What is Chiropractic?
Chiropractic is a true health care delivery system that is based on the very important relationship between your spine and your nervous system, and your body's innate ability to heal itself that travels through this intricate system. As chiropractors, we work to restore the balance in your body's systems by restoring the communication along your body's information superhighway, the spinal cord. When there is interference along the spinal cord, bioelectric signals carrying vital information traveling from your brain to your body, and back again can become congested, delayed, or lost. By realigning the spine, this decreases this physiological stress which allows the body to heal in its most optimal, organic way.
What is Upper Cervical Care?
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is a very specific form of chiropractic that focuses on restoring balance to the upper neck, specifically the top two bones. These two vertebrae are designed to balance and support our heads while allowing the greatest range of motion of our entire spine. They also have the very important job of protecting our brain stems and spinal cords as they descend from our brain through these two bones. Because of this intimate relationship with the brainstem and spinal cord, when either of the top two bones become misaligned, or what chiropractors call subluxated, it can cause any number of disastrous health complications. There are only around 1200 Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractors that have done the extra post-graduate training in the entire world, and Dr. Leach is the only one practicing in the greater Redding area.
