Upper Cervical chiropractic techniques are among the most published within scientific literature from the chiropractic profession. These techniques are the most quantifiable and reproducible in application, which make them easier to research. This is why the number one medical publisher in the world, Lippincott Williams Wilkins, published an entire textbook on the technique Orthospinology Procedures, which is what is utilized here at Austin Life Chiropractic.
You might ask, “What does chiropractic have to do with blood pressure, asthma or any other health problem other than the spine?” Great question! Your health and the presence of disease is the consequence of multiple factors. The science of chiropractic is based upon the sciences of anatomy and neurology. The field of neurology tells us your central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) controls, coordinates, and regulates all physiological processes within the body. There is no other system in the body that has this much control of your health.
Chiropractic care does not strive to treat any specific condition or disease. Its purpose is to restore optimal function to the central nervous system through proper alignment of the spine, thus restoring normal physiology and adaptation of the body, allowing it to heal itself.
