What Happens at A Chiropractic Appointment in Sebastopol

The Nervous System Controls All Functions

The nervous system controls every function and process of your body, including every cell, affecting your total health. If the nervous system is interfered with, then dysfunction will occur in the body causing symptoms and chronic conditions to manifest over time. A misalignment in the upper cervical region will cause interference to the nervous system.

Restricted or Distorted Brain Messages

Chiropractic Sebastopol CA Skeleton DiagramWhen head/neck misalignment develops and the body becomes imbalanced, the brain stem becomes irritated, restricting or distorting the flow of healing messages from the brain to that part of the body serviced by these irritated nerves. This can cause pain and suffering and decrease the quality of your life.

Here's How —

The re-positioning of the upper cervical vertebra is done by hand or by an instrument. Depending on what will work best for the patient, it feels like a light quick tap on the side of the neck as the vertebra is moved precisely back into its correct position. It is completely "underwhelming." There is no twisting of the neck. Patients are often surprised at how anti-climactic it is until, over a period of time, they feel their body's healing. The procedure cures nothing. It simply restores body balance and brain-to-body communication so that organs, limbs, and tissues can resume normal functioning. The body can now self-heal. That is why we see many different conditions responding to the same procedure.

Gentle Chiropractic - A good chiropractor can give each patient the exact adjustment that they need with no trauma, chiropractic adjusting is an art and skill.

Instrument Adjusting — Along with my hand adjusting I use the Laney KH2 handheld instrument because it gives a single 20-millisecond thrust and is able to arouse the Innate recoil in the patient's body.
