Disclaimer: our goal isn't to treat any particular condition but to restore proper neurological function to the body via a specific upper cervical adjustment. It just so happens that when the brain and body is communicating properly via the nervous system the body begins to heal naturally from the inside out.
A misaligned vertebra in the top portion in the neck can cause an abnormal functioning nervous system.
When the top vertebra in the neck (atlas) is in the proper position, the nervous system can function at its optimum level.
Upper cervical doctors use infrared thermography to determine whether your brain is communicating properly with the rest of your body (differentiating normal vs. abnormal nervous system functioning).
"Brain congestion leads to body starvation." - B.J. Palmer, D.C.
Balanced Nervous System: exhibits normal neurological functioning in the body
Unbalanced Nervous System: exhibits abnormal neurological functioning in the body.
Exhausted Nervous System: exhibits chronic levels of abnormal neurological functioning in the body
