If you have never looked into the world of chiropractic spinal manipulation, you could be missing out on an important modality for helping you enjoy optimal health, wellness, comfort, injury recovery, and prevention. Chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column ease pain, enhance joint motion, improve your posture, and help your nervous system function normally. That's why we're happy to offer this non-surgical healing modality at our chiropractic clinic.
The Purpose of Chiropractic Spinal Adjustment
The human spine consists of a complex arrangement of vertebrae, discs, joints, and the muscle groups that allow the spine to twist, turn, and bend. It also hosts the spinal cord, with major nerves running through the vertebral spaces to serve the rest of the body.
Unfortunately, many problems can afflict this delicate combination of moving and non-moving parts. Even the smallest subluxation, or joint imbalance, can limit joint motion, causing neck or back pain. Dislodged or herniated discs can press against nerve roots, producing neurological discomfort or weakness in the extremities while also affecting your systemic health. An unbalanced spine may throw the rest of your body out of balance, leaving you with chronic aches and pains.
Chiropractic spinal adjustment can relieve these problems. Dr. Anjannette Price uses a specialized manual technique that delivers a small but focused force to the Upper Cervical spine, restoring nervous system function. By normalizing your spinal alignment, we ease neurological symptoms, reduce muscular strain, and help your neck and back move more freely.
What to Expect From Your Adjustment Session
Chiropractic spinal manipulation can be performed safely on most individuals of all ages, including newborns. An initial evaluation analyzes your spinal alignment, checking for any imbalances that may be producing your health challenges. SF Upper Cervical Chiropractic will ensure that you are a good candidate for chiropractic adjustment before proceeding. Repeated chiropractic adjustments help the body accept the changes in joint position, although you may feel substantial relief almost immediately.
Don't be alarmed if you hear a popping or cracking sound during your spinal adjustment. This harmless phenomenon occurs when trapped gases escape from within the joints.
If you're ready to boost your health, flexibility, balance, and everyday comfort, our chiropractic team is ready to help you achieve those goals. Contact our clinic at 415.823.9707 to discuss the details of Upper Cervical chiropractic care and schedule an initial appointment.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Patients choose Upper Cervical chiropractic for its specific, scientifically proven “no guessing” technique. The Upper Cervical technique requires additional training for chiropractors because it works with the brainstem, a delicate yet most vital part of our nervous system.
Why Upper Cervical?
The brainstem is responsible for all of our automatic functions including heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing. It is also responsible for the flow of communication between the brain and the rest of the body. When this system functions on all cylinders, the body heals more effectively allowing for pain-free living, better sleep, reduced stress, and vibrant energy to name a few.
Practicing patient-centered care, we utilize the body’s natural physiological abilities to initiate the healing process and promote permanent change. At San Francisco Upper Cervical chiropractic, the goal is to not need the adjustment over time - less is more!
At San Francisco Upper Cervical Chiropractic, we utilize only state-of-the-art technology in order to determine where and when care is needed. This includes precise digital and green radiology for the specialized X-rays and computerized infrared thermography to objectively measure nervous system function. In addition, rest in our zero gravity chairs each visit ensure every adjustment is received at 100%.
