At Barrett Chiropractic, we utilize the most specific form of Chiropractic Care called Knee Chest Upper Cervical. This technique focuses on removing the interference in the upper part of the neck where the brainstem sits with a simple correction.
The brainstem controls every automatic function and response in the body, such as: sleep, digestion, respiration, blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, balance and equilibrium, and many 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. We at Barrett Chiropractic locate, analyze and correct pressure on the brainstem therefore removing nervous system interference which allows life to be expressed at it’s optimal potential.
Our purpose is to help you achieve your health goals with as few adjustments as possible.
It is estimated that there are only 1,200 chiropractors in the world specializing in Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic Care. Drs. Derek and Andrea have earned advanced post-graduate training in Upper Cervical Care.
Upper Cervical Care focuses on the top two bones in the neck. These two bones can misalign in 274 different combinations. Without proper analysis and radiographic findings, it is literally impossible to determine how to correct such complex and subtle misalignments. Often, Upper Cervical Doctors are looking for a millimeter or less of misalignment. Each individual person has their own unique misalignment which is why every degree of misalignment changes the type of adjustment they receive.
We utilize only State-of-the-Art technology in order to determine WHERE and WHEN care is needed. Our focus is on correcting the problem at it’s source instead of chasing symptoms.
Upper Cervical Practitioners take specialized x-rays in order to determine a patient’s listing. This listing determines the type of adjustment the patient needs in order to clear out their subluxation. The information from the x-ray is the foundation for the care delivered by the Upper Cervical Doctor. Therefore, it is imperative that the doctor utilize the proper x-ray equipment in order to acquire such precise x-rays. This results in an absolute level of confidence in the accuracy of the x-rays, which leads to proper analysis and therefore a proper correction for the patient.
All x-rays are developed digitally to eliminate the use of film and chemicals. This also significantly reduces the amount of radiation needed for an exposure.
Infrared Thermography is FDA approved as a neurodiagnostic procedure.
Thermography simply reads the heat from underneath the skin on the back of the neck, which is controlled by the brainstem, in order to allow us to determine if the adjustment is necessary.
Titronic Thermographic Technology does not require the use of any radiation and is our most objective measure used at Barrett Chiropractic. This procedure is used on every visit to objectively monitor the course of your care.
After every Upper Cervical correction, you will relax in our recovery suite. This allows the adjustment to integrate and hold properly. The last thing we want you to do is leave immediately after the adjustment and go right back to the natural stressors of life as this could potentially have an adverse effect on your adjustment holding its correction for any length of time.
