Why you would benefit from an upper neck adjustment.

Why you would benefit from an upper neck adjustment.

Your medulla oblongata (brainstem part) is the bottom-most part of your brain. Its location is where your brain and spinal cord connect, making it a KEY conduit for nerve signals to and from your body. It also helps control vital processes like your heartbeat, breathing, and blood pressure.

The purpose of the Upper Cervical Chiropractor is to locate the vertebra in your spine that is out of alignment (subluxation) pressing on your brainstem shutting Life off from your brain into your body. The brain and the spinal cord have no pain sensation. That is why it is so important to get checked by Dr. Sheehan. This way you make sure the medulla, which is a KEY part of your nervous system, does its job like:

Managing heart, circulation, and breathing.

The atlas is managing other automatic processes like coughing, sneezing, swallowing, vomiting, and maintaining your balance.

Sending nerve signals from the brain to the body and back.

Dr. Sheehan is a Chiropractor NOT a Medical physician, but is a Holistic doctor. Her main purpose is to locate the vertebral motion segment in your neck (or spine) that is “out of sync” (Vertebral Subluxation) interfering with the Life-giving Nerve Energy transmitted between the brain and the body. Her first intention is to give that adjustment at the right place, at the right time and in the right way. It’s not a shove but a high velocity (50ms) low amplitude toggle recoil adjustment that arouses your body’s Innate Intelligence to put that vertebra back where it needs to be in order to restore back the energy flow. Because the adjustment is so fast, the patient barely feels anything.

Once the correction is applied, in order for the body to maintain long enough its position naturally, the patient needs to return for a period of time and let Dr. Sheehan re-check the spine and make sure the subluxation has not returned.

We at Sheehan Chiropractic are here for you.

Thank you for your patronage,
