Do you have to come back after receiving your first upper cervical adjustment?

A lot of people feel amazing after receiving their first upper cervical adjustment, but the healing actually isn't in the adjustment itself.

The healing happens when that adjustment "stays in place."

"Holding" is the term upper cervical doctors use to determine the adjustment has "stayed in place" from the person's previous visit.

We usually find it takes about 3 months to stabilize the upper neck.

Sometimes it can take just few visits for all the bone segments to "get back in place" where they need to be.

And for some people, they start "holding" their adjustment right away after their first visit.

It really depends on the case and how bad the misalignments are in those cases.

So for the second, third, forth, and even firth visit are just as important as the first because we have to make sure that adjustment "stays in place."

The longer the upper neck adjustment "stays in place," the faster your body is going to heal and the sooner you are going to get your life back.

Give upper cervical care some time.

It may take a few visits for everything to get back in place where it needs to be.

But, once the upper neck starts holding, your symptoms will start to dissipate and you will get your life back.
