Are You Walking Around With a Pebble in Your Shoe?

Construction worker in apinImagine walking around with a pebble in your shoe, day after day. You won’t be able to ignore that pebble as it will bother you—your foot will hurt. Every step will be uncomfortable. Sure, you can take the shoe off or you can put a bandage on your foot or padding on your toe. But the fact remains that because that pebble is still there that discomfort will persist.

So when the upper cervical spine misaligns, everything below that is going to compensate. If we start to fiddle with compensatory areas, sometimes we can either cause different problems or it’s just going to come back.

Correction Is Our #1 Goal

At Berner Upper Cervical Chiropractic our first primary goal is to correct the upper cervical spine, allowing everything to unwind and move properly. We’ll help get rid of any of those compensations. Then if there are still other things that need to be addressed, then we will go ahead and adjust those.

Gentle and Specific Adjustments

When most people hear of chiropractic, they imagine a forceful or uncomfortable adjustment. They think they’ll get “cracked” or contorted like a pretzel perhaps. That’s not the case at our practice. You won’t hear popping sounds or be placed in painful positions.

In addition to being comfortable, our adjustments are highly precise. That’s because we use a laser-guided instrument that addresses the area to be adjusted at a highly specific vector. The adjustments use light force, applying only about 3-5 pounds of pressure to realign the atlas back underneath the skull.
