A neck adjustment is a precise chiropractic procedure that is focused on relieving neck muscle tension, helping to align your upper spine. Neck adjustments can be a great alternative to surgery and pharmaceuticals if you are looking for a less invasive approach to your pain.
A neck adjustment focuses on the upper two vertebrae of your spine, the C1 and C2, in your neck. Dr. Desai uses gentle chiropractic techniques, such as the NUCCA technique, to ease your condition.
How A Neck Adjustment Works
Like with a back adjustment, Dr. Desai will analyze your neck and spinal structure before making an adjustment. She will look for wear and tear in the spine
Dr. Desai will conduct a physical examination, paying special attention to the following areas:
Shape of the Cervical Curve: The normal cervical curve should have a reversed C-shape. Scans will typically show a reversed C-shaped curve or S-shaped curve in patients.
Changes in the Vertebral Bodies and Disc Spaces: Check the vertebral body's shape and the spacing between the discs. Neurological symptoms can include migraines, dizziness, pain behind the eyes, blurry vision, fatigue, focus, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), tremors, lack of sleep, torticollis, and more.
Health of the ligaments in the spine.
Compression at the cervical-occipital junction, which can cause neurological symptoms of the cranial nerves.
Nerve involvement at the spinal level.
Dr. Desai will use very specific analysis to address neck misalignment by using the NUCCA technique. This involves taking x-rays and measurements to fully understand your neck alignment issues and how to address them.
Getting a chiropractic neck adjustment is a safe procedure when it is performed by a qualified professional, such as Dr. Desai. She is a highly trained specialist who can perform a gentle adjustment to deliver maximum results after performing specific analysis of the cervical x-rays.
Neck adjustments are made using the NUCCA method, to deliver a safe and precise adjustment that is painless and comfortable. When adjusting one’s neck, the adjustment should be made gently.
Your neck may be a little sore after your adjustment, as the realigned vertebrae have moved slightly, and your body has to adjust to the change in position. This is a good sign; that means that the alignment has happened.
