We serve Waimea and the surrounding areas with specific and gentle upper cervical chiropractic care. Upper cervical focuses on the heads relationship to the neck and how it affects the health of your spine and the overall health of your body. We use cutting edge 3 dimensional imaging and infrared thermography to identify exactly whats going on with your head and neck, specifically the top two bones of your neck.
The top 2 bones of the neck, which sit at the skull, are called the Atlas (C1) and the Axis (C2). A misalignment in theses bones may results in a compression or torquing of the the brainstem. Science tells us that our brainstem controls and coordinates our vital centers, including heart rate, respiration, sleeping, and eating. There are also many critical arteries and veins that pass by or through these bones which are responsible for bringing oxygen, blood, and nutrients TO the brain, as well as flushing toxins and wastes FROM the brain.
