Chiropractic Care in Marietta

chiropractor adjusting backAs a chiropractor, Dr. Berner believes in the power of the body to heal itself. He explains to patients that chiropractic treats misalignments in the spine. These may be caused by accidents or injuries that tear loose the connective tissue which holds the spine together.

Once weakened, the spine begins to lock down into a stress position. You can still move and do things, but the stress remains. Some signs you might notice include one leg longer than the other; one hip higher when standing; slight twisting of the body; leaning to one side; unbalanced muscles; or abnormal movement.

In time, the gradual wear and tear breaks down the spine, leading to arthritis. Chiropractors find the misalignment, correct it, and bring the body back into balance.

Gentle Care for a Special Area

At Berner Upper Cervical Chiropractic, our focus is on upper cervical adjusting techniques. Every nerve in the body either passes through or originates at the brainstem, the most neurologically important area. Unprotected by vertebrae, it’s extremely vulnerable to misalignment and injury.

We use advanced X-ray technology to get a precise 3-D image of the craniovertebral junction to use in conjunction with computer software prior to adjustment. This ensures your adjustment is uniquely suited to your misalignment.

In addition, Dr. Berner may use the Pierce Results System (PST), a biomechanical analysis of spinal motion to determine loss of spinal function. This adjustment is done with hands and instruments.

Using upper cervical care, we’ve helped patients with the following:
