When health and healing messages can flow from the brain to all parts of the body without interference our body is more capable of healing itself. The brain stem extends down into the top several vertebrae of the neck. This is where our brain signals reach the nervous system to send commands to all parts of the body. When there is interference at the point where the head and neck join, our bodies are less able to function, brain signals are not reaching the intended parts of the body – the organs, joints, muscles, and vessels can’t function properly as designed.
Long term misalignment can result in chronic pain, discomfort, “Dis-eases” and the onset of many disease processes.
Dr. Dena King’s Upper Cervical Chiropractic practice uses “specific” Upper Cervical techniques. Referencing precision xrays, Dr. King will use manual adjustment techniques and sometimes instruments to re-position your atlas and realign your neck and head. This adjustment/correction to the atlas is gentle and specific. The change to how the patient feels can be quite profound and begins the process of healing for the entire body.
