What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Upper cervical chiropractic is an advanced specialty form of chiropractic with a history and development of over 80 years. The objective of this form of care is to identify and correct spinal misalignments of the upper neck, Atlas and Axis (C1 and C2), thereby removing pressure from the brainstem. Tension on the brainstem from misalignments impact the way our brain functions, the overall expression of our health, and our ability to heal.

What is a Vertebral Subluxation?

A subluxation is a condition in which the vertebrae of the spine are shifted out of their normal alignment, resulting in a structural and neurologic compromise.

Why is this Important?

Life flows through our nerve system to sustain and coordinate the functioning of every cell in our body. Starting with the brain, it funnels through the opening at the base of the skull (foramen magnum) to form our brainstem. The brainstem is the most vital part of our neurology. It keeps us alive, which is why we often refer to it as “Houston Control” or the “Main Breaker Switch”. 


More than 450 million nerve fibers criss-cross at the brainstem and continue on as spinal cord, to supply life to every cell, tissue and organ in our body. 


Perhaps your health issue is an expression of what’s going on on the inside, because a back problem can become a brain problem. Every time you visit the office, we assess your lifeline or “Houston control” to make sure it is free of nerve interference and operating at 100%. It’s also the reason we frequently see results in the office- we clear out the brainstem with a specific chiropractic adjustment, and you go home to finally heal. 

IT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE THE BODY DEPENDS ON ADEQUATE NERVE FLOW TO FUNCTION PROPERLY.

How does someone get Subluxated?

A persons’ first subluxation typically occurs at birth when they were assisted out of the birthing canal, and it goes undetected for years. Many childhood health issues are related to birthing injuries, which is why we encourage parents to bring their children in to get checked. 

 

 

Other times,  sporting injuries, whiplash injuries from car accidents, slips falls and bumps, and even daily emotional and chemical stress cause subluxations.  

How would I know if I’m Subluxated?

Subluxations may or may not cause symptoms and may go undetected for years, until a thorough chiropractic exam is done. The X-ray imaging reveals how long the subluxation has been present and how severe it is.

How does Dr. Gigliotti adjust?

Dr. Gigliotti uses a combination of hand and instrument adjustments. There is no twisting cracking or popping- upper cervical chiropractic is gentle and precise.

Will I have the rest of my spine checked?

You will have your whole spine and nerve system assessed and adjusted appropriately. The upper neck must be free of spinal cord tension before lower regions of the spine can be corrected.
