Hey Doc! How long will this take?

How long? 

It’s one of the most common questions we hear from our practice members at some point during their care.  Everyone wants to know how long will it take for them to get better. The truth is that everybody is different and every body is different.  While we expect people to begin having symptomatic relief relatively quickly, the process of healing does take time.  Achieving your health goals does take time.

By removing misalignments to your upper cervical spine, we’re removing interference to your brainstem. Thus allowing your brain and body to communicate better, as well as allowing your life to flow more freely throughout your body.

As the body begins to heal, repair, and rebuild itself from the cellular level, it is important to ask yourself these questions:

“How long have I had my symptoms?”

“How long have I had my condition?”

“What is a reasonable amount of time for my body to heal?”




Remember back when you were studying biology?  If not, remember that the most basic unit is the cell.  Groups of similar cells form tissues.  These groups of different tissues form organs.  Groups of organs form organ systems.  Cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems combine to form a multicellular organism… just like YOU!

Your body is comprised of many different cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems all of which take different amounts of time to heal.  Different tissues take different amounts of time to heal, under optimal conditions.  When your nerve supply is interfered with, it can affect how the cells receive their information from the brain, thus affecting how they are replacing and repairing themselves.

The cascade effect due to upper cervical misalignments can be numerous, but more importantly, this causes an interference in the communication between the brain and the body, thus not allowing the system as a whole to function at 100%.

Your Doctors at Atlas Specific Upper Cervical Care specialize in removing this interference from the brainstem and have helped thousands of people, many with very little hope and could not find help anywhere, heal naturally from the inside out!
