Upper Cervical Care Affects Entire Body?
Upper Cervical doctors have long maintained that people without symptoms may benefit from Upper Cervical Care: that keeping the body free of nerve interference is a good way to help the body function better and be healthier.
Researchers decided to take people who have no symptoms, put them under Upper Cervical Care and then monitor various body systems for improved function. The author of this study reports that the available research does indeed “lend strong support to the popular contention that holding an Upper Cervical correction confers health benefits to people regardless of the presence or absence of symptoms.”
More than 20 research articles collectively document “significant improvements in respiration, range of motion, heart rate variability and autonomic function, endocrine function, cardiovascular function, immune function, muscle strength and overall athletic ability.” Improvements were also noted in “reaction-time and information processing, visual acuity, stress and reproductive hormones, healing/recovery time.”
The author concludes that since “these initial findings document objectively measured physiologic changes and their associated health benefits in nearly every major system of the human body, it is plausible that Upper Cervical Care may benefit every function of the body.”
