Orthospinology is a sub-specialty of the chiropractic profession, focusing on aligning the upper cervical spine. It is one of several upper cervical procedures utilizing radiographs (x-ray films) of the top two bones of the neck and the base of the skull (the upper cervical spine) to determine a misalignment or subluxation that may create interference to the functioning the nervous system.
Misalignment of the Upper Cervical Spine
When a misalignment of the upper cervical spine occurs, the central nervous system can be stressed in a variety of ways that can cause negative health consequences. The chiropractic profession is founded on the principle of spinal misalignments or subluxations compromising the functioning of the nervous system. When the nervous system is compromised, the ability of the body to self regulate and self heal is also compromised because the nervous system is the master coordinating system in our bodies.
Misalignments of the upper cervical spine effect the spinal cord, and therefore the central nervous system directly and that is why it is so critical to be specific and gentle when trying to correct these misalignments and why, if left uncorrected, many health problems linger.
