Your body is the best doctor in the world. It knows exactly what to do and when to do it. It requires no help, just no interference. Within each of us lives an innate intelligence which, through a flow of mental impulse, affects every function in the human body. Upper Cervical Chiropractic works by restoring your own inborn ability to be healthy. For your body to remain healthy, your nervous system must function at optimum performance. For your nervous system to function well it must be free of interference. By restoring spinal function with Chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference by misaligned vertebrae are removed, thus allowing optimal nervous system function and improved health.
At McIver Chiropractic Center we do a specific technique that focuses on the removal of interference at the upper cervical region. It is at this region where the brain stem resides. The brainstem is a complex extension of the spinal cord and is extremely unique. Nowhere else in the entire body is there such a complex integration of the nervous system. The brainstem is responsible for everything that occurs in your body. The brainstem controls every automatic function and response in the body, such as pain, allergies, digestion, blood pressure, diabetes, heart rate, body temperature, and more. When the brainstem and the body are able to communicate with each other freely, you are able to live life to it’s fullest. With one simple adjustment, we remove this interference and allow the body to regain complete communication and function at 100 percent.
McIver Chiropractic Center is proud to serve the Ionia, Michigan area and surrounding communities.
