Upper Cervical Adjusting Techniques

When you have had physical or emotional traumas (stress), tension can build up at the base of your skull and can pull on the meninges (the membranes that surround and protect the brain and the spinal cord). Meninges are attached to all the nerve roots that exit your spine and when the meninges are pulled it can irritate an or all of the spinal the nerves.

Upper cervical adjusting techniques release the tension in the meninges thus releasing irritation to the nerves.  The technique that is used in this office is non-invasive and usually painless.  Many people respond to their very first treatment with their symptoms relieved for minutes, hours or days.
