Our entire body is controlled by the Nervous System. It controls everything including: movements to digestion to heart rate.
The Nervous System is so important to Body function; therefore, it is encased in bone (the Skull and Spine). In order for the nerves to go into the Body from its bony protection, the nerves must enter and exit through specific spaces from the Spine and Skull. Because the Brain controls the entire Body through the Nervous System, a spinal misalignment will cause interference in the communication from the Brain to the Body. When a misalignment occurs, the Nervous System functions less efficiently; thus, the proper function of every cell, organ and system in the Body is affected.
The most significant bones in the Body are the first two bones in your neck (Atlas or C1 and Axis or C2). If a misalignment occurs here, at where the head meets the neck, nerve irritation and interference occurs. This irritation and interference can and will effect the whole body, not just the neck. Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic care seeks to correct this misalignment; thus, allowing the healing messages to flow again from te Brain to the Body. This correction allows the Body to start healing and functining properly and efficiently.
