UPCOMING OPEN SATURDAYS: 1/26, 2/9, 2/23
Welcome to New England Spinal Care located in Norwood. Chiropractic is one of the most amazing healthcare professions, but very few people understand what it's all about. This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Norwood chiropractors can help you and your family using NUCCA and QSM3.
UPPER CERVICAL CARE
Upper Cervical is a specialty in chiropractic that is practiced by only 1% of chiropractors. QSM3 is the newest addition to group of methods known as upper cervical chiropractic. Other upper cervical methods were focused on the misalignment of upper neck bones and the adjustment was given at the upper neck only.
Now, we still touch the upper neck, but look to at the whole body not just the upper neck bone(s). Most upper cervical methods rely on x-rays to measure the misalignment and direct care.
QSM3 uses x-rays and relies on postural data (comparative leg length, weight imbalance, shoulder and hip position, head tilt) to direct care and the adjustment. QSM3 adjustments typically reach a depth of 2-4 mm—so very light. (link to qsm3.com web page)
NUCCA and QSM3 CHIROPRACTIC CARE
There are many methods in chiropractic. The foundation of our office is Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3). QSM3 evolved from another upper cervical method called NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association).
QSM3 doctors look to understand the breakdown of the whole body so that we can release and decompress the body into more balanced and stress free state. Our method does not push or set the vertebrae into a position.
A gentle touch is applied on the upper neck in specific ways to release the pathways of tension that hold the body in its stuck, misaligned state. A majority of people notice a lighter, looser feeling as QSM3 gets you “off your nerves.” It is a very different experience.
