Upper Cervical Chiropractic, a specialized technique focusing on the unique relationship between the top two bones in the neck and the brainstem, aimed at removing interference from the nervous system. Pressure at or around the top of your neck can put stress on your nervous system and keep your body from functioning optimally. By locating and correcting specific areas of interference in this area, an upper cervical chiropractor can help your body overcome many health issues as well as help your body prepare for life’s future obstacles.
Specifically, the brainstem, the seat of the autonomic nervous system(ANS), controls your body's responses to the presence or absence of stress. Pressure on the upper cervical area due to misalignment of the top two bones in the neck creates an imbalance in your ability to manage outside stress over internal healthy function(i.e. digestion, respiration, circulation, hormone regulation, etc.). Removal of this interference restores communication from the brain to the body and brings balance to the nervous system.
Upper cervical chiropractic is a specialized technique of chiropractic that requires additional education and certification outside of the traditional chiropractic doctoral program. Dr. DiNunzio has been training in the Upper Cervical technique since 2018 while still in school and has been fortunate to learn from many Upper Cervical mentors across the country, as well as going on a chiropractic mission trip to Columbia, South America serving thousands with the gift of upper cervical chiropractic care.
