How the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Technique Works
The knee chest upper cervical technique itself involves the patient kneeling comfortably on a padded cushion, and resting his or her chest on a special chiropractic adjusting table. Your chiropractor will position your head to the side at an exact angle, and then position his hands at the precise spot on your neck and deliver a quick, yet gentle thrust that adjusts the upper vertebrae of the neck (at the base of the skull) to their correct position. Some patients hear a pop when this happens, and the relief is immediate. The patient rests briefly in this position to enable the adjustment to set.
When you first visit with Dr. Bradshaw, he will give you a thorough spinal checkup to determine the location of any spinal imbalance (subluxation). He will also discuss your symptoms with you in detail so that he can make a precise diagnosis.
