there is less stress throughout your body.
When your spine is not aligned, the rest of your body needs to make up for that misalignment. Muscles
throughout your neck, back, legs, and arms need to make up for the job your postural muscles are meant to do. This causes your body to go “out of whack,” and that leads to neck and back pain. The good news is Upper Cervical can help correct your body’s misalignment.
What is Upper Cervical?
Upper Cervical Chiropractic, also called Upper Cervical, fixes the misalignment of the spine by focusing on the upper vertebrae in your spine. The technique is not forceful, so there is no cracking of bones. Upper Cervical uses a technique that leverages the upper cervical, so the body can adjust itself.
Why is Upper Cervical Better?
By returning the head to a balanced position on top of the spine, those muscles that are meant to carry that weight can act according to their proper function. And those muscles that are not meant to carry that extra weight can act according to their proper function.
Over time, this focus on spinal adjustment will cause the body to stay in alignment for longer periods of time. This mean you may not get adjusted at every chiropractic visit but you will most like need to be adjusted more when you first start seeing your chiropractor. The objective is not to correct an issue that does not exist, rather it is to only adjust you when there is a need for it until there is no need for you to come in for an adjustment.
