What To Expect
How Our Care Works
Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth
Upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on the relationship between the structure of the body and the functional integrity of the nervous system. The upper cervical spine protects the highest neurological control center in the spine or brainstem. The nerves that originate in the upper cervical spine directly control the function of the head, eyes, ears, nose and throat. The vagus nerve, which originates in the upper cervical spine, controls many vital functions. These include the body's stress response, blood pressure and digestion.
Postural misalignments occur three-dimensionally and have both structural and neurological consequences. Every misalignment stems from a structural injury and a response to that trauma. The wisdom inside of us is busy working to maintain our upright position to minimize our three-dimensional collapse under gravitational stress and our diminishing energetic value over time.
Any interference between the brain and body may decrease healing response and contribute to disease, infirmity and sickness. At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth, LLC, our team of upper cervical chiropractic professionals focuses on removing interference so the body can heal naturally without the use of surgery or medications.
What Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?
Upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on correcting spinal misalignment, also called spinal subluxation. While this type of care is delivered through the cervical spine, it affects the spine as a whole.
Upper cervical care is precise and gentle and does not require the twisting and turning typically associated with traditional chiropractic care, making it ideal for sensitive patients. Upper Cervical care recognizes that there is an ideal position for the human framework. Anatomists have defined the human structure as “Tensegral”, physiologists have defined its fascial connections and function, and 25 years of research have shown the deleterious effects of bio-tensegral breakdown.
At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth, LLC, our team of upper cervical chiropractic professionals determines the neurological and biomechanical changes that may be the underlying cause of a patient's current health challenge. The misaligned spine may interfere with the brainstem and spinal cord, leading to dysfunctional or ineffective nervous system signaling.
What Is the QSM3 and NUCCA Method?
The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique focuses on the upper cervical spine's unique anatomy. It's a comfortable, safe and reliable way to realign the spine.
A progression of the NUCCA chiropractic technique, Quantum Spinal Mechanics3 (QSM3), uses X-rays and postural analysis to measure spinal misalignment and determine the best way to release the postural breakdown to stimulate the body's natural healing response.
How Does the QSM3 Technique Work?
The upper cervical spine influences the entire spine's alignment, including the hips' rotation and tilt. The QSM3 method takes an all-encompassing approach to correct the cause of discomfort and pain, which in turn affects the entire spine. The upper cervical technique does not involve popping, twisting or snapping of the spine.
The QSM3 technique is an evidence-based approach to adjusting the upper cervical area. If the head and neck are properly positioned over the spine and pelvis, it creates a position of ease for the spinal joints and related nerves. Correcting spinal mechanics removes pressure from spinal joints and nerves, which can relieve pain and promote the healing of damaged tissues. An upper cervical chiropractic professional will use objective evaluations to track your progress throughout your healing process.
