Upper Cervical Chiropractic and Structural Hygiene
We refer clients to Dr. Brigette Bowler of Essential Chiropractic in Ferndale, Michigan. Dr. Bowler's approach is based on the belief that the doctor is a tool in the healing process carried out by the patient. Why is upper cervical chiropractic different than general chiropractic? This discipline focuses on the first two vertebrae in the cervical spine - the atlas and the axis. These bones house the brainstem, and when wear and tear allows them to slip out of alignment with the skull, the brainstem gets pinched - a condition known as an OAA subluxation.
To protect the brainstem, the body adjusts somewhere else in the spine crooked. Atlas adjustment guides the body back into alignment with 1-3 adjustments performed over 9-18 months and regular Structural Hygiene guidance at visits and self-help techniques.

This adjustment is complemented by the knowledge and expertise with the facial and crainial bones and their proper symmetry and motion.

Brigette Bowler is the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I first went to her around 1987! I have tried other chiropractors when I moved out of the area only to have to go back to her to get relief and undo any damage done.
As well as being a gentler procedure by mainly adjusting the atlas, thereby allowing the spine to align itself from there, it does not lend the bones to pop out of their own accord from too much manipulation.
I found with regular chiropractics my bones would pop out of place too easily. I only need see her when I am out of alignment which can be years apart.
Brigette is also a fount of information and promotes and works with highly knowledgeable, effective cutting edge health practitioners.
