Upper Cervical Chiropractic has different techniques, including the Knee Chest technique. As the name suggests, this technique requires a patient to be in a specific position involving the knee and chest during the adjustment. Dr. Robert Gucciardo, your Howard Beach chiropractor, will ask you to kneel on a cushioned pad and rest your chest on a supporting adjustment table. The Knee Chest technique focuses on bringing back the correct alignment of the uppermost neck bones – the C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis). You can expect these when you get adjustments:
Consultation and tests
Dr. Robert Gucciardo will have to confirm if there is a misalignment in your upper cervical spine. He will assess your medical history and key health complaints and require an X-ray scan to view your neck bone alignment. This x-ray test is specific to the neck bones to identify changes in your posture and how long it would take to retrain your neck bones to their proper alignment.
Once a misalignment has been confirmed, your Knee Chest Chiropractic adjustments will commence. You will kneel and use the specialized chiropractic table to support your head and chest, with your neck turned to a specific angle necessary to your bone alignments based on your tests.
Once adjustments are complete, Dr. Gucciardo may require another x-ray test to validate the corrections made to your C1 and C2 bones. These results will confirm if your spine is back to its normal alignment or if more adjustments are needed.
