Upper Cervical/Brain Stem

This is an integral component of Chiropractic that deals with Subluxations of C1(Atlas) and C2(Axis).

Upper Cervical Subluxation is a misalignment of a vertebrae in the upper neck(cervical spine) causing torsion, inflammation and compression to the Brain Stem, Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerves.

The Brain stem (Medulla Oblongata) extends thru the Foramen Magnum into the opening between C1(Atlas) and C2 (Axis). This is the highest area of neural activity and has the most profound effect on health and function. Due to the amount of mobility in this region it also can be the most unstable and prone to subluxation.

Our Approach:

X-Rays , Postural Analysis and Heat Reading Instruments reveal the presence of Subluxations.

Corrections to the Upper Cervical Spine are done with various techniques:

  • Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific
  • Side Posture Toggle
  • Gonstead Cervical Chair
