The world of chiropractic care is as vast as it is diverse. Within this broad spectrum of care techniques, upper cervical-specific chiropractic stands out due to its targeted approach. But what truly differentiates it from traditional chiropractic care? Let’s dive into the details.

Traditional Chiropractic: An Overview

Traditional chiropractic care, commonly known as ‘full spine chiropractic,’ emphasizes the alignment of the entire spine. In this approach, chiropractors use a range of manual adjustments focusing on multiple vertebrae. The goal? To relieve pain, restore mobility, and bolster overall health. Typically, this method encompasses manipulations across various regions of the spine during a single session.

The Precision of Upper Cervical Care

In contrast, upper cervical-specific chiropractic zeroes in on the uppermost vertebrae of the spine, specifically the atlas (C1) and the axis (C2). This area is of paramount importance due to its proximity to the brainstem, a crucial nexus for nerve signals traveling between the brain and the rest of our body.

At Keystone Specific Chiropractic Center, our approach integrates the Knee Chest Upper Cervical technique alongside the side posture toggle technique. These specialized methods are tailor-made to address potential misalignments in the upper cervical area with unmatched precision.

The Role of Technology

A distinctive aspect of our practice is our commitment to harnessing the latest technology. Each visit to our center incorporates the use of digital infrared scanning technology. This cutting-edge tool enables us to assess the autonomic nervous system’s functionality, allowing us to detect inflammation or disturbances accurately. In addition, our use of precision x-rays ensures that we can determine the exact degree of any misalignment, ensuring our patients receive bespoke care tailored to their unique needs.

Why the Emphasis on the Upper Cervical Region?

Time and again, the importance of the upper cervical spine in overall health has come to the fore. Misalignments in this area can lead to a plethora of health challenges, from migraines and vertigo to more systemic conditions.

Why choose Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic?

While both traditional and upper cervical chiropractic methodologies offer valuable benefits, the choice often depends on individual health requirements. Given the upper cervical spine’s intrinsic role in our well-being, specialized care in this domain is often vital for those experiencing issues traceable to this region.
