What is the Knee Chest Upper Cervical
Chiropractic Technique?

The health of your whole body hinges on a healthy nervous system. When any part of the spine is misaligned, it pinches nerves leaving the spinal cord so they cannot operate that part of the body correctly. But when the spinal cord itself is pinched, at the base of the skull where it leaves the brain, a domino effect of problems and pains occur.

Our chiropractor Dr. Simmons has earned considerable post-doctorate training in knee chest upper cervical chiropractic adjusting to eliminate this upper cervical misalignment. This technique corrects the alignment of the upper cervical spine (neck vertebrae) so that the entire spinal cord functions correctly. Our patients who have had knee chest upper cervical adjustments report widespread, lasting pain relief, better energy levels and an overall boost in quality of life.

How Does the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Technique Work?

The knee chest upper cervical technique itself involves the patient kneeling comfortably on a padded cushion and resting his or her chest on a special chiropractic adjusting table. Your chiropractor will position your head to the side at an exact angle, position his hands at the precise spot on your neck, and deliver a quick, yet gentle, thrust that adjusts the upper vertebrae of the neck (at the base of the skull) to their correct position. Some patients hear a pop when this happens, and the relief is immediate. The patient rests briefly in this position to enable the adjustment to set.

When you first visit with Dr. Simmons, he will give you a thorough spinal checkup to determine the location of any spinal imbalance (subluxation). He will also discuss your symptoms with you in detail so that he can make a precise diagnosis.

What Are the Benefits of Knee Chest Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

The knee chest upper cervical chiropractic technique carries a long list of health benefits—the most popular of which is pain relief. Our chiropractor uses it to help people with conditions like:

  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Vertigo
  • Shoulder and arm pain
  • Back pain
  • Sciatica
  • Hip Pain

This is just a short list of the major symptoms that the knee chest upper cervical technique can resolve. Notice how one specific adjustment to correct the vertebra at the base of the skull and its neighboring vertebrae causes a positive chain reaction that improves function all the way to your feet? Proper upper cervical alignment enables your nervous system to direct all of your body’s systems properly for optimum health.
