The Orthospinology Procedure Revives an Unconscious Patient.

Witness the profound effect of Orthospinology as an Upper Cervical adjustment revives an unconscious patient.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Featured on "The Doctors" Television Series

Watch this special report on "The Doctors" documenting how a similar upper cervical procedure called, Atlas Orthogonality, has an amazing affect on chronic neck pain and related spinal problems, such as headaches and lower back pain. The Atlas Orthogonal approach uses the same upper cervical radiographs as Orthospinology, but differs in the type of instrument used to make the correction.This video is included here to inform the reader that there are other very similar techniques that address the upper cervical subluxation and many upper cervical doctors readily refer to one another as patients move or have relatives where there may not be a doctor practicing the same procedure. This video is a good overview of instrument based upper cervical adjusting. Dr. Patrick Kerr is featured. 

 


Correcting the Upper Cervical Alignment

"Before" and "After" X-rays are used to dramatically illustrate how Orthospinology upper cervical adjustments can correct the alignment, and curvature of the cervical spine. The cervical and lumbar spines normally curve to the front of the body, while the thoracic spine or midback, curves toward the back of the body. These curves are important to facilitate proper biomechanics, weight bearing, spinal stability and strength. The straightening of the cervical cord may hasten the development of osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease particularly in the lower cervical spine as the head is carried in a more forward position. This weight shift causes the neck muscles to tighten and the head weight distribution to concentrate on the lower cervicals accelerating degeneration. The upper cervical misalignment coupled with a reduced cervical curve can cause disruption to the circulation of cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) leading to headaches, dizziness, vertigo, sinus congestion, seizures and other head symptoms. Research is ongoing linking the upper cervical misalignment and impaired CSF flow to degenerative brain diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson's.  

 


Orthospinology - History and Overview

This brief video showcases the history and advancements of Orthospinology and its three forms of upper cervical adjustments: by hand; by a hand-held instrument and by a table mounted instrument.
