Upper cervical chiropractic care provides a specialized approach to treating spinal imbalances. This approach focuses on alleviating pressure and misalignment in the upper spine. These adjustments can correct other spinal issues that lead to chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, scoliosis and other medical conditions. Maybe you’ve spent years searching for relief. With upper cervical chiropractic care in White Plains, you can experience freedom from your pain.
What Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?
Upper cervical chiropractic care corrects upper cervical subluxation, also known as misalignment, to encourage healing throughout the body. The procedure comes from the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) research. It relies on using precise biometric data to inform the treatment process.
NUCCA adjustments focus on the atlas bone near your brain stem. This top vertebra moves the most freely and can cause brain stem pressure, meaning it is essential to correct misalignments and stress here to heal the musculoskeletal system.
To practice NUCCA procedures, chiropractors must receive specialized training. Only a few hundred chiropractors worldwide hold the necessary qualifications to perform this treatment.
What to Expect From Treatment
An upper cervical chiropractic treatment begins with an initial appointment to assess your current medical state. During this appointment, your chiropractor will listen to your symptoms and perform diagnostic tests like precise X-rays to determine your misalignment. With a complete view of your spinal health, a chiropractor can recommend a treatment regimen. During upper cervical chiropractic treatment, you will receive gentle and minor adjustments to relieve pressure near the top of the spine. Chiropractors using the NUCCA method repeat adjustments as few times as possible to get the body to maintain alignment. Your chiropractor can also work with you to establish life changes, like stretches, to sustain progress. After your first treatment, the chiropractor will use the same diagnostic equipment from your initial appointment to determine how your body responds to the first adjustments. This process allows for the necessary changes to optimize your treatment process.
Conditions Treated By Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Small misalignments in the upper cervical spine can radiate to other areas of the body, causing pain and medical issues. Genetics, posture and injuries can lead to spinal subluxation. Upper Cervical Chiropractic provides a holistic approach to address the root cause of medical problems rather than focusing on symptoms.
