The human body may look the same, but the internal environment of the body is different due to differences in skeletal structure, the degree of deterioration of the disease in the affected area, lifestyle, outlook on life, death, and values. Therefore, the way the body heals after the adjustment and the accompanying healing reaction (also called ” Healing Crisis ” or “Reconstruction Phenomenon”) will be an integrated form of these factors.

More information about Reaction, please read the “Retracing” in the Clinical Report under “What happens after adjustment ?”.

Of course, there are people who are free from painful symptoms immediately after the adjustment. In general, the following reactions can be seen for about three days immediately after the adjustment.

  1. Drowsiness and fatigue.
  2. The symptoms that you usually complain of are once again strong.
  3. A change between the current symptom and an area of the body that has had problems in the past and is still incubating.
  4. People with intestinal problems may have diarrhea or loose stools. If you have diarrhea, drink fluids.
  5. People with low body temperature or occasional low fever may have low fever for a couple of days.
  6. etc. Just as the body changed from normal to abnormal (disordered), it will change from abnormal (disordered) to normal and return to its original state after the adjustment.

These are normal changes the occur during the natural healing process.

Read “Retracing” is a good reference.

Upper cervical chiropractic does not address symptoms or medical conditions as medical or general chiropractic does. Therefore, there is no guarantee that you will be relieved of your painful symptoms immediately after an adjustment.

Medical treatment is where the doctor treats the symptoms you complain of.

Medicine looks at the “Disease” part. Upper cervical chiropractic looks at the whole “Dis-ease” of the body. Therefore, no matter where you complain of symptoms, the adjustment is to one place in the upper cervical spine.

One place is the whole body. This is because your body is maintained and managed by your brain through a network of nerves that are spread throughout your body.

It is similar to the way people around the world are connected via the Internet.

The brain and the body communicate with each other through a network of nerves. Even if we are not aware of it, the body functions according to the laws of nature through the unseen power of the brain.

The brain is like a receptacle that receives information from the source of the laws of the universe, and it also has the ability to make the body function according to the laws based on that information. This ability is called inborn intelligence in chiropractic, and the body’s innate natural healing power is called innate healing power.

Innate healing power is a chiropractic term.

Upper cervical chiropractic is a legitimate form of traditional chiropractic.

Its chiropractic treatment is not by a chiropractor, but by this innate healing ability that works after an adjustment. Just as the body does or you do not know “when”, “where”, “how”, or “why” it got sick, you do not know “when”, “where”, or “how” it will heal after an adjustment. Your body’s innate “intrinsic wisdom” will determine this for you. Chiropractic is an Innate philosophy, science  and art.

If you can understand this correctly, upper cervical chiropractic adjustments are recommended.

Although chiropractic is generally and socially considered to be a medical field, upper cervical chiropractic does not understand it as a “medical practice” from a philosophical standpoint. This is because it is a “natural therapy” that expects healing through the power of nature. The least amount of human intervention is good. We let nature do much of the work.

In case of we need medical care in our daily lives, it is an occasion that the affected area of the body is at the limit of its strength (limitation of the matter) ,making daily life difficult or even life-threatening. Therefore, medicine is also an indispensable part of our lives.

Some people do not feel any change in their symptoms at all even after a few days have passed after the adjustment. However, the internal changes just before and after the adjustment can be compared and confirmed through measurement data.

Please be assured that it does not mean that the treatment is not working because you do not feel anything, or on the contrary, that it has become worse because you feel extra pain.

After the adjustment, your body’s internal environment will gradually change for the better.

It will be weeks later, months later, or even years later you will see the results of this process, which has become fresh water, just as the old water is replaced by new water, drop by drop, in the previously muddy water in the bottle.

For example, it takes about two weeks for a person’s skin, liver, and kidney cells to be replaced. Babies may not look like they are growing right after birth, but in reality, they are changing (growing). It will be several weeks or months later we see it.

Chiropractic emphasizes objective test results rather than subjectivity.

As long as the subluxation does not occur again, the body will change itself to its original state.

The chiropractic examination is for subluxation.

When there is no subluxation, it is “no adjustment”. It is determined that the body is in a natural healing process.

If you feel that there is no change, you should check your daily life to see if there is anything that is harmful to your body, and if so, change it.

Then your internal environment will meet the requirements for natural healing, and you may notice a change in your body.

In order to get better, you need to work on yourself.

If you have any concerns about your reaction, please do not hesitate to contact your doctor.
