We are often asked, “What kind of conditions, what kind of ailments do Upper Cervical Chiropractors treat?” Well, that’s a good question. Actually, we don’t treat any ailments.  We don’t treat conditions, because what we want to do is correct the underlying cause of the health problem, not necessarily treat the condition itself.

To treat a condition is basically to treat the symptoms. What we do is, we treat the patient. We want to maximize whatever your full potential is, to make sure that your body can function as its optimal level. Now, as that happens, a lot of times patients come into us with a wide range of conditions that respond really well to what we do, but we’re not treating the conditions. We don’t treat fibromyalgia, we don’t treat multiple sclerosis, or diabetes, or digestive disorders. We don’t even treat neck pain and back pain. What we do is we check the body out to see if there’s some underlying problem, a cause that could, as a result, lead to a wide range of conditions. Then, if there is, we correct the cause, allowing the body to actually do the healing.

No Doctor has ever healed anyone in the history of mankind. All healing comes from within. People that treat conditions are actually just treating the symptoms, which usually mean they’re eventually going to come back. What we want to do is find out if there’s a problem within your body. If there is, if we can correct it, we don’t change what we’re doing based off of your particular symptom or condition. We do the same thing for every person, it just so happens that your cause may be creating one condition, while the same cause in somebody else may be creating a different type of symptom, or disease process. At the Upper Cervical Spine Center, we’re not going to treat you for your condition.

We’re going to treat you for you. We’re going to make sure that your body’s lined up perfectly, that your nervous system’s functioning at its optimal potential, because the nervous system is what actually heals you.  Interference to the nervous system is what creates these problems. If we can maximize your potential, get the nervous system functioning fully at 100%, then your body’s going to work like it’s supposed to, the way it’s designed to. In the process, we often see these types of conditions or symptoms to start to disappear. Get to an Upper Cervical Doctor, just let them check you. At the very least, maybe you can prevent developing conditions like this.
