If found a precise set of x-rays are taken todetermine exactly what direction and how far you havemisaligned. 

Once ascertained the data is used in a precise spinal correctionto the offending vertebrae. Once the irritation is removed from thebrain-stem the body goes through a healing process.

“Upper Cervical practitioners hypothesize based on their successin addressing many health conditions that the misalignment of theatlas is blocking communication to various parts of the body andthereby affecting the body’s own ability to correct the problem.“

Over time an upper cervical doctor will monitor your case withobjective tests to determine if and when you need a correction. Thegoal of upper cervical care is to “hold” the correction for as longas possible. It is while the vertebrae stay” clear” of the spinalcord that healing accrues.
