Chiropractic Care

The nerves that run throughout your body are responsible for telling muscles to fire, organs how to run, and your body how to function optimally. The brain sends messages to the body and the body back to the brain. Immediately after leaving the brain, on their way down the spinal cord, these messages must first pass through atlas, the top bone in the spine. Atlas surrounds the brainstem, and is thus very important. The slightest misalignment of atlas can interfere with these messages that control your entire body and can cause health problems.

We Do Not Treat Symptoms

Nerve interference can be removed through the chiropractic adjustment. Note that chiropractic does not directly treat your condition. We remove nerve interference that can cause many common issues, such as

  • Brain fog

  • Hip Pain
  • Knee pain
  • Low back pain
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Neck pain
  • Post-concussive syndrome
  • Seizures
  • Shoulder problems
  • Sinus congestion
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Vertigo
  • Visual acuity

Not Your Average Chiropractor

Dr. Erena is an expert the cranio-cervical junction and atlas (C1). Due to the fact that atlas surrounds the brainstem, very specific and specialized analysis techniques and adjusting procedures are necessary to care for it properly. Dr. Erena’s goal when adjusting your atlas is not just to fix the misalignment, but to remove nerve interference, pressure off of the brainstem and restore proper cerebrospinal fluid and blood flow to the brain. She does this using the Orthospinology technique, a type of upper cervical based care. Due to the fact that she is very precise in her adjustment, there is no popping, twisting or cracking involved.

Gentle, Science-Based Care

When it comes to your health there is no guesswork. Instead, we utilize before and after x-rays, along with a series of other checks. Your x-rays are analyzed, and from those x-rays specific measurements are obtained to determine exactly how to adjust you. Dr. Erena will use this to actually measure out the precise angle and factors to adjust you at. Due to the high level of specificity very little force is required, making this care safe for all ages.

Once your atlas is holding well, Dr. Erena can address other areas of the spine if required. For full spine care she utilizes and is certified in the Pierce Results System.

How Do You Know If This Type Of Care Is Right For You?

Upper cervical chiropractic care requires a lot of additional training and there are not many upper cervical doctors out there, so you may have never seen an upper cervical chiropractor before. One of the first things that happens when your atlas misaligns that you will notice is the muscles in your neck and low back get very tight. They do this to prevent the atlas from misaligning more in order to protect the brainstem. As this happens, your posture will also be affected and you will have slightly un-level hips that can lead to all sorts of additional problems, one being low-back pain. As mentioned above, nerves must first pass through atlas before proceeding to their final destination in the body, so potential areas effected by atlas are many.
