What Is Upper Cervical?

As an upper cervical chiropractor, my objective is to use my knowledge and skills to help restore your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Upper Cervical Chiropractor St Louis, Dr BagleyHealth problems will respond to the chiropractic corrective procedure, if there is interference in the messages the brain sends to the body. Brain messages leave the brain by way of the brainstem, pass through the neck, down the spinal cord and out over the nerves to all parts of the body.

We are not consciously aware that these messages exist but the heart keeps pumping blood, the lungs keep breathing air, the stomach keeps digesting food and the thousands of other chemical changes going in the body continuously are all a result of messages sent by the brain. Very small changes in the position of the spine can interrupt and change these messages which can result in the body not working correctly. Over time some people develop symptoms like back pain, neck pain, headaches, migraines, facial and jaw pain (TMJ), numbness and tingling in arms or legs, digestive distress, mood and behavior changes, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and even some high blood pressure. When these problems are related to stress in the nervous system, it is likely that upper cervical can help.

Along with a detailed exam, I take precision digital x-rays to determine if there is misalignment at the top of the neck that could restrict the nerve messages. If your x-rays indicate misalignment, I analyze them to develop a unique corrective adjustment for you.

Our First Objective:

We use your unique x-ray formula to correct the misalignment and restore the brain’s ability to send unrestricted healing messages to the body. When free from interference, your body can begin its natural self-healing process. The corrective adjustment is painless and requires no popping, pulling, twisting or jerking motion of the head and neck.

Our Second Objective:

On follow-up visits during the body’s relief, correction, and stabilization period, we monitor your ability to maintain the alignment correction in order to prevent any interruption in the body’s healing process. This process takes different amounts of time for different people. Most people feel relief of some symptoms during the first few weeks of care.

Upper cervical chiropractic is both a preventive and a crisis health care service for children and adults of all ages. I have helped newborn babies and great-grandparents. Come into the office for a free consultation to talk to me about your issues so we can determine if this type of healthcare can help you.

Yours in health,

Dr. Beth Bagley
