A patient-oriented brochure focused on explaining the various effects of the upper cervical misalignment on the body. This brochure is tailored to build the cause and effect relationship of the misalignment on the physiology of the body which results in the symptoms that a patient would experience. There is a big emphasis on focusing on the root cause of the problems, not just the symptoms.
“Upper cervical chiropractic care is a unique branch of the chiropractic field which evaluates and corrects nerve interference at the craniocervical junction. The craniocervical junction is made up of the joints between the skull and the top bone of the cervical spine called the atlas.
The upper cervical spine is structurally unique. Nerve signals traveling to and from the brain pass through the hole at the bottom of the skull and through the atlas bone before branching throughout the various areas of the body. These nerve signals carry vital information for the proper function of the body. The nerves that travel through the upper cervical spine need to be free of any interference that could alter or block signals from getting through clearly.
