Upper Cervical Subluxation: 7 Facts You Need to Know

Read on to find out 7 important facts about Upper Cervical Subluxation (joint misalignments) in the upper neck!

  • Birth trauma can be the first form of injury. As the baby is being delivered there are large forces on the neck, especially the upper cervical spine! In an infant the bones aren’t fully formed so this can create long term damage if unchecked. This is why it is advisable to have your baby checked by an upper cervical chiropractic specialist.
  • Research has found this misalignment can cause both physical and mental disorders. The pressure caused at the brain-stem can affect how the body works and heals, resulting in pain or pathologies. However, this brain-stem pressure also prevents the brain stem working properly and can affect how it functions, contributing to problems like fatigue, confusion and in some cases depression.
  • It can be due to physical trauma, such as falls, surgeries, accidents, sports, neck posture or car crashes.
  • Medicine recognises and is producing research to show the link between deteriorated health and Upper Cervical Subluxation (not just Chiropractors!).
  • This Subluxation can be viewed on specialised imaging and the physiological effects can be recorded using nervous system tests.
  • Medication will not solve this problem as it is a physical issue.
  • After correction the vertebrae can hold for months or more at a time, resulting in fewer appointments and visits to a Singapore chiropractic centre!
