Upper Cervical Care Videos
What is upper cervical chiropractic care (UCC)?
Though we welcome any of your questions when you visit our Ballard Seattle and Mountlake Terrace offices, we want you to feel completely comfortable the first and every time you visit us at Vitality Specific Chiropractic. If you have questions about upper cervical care, why it is important, and how it benefits you, take a few minutes to watch this video, which introduces the parts of the body involved in the adjustment process.
Brain to Body Communication
Upper cervical chiropractic care is important because it focuses on the two vertebrae, called the atlas and the axis, that allows for direct communication from the brain to the body. When these two vertebrae are misaligned, the brain's signals do not adequately reach all parts of the body, and this is when problems occur. Watch this short clip for a more complete understanding of how the brain communicates with the body and what the atlas and axis have to do with that communication.
What is a Subluxation?
Upper cervical chiropractic care has a vocabulary all its own, but don't let it bog you down. Simply put, a subluxation is a misalignment of one or both of the top two vertebrae in the spine. The real question is, why is a subluxation cause for concern? This clip explains just that.
