At Kilian Chiropractic, we offer chiropractic care as part of a therapeutic practice that focuses on the body’s spine. Upper cervical chiropractic care is a rapidly growing form of healthcare that focuses on the intimate relationship between the first two bones in the neck (upper cervical spine) and a vital portion of the nervous system (the brain stem). With this type of treatment, chiropractors focus on the upper cervical spine, which is more prone to misalignment.

That being said, chiropractors and chiropractic experts aim to influence the alignment of the body to decrease pain and increase function and mobility. When performing a cervical chiropractic adjustment, chiropractors will apply gentle pressure on a joint that rests in-between two vertebrae of the spine for spinal manipulation. It is a non-invasive alternative to surgery or pain medication.

When there’s a misalignment in the cervical spine’s vertebrae, this can cause a whole host of uncomfortable symptoms and issues in the body. Signs that your spine might be out of alignment include back pain, neck pain, headaches, hip or knee pain and fatigue.

When your spine is misaligned for a long time, you can experience symptoms such as chronic pain, stiff joints, decreased mobility, sciatica, bad posture and discomfort when you sit, stand, or lie down.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Further Explained

The relationship between the upper cervical spine and the brain stem is essential to the body’s ability to preserve and restore health and general well-being. Many comparisons have been made of the brain stem as the control centre that extends down an opening in the base of your skull. This area is vulnerable to injuries or irritation around the upper neck. 

The brain stem works like a telephone cable, with thousands of individual wires (nerve fibres) sending signals back and forth between the brain and spinal cord to every system, organ and cell in the body. Every nerve impulse between the brain and the body must pass through the brain stem.

The nervous system is responsible for all communication within the body. It controls the immune system, emotions, vision, hearing, balance, breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, muscle tension, posture, hormones and every other function. Irritation or pressure within the central nervous system can interrupt communication between the body and brain, creating a variety of health issues that can be helped with a chiropractor.

The top two vertebrae — the Atlas and Axis — are especially vulnerable to injury or misalignment because they are the most mobile segments of the spine. If neglected, an Upper Cervical misalignment can lead to irreversible spinal degeneration and chronic ill health.

At Kilian Chiropractic, we base our care on the universal law of cause and effect. For every effect or symptom (physical or mental), we believe there must be a cause. 

Upper Cervical doctors focus their efforts on locating and correcting interference to the nervous system that may be the cause of your health condition. Correcting this interference can allow the body to heal itself naturally, without the use of potentially harmful drugs or surgery.

How Can Kilian Chiropractic Help?

At Kilian Chiropractic, we’ll start with a free consultation where we’ll review your health history. If you show signs of the Atlas misalignment, a professional will take X-rays — which can then be further analyzed.

The analysis of your personal X-rays will give our chiropractors some insight into how the misalignment has been affecting your health. The X-rays will also show the chiropractor how to devise a treatment plan that will best benefit you.

From there, you can relax knowing there won’t be any audible noise during your spinal adjustment. An Upper Cervical Correction is gentle and there is no forceful jerking, twisting, or pulling on the neck. The correction is applied using an exact and controlled technique that allows the head, neck and spine to return to their proper positions. 

Your chiropractor will adjust your spine with gentle pressure, to realign it successfully. This will restore balance to the body and remove the interference. You’ll also be able to view the pre- and post-adjustment X-rays together, to look at the visible difference.

Once your spine is realigned, your body can finally begin to heal. You can get pain relief without any of the aforementioned invasive surgeries or pain medications.
