August 19, 2014
Hosted by Dorrin B. Rosenfeld, DC with occasional Co-Host Robert M. Woolery, DC
This show will be a discussion of Upper Cervical Chiropractic. This is much more than neck adjustments. It's called Upper Cervical because the top several bones in the neck encircle the brain stem.Thus by adjusting these bones, a Chiropractor can influence the immune system, respiration, blood pressure, or aches and pains throughout the body. Adjusting this area is like peeling an onion. The outer layer is influenced, then the next one is ready for action, then the one below, etc. It is a never-ending process to get to the cause. We will discuss several conditions for which this type of adjustment is particularly good.

This show is about how Chiropractic can help you whether or not you believe in it. This drug-free alternative to traditional medicine has the power to positively unleash the body’s own healing energy. Medical research is constantly demonstrating how Chiropractic care saves time and money compared to the Western Medicine paradigm of “mask the symptoms with drugs.”
You can realize that many of your conditions are fixable or can be helped. Complementary healing methods can often work together with spectacular results.
On the show we will talk about what “adjusting” means, the specific benefits of upper Cervical Chiropractic, several complimentary healing methods, how DC’s benefit chronic conditions, and specific neurological conditions like epileptic seizures or fibromyalgia. We will talk about this using current research, specific cases, and philosophy.
