The Benefits of Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Bothell
A subluxation or misalignment anywhere along the spine, especially in the upper cervical area, can cause a number of painful symptoms throughout the body. This can go on to hamper mobility and deteriorate the quality of life. Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a specialized type of chiropractic. It focuses entirely on manually adjusting the upper neck and re alignment of the upper part of the spine.
The spine is a primary constituent of the Central Nervous System. It is responsible for the transmission of signals and impulses from the brain to the rest of the body and vice versa. The upper cervical area is often the ground zero for most misalignments that disturb this vital transmission of impulses and leads to structural imbalances and dysfunctions inviting a host of painful symptoms across the body. Often times it is the atlas, a vertebra sitting at the top of the spinal cord that is the culprit. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care in Bothell aims to resolve the issue at root level and allows the body to heal itself naturally.
Benefits Of Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Bothell WA
Has Been Shown to Relieve Pain
One of the ways the body responds to a subluxation is by having pain and inflammation associated with the affected areas. When there is a disruption in the transmission of impulses through the nervous system, one thing the body does is respond with pain. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care realigns in most cases the top vertebra of the neck allowing the body to function better. By precisely adjusting the upper neck the function of the nervous system improves thus restoring the flow of impulses and as a result has been shown to eliminate symptoms including pain.
Helps You Sleep Better
Upper Cervical Chiropractic care realigns the upper spine and resumes the normal functioning of the nervous system. This allows patients to enjoy better quality of sleep. Furthermore, relief from constant painful symptoms adds to the quality of sleep that one is able to enjoy.
The nervous system is responsible for hormone regulation among other vital bodily functions. When there is a subluxation in the upper part of the spine, it can lead to hormone imbalances. By specifically realigning the top two bones in the neck, Upper Cervical Chiropractic helps regulate the flow of hormones and leads to improvement in overall mood. It balances hormone levels by boosting hormones such as dopamine and subduing the release of cortisol.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic care in Bothell realigns the body and puts things back into place creating the optimal conditions for the body’s immunity.

To sum it up, Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care allows the body to take its natural course of healing by adjusting the subluxations and resuming the crucial transmission of impulses from the brain to the body and vice versa.
