What Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?
Just as the title implies, upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on the upper part of the spine. Dr. Clark and Dr. Van Horn specifically examine the atlas and the axis vertebrae, the first two bones of the neck, to correct spinal misalignments. But what is the importance of these two vertebrae? These two small bones play a key role in how the brain can communicate with the rest of the body. Focusing on this direct pathway from the brainstem to the spine can alleviate nerve interference right at the source of the problem. Gentle, precise upper cervical adjustments correct nerve function which will in turn improve the function of the entire body.
Pediatric Chiropractic Care
Infants and young children can benefit greatly from regular visits to Dr. Omar and Dr. Taylor of Experience Family Chiropractic. Upper cervical chiropractic care is both natural and safe for people of all ages, even young children. Children’s bodies are ever developing and changing. Children are also more prone to falls or accidents as they reach their milestones. This can place stress on the spine that can have a negative effect on a child’s overall development. Spinal misalignments in children can lead to problems nursing as infants or even affect their ability to learn as they get older. Pediatric chiropractic care from Dr. Omar Clark and Dr. Taylor Van Horn can ensure children have optimal central nervous system function for better sleep habits, improved development, and fewer health or behavior issues. Better health habits in younger children will lead to happier, healthier adults.
Chiropractic Care for the Elderly
As people get older, their bodies suffer from general wear and tear. This wear and tear of the musculoskeletal system can affect balance and mobility. It can also lead to chronic health conditions such as arthritis or increase the risk of slip and fall accidents for the older generation. Upper cervical chiropractic care can improve joint mobility as well as spinal alignment for better posture, balance, and overall health and wellness. Older adults who are under upper cervical chiropractic care from Dr. Omar and Dr. Taylor of Experience Family Chiropractic have an improved quality of life that allows them to continue to do the things they love.
