We take an integrative, whole body approach to improve and restore your health. The primary goal of this process is to ensure that your brain and your body are communicating clearly without any interference. We achieve this by making sure that there are no structural misalignments (bones or joints misplaced) which could be compromising this nerve transmission. Since the first place that a bone misalignment can occur is the upper cervical spine (your upper neck), and because our involuntary postural reflexes (contraction of muscles that dictate our overall posture) are governed and controlled in this area, proper full-body alignment is ultimately dependent on assuring the precise spinal alignment of the upper cervical spinal region has been achieved.
We take an advanced state-of-the-art approach when diagnosing, treating, and correcting the spinal alignment of your upper cervical joint structure. Three dimensional digital x-rays are taken of your neck, upper cervical spine, and skull. These radiographic films are then analayzed to provide each patient with extremely precise measurements of the misalignments in their cervical spine. The software we utilize to achieve this precision was developed by the Georgia Tech Engineering department and provides measurement down to the one-hundreth of a degree along all three planes of motion (along the X,Y, and Z movement axis planes). The final product of our analysis is in essence a genetic “blueprint” of the biomechanical misalignments that exist in your body.
We then review the films with each patient and provide our professional interpretation to help explain exactly why you are experiencing the symptoms that caused you to seek our help. Once we have an understanding of what is causing your problems, we develop a strategic plan of action for your treatment in order to correct your issues and keep you healthy and well for the long run!
Immediately following your X-Ray interpretations and findings, we will then utilize a percussive sound wave adjustment to properly restore the alignment of your skull, along with the first and second cervical vertebrae. Because of the precise calculations of our X-Ray analysis, the amount of force needed to restore proper alignment of these joints is so minimal that a sound wave, which the patient can’t even feel, is all the force that is needed to correct these joints.
Once proper alignment of your upper cervical spine is attained, there is an immediate physiological change that takes place within your entire body. This incredible alteration in the neurological process is what creates a balanced musculoskeletal platform. With level feet, symmetrical shoulders and hips, we have created a huge advantage in being able to not only easily restore the alignment of any other joints that have moved out of place in your body, but also now have a much greater opportunity for them to remain properly aligned keeping you out of our office!
