Whether your muscles are sore or your golf swing has never been where you’ve wanted it to be, seeking chiropractic care can make a difference in your golf game. According to a report done in 2009 and issued by the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine, after a few weeks of care and practice, there was statistically, significant improvement in the golfers’ full swing performance after receiving chiropractic care through the study. In other words, those who participated in chiropractic care saw ample improvement in their abilities including how they swung at the ball as well as how far they were able to hit it. Could this type of improvement happen to you?

What Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

In order to improve the golf swing, seek out a doctor specializing in upper cervical chiropractic care, the type that is most likely to improve our game. This area of care focuses on the alignment of the C1 and C2 bones of the neck and the central nervous system. These are the two top bones in the neck. More specifically, this area of care focuses on how these bones and the central nervous system play a role in your health and wellness.

In the makeup of the body, the C1 vertebra works as a fuse box for all of the communication from the brain to the body. This is where the autonomic nervous system is located. This system is critical because it controls nearly all functions of the body, including the breathing rate, the blood pressure, your body’s ability to heal, and the postural control you have. However, problems can occur here and when that happens, it can lead to pain and discomfort.

What Does Upper Cervical Care Do?
