Upper Cervical Chiropractic
At Liv Chiropractic, we offer upper chiropractic care. This means that, unlike in traditional chiropractic care, we work exclusively on the upper two vertebrates of the spine. Because this region of the spine is instrumental in regulating the nervous system and the rest of the body, we are able to effectively address your concerns and offer preventative care by focusing on these two vital vertebrates – the atlas and the axis.
While most of the spine is held in place by bone, these two vertebrates are held in place by muscles and ligaments. This gives the cervical spine greater flexibility and a greater range of motion. At the same time, it makes the region more prone to misalignment, injury, and trauma. Because this area is so important to overall health and also so vulnerable, proper cervical spine chiropractic care is essential to holistic wellness.
The upper two vertebrates of the spine are closely connected to the brain stem, which is the control center of the nervous system. Because of this close relationship, misalignment of the cervical spine can result in a host of nervous system malfunctions and challenges. Ensuring that the atlas and the axis are in proper alignment can address and prevent disorders of the immune system, the emotional center, hearing, balance, heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, digestion, hormones, posture, and more.
Liv Chiropractic operates on the philosophy that every effect has a cause. We use diagnostic tools and time-tested chiropractic techniques to identify the root cause of any illness or health challenge and remove the cause – promoting wellness and often eliminating the need for medications or more invasive treatments.
Because the upper cervical spine is so sensitive, we perform gentle alignments. With subtle motions, we ease the vertebrates into place and restore balance to the body.
