While upper cervical care is not always a cure-all it is oftentimes successful in giving people their lives back when all other forms of care failed. Upper cervical care is based on a few very simple principles.
The first is that the body is a self-regulating, self-healing system. The second principle is that the central nervous system, composed of the brain and spinal cord, is the master control system and is responsible for all functions in the body.
The third principle is that traumas adversely affect the structural integrity of the upper cervical vertebral bones and when the structure is misaligned it impacts the function of the nervous system. When there is an interference to function it can result in many symptoms and disorders, one of which is TMJ dysfunction.
