The leg balance test is an objective measure of functional leg length. This test observes whether your legs are even, or whether one is relatively shorter than the other. If your leg balance test reveals one leg shorter than the other, it indicates that the spinal muscle tone is imbalanced(fig.1). Imbalanced muscles are an indicator that the nerve system is irritated and causing one side of your body to be tighter than the other. When an upper cervical misalignment is present the leg balance test is imbalanced. (Fig. 2). Balanced legs indicate there is NO need for an upper cervical correction.

FIG.6 Precise Upper Cervical Correction. The correction is made based off of angles found on the x-ray to gently and precisely nudge the vertebrae back into motion from a locked position. this allows more joint motion and correction of nerve irritation.[/caption]
