The underlying goal of upper cervical chiropractic care is to retrain the spine to maintain its proper position so that the body can naturally heal and remedy any problems that may occur. When you first begin seeing a UCC healthcare professional, you will likely have to visit on a fairly frequent basis, but over time, your visits should occur less often and adjustments will likely be quite minor. This means that your spine is, in fact, learning to retain its proper shape and position.
Editor's Note from Elizabeth Wisniewski: Properly caring for your body following a chiropractic adjustment is an important step in the process of retraining your spine. At the beginning your chiropractic adjustments may be more frequent but as your body is able to hold the adjustments for longer periods of time and your back bone is in proper alignment, the adjustments can be spaced out. Braces are not put on your teeth to straighten them for one day, it takes time and you have to do your part as well. Similarly the spine needs to be checked for subluxations and adjusted over an extended period to restore proper structure and function. This is key to living a healthy, happy, pain free life!

Growing up in a family of 6, at last count, has been a blessing and a curse from the moment I heard about my first chiropractic "miracle." The greatest thing about my situation is that I was allowed to grow up with a mind that was open just enough so my brain didn't fall out...
Editor's Note from Abbey Denaro: Many healing professions exist and are proven by science, clinical studies, and patient experiences, yet who is teaching most Americans about health? Most likely from those 30-second drug prescription commercials, sponsored by a billion-dollar corrupt industry. Chiropractors are often labeled as “quacks” and the successful and natural healing results are coined as “anecodotes”. Dr. Graeme Gibson discusses this topic and urges healing professionals to be the educators on health.
