Upper cervical chiropractic care in Bothell deals primarily with misalignments and subluxation in the upper part of the spinal cord. Most often, the issue lies with the top most vertebra called the atlas. The atlas sits at the top of the spine where it enters into the head and connects with the brain. A subluxation or misalignment in this area can cause a number of painful symptoms cross the body. Besides, the atlas is responsible for 50% of the range of motion of the head.

When perfectly aligned, the atlas sits right up underneath the skull and right in the centre of the neck. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care specializes in dealing with this part of the spinal cord. It seeks to manually realign the upper part of the spine which then goes on to resume the essential transmission of impulses and signals from the brain to the rest of the body and vice versa. This realignment has positive impacts across the whole body and on the overall health and wellbeing.

One of the positive impacts that Upper Cervical Chiropractic care in Bothell has been shown to have on the overall health and well being is the resumption of mobility. A pinched nerve here or even a slight misalignment, especially in the upper cervical area can cause hampering and restriction of movement in an entirely different, seemingly unrelated part of the body. Any misalignment in the upper cervical area, where the crucial transmission of impulses originates, can have its impact all across the body. Similarly, when the misalignment is corrected with Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic care, it has a positive impact across the body and improves mobility considerably.

Better Sleep

When the upper spine is realigned to its rightful place, the transmission of impulses from the brain to the rest of the body and vice versa can resume. With the nervous system functioning properly, often times the patient is able to enjoying a higher quality of sleep which in turn has arching positive impact on the quality of life, overall health, and general well being.

Hormone Regulation

Among other things, the nervous system regulates hormones that are responsible for a number of vital bodily functions. When there is a misalignment in the upper cervical area, it can lead to hormonal imbalances. Upper Cervical Chiropractic care will ensure that the atlas and axis are functioning properly. As we have seen with other patients, when the top two bones in the neck are functioning properly hormone regulation also functions more optimally. With that, the mood of the patient improves as the correct amount of dopamine is pumped through his or her system which allows an overall improved quality of life.

To sum up, Upper Cervical care allows the body to take its natural course of healing by adjusting the subluxations and spinal misalignments and resuming the crucial transmission of impulses from the brain to the body and vice versa. This goes on to impact the overall health and general well being through the resumption of a mobile and active life, ability to sleep better, experiencing better moods, and being generally happy and more productive.
