Upper Cervical Adjustments in Midland, MI

Advanced HIO Knee Chest


Understanding Advanced Hole-in-One (HIO) Knee Chest

Advanced HIO Knee-Chest Upper Cervical, also known as Knee-Chest Technique or Knee-Chest Chiropractic, focuses on the upper cervical spine, specifically the atlas (C1) and axis (C2) vertebrae. This technique involves the patient assuming a knee-chest position, kneeling on a special Simmons Angle Table, and resting their chest on padded support. Simmons Specific Chiropractic in Midland, MI, can offer the Advanced HIO Knee-Chest technique.

The health of your whole body hinges on a healthy nervous system. When any part of the spine is misaligned, it produces pressure upon nerves leaving the spinal cord, so they cannot operate that part of the body correctly. But when the spinal cord itself has pressure or interference at the base of the skull where it leaves the brain, a domino effect of problems and pains occurs.

Our chiropractor, Dr. Simmons, has earned considerable post-doctorate training in knee, chest, and upper cervical chiropractic adjustments to eliminate this upper cervical misalignment. This technique corrects the alignment of the upper cervical spine (neck vertebrae) so that the entire spinal cord functions correctly. Our patients who have had knee chest upper cervical adjustments report widespread, lasting pain relief, better energy levels and an overall boost in quality of life.

Enhance the Body’s Ability to Communicate

The Knee-Chest Technique is based on the concept that misalignments or Vertebral Subluxation in the upper cervical spine can interfere with the normal functioning of the nervous system and impact the body's ability to heal and regulate itself. This interference, if not reduced, eventually leads to disease. By correcting these misalignments, it is believed that the body's innate healing abilities can be enhanced. We know you are much better off without a Vertebral Subluxation than you are with one!

This also helps with pain relief and healing when the body can finally relax, versus being stuck in a chronic state of stress from pain symptoms.

How Does the Knee Chest Upper Cervical Technique Work?

The knee chest upper cervical technique itself involves the patient kneeling comfortably on a padded cushion and resting his or her chest on a special chiropractic Simmons Angle Table. This will position your head to the side at an exact angle, position the pisiform at the precise spot where the misaligned vertebra is, and deliver a quick yet gentle adjustment to the upper vertebrae of the neck (at the base of the skull) to their correct position. Some patients hear a pop when this happens, and the relief is immediate. Remember, this is not the goal. The goal is to reduce the interference to the Nervous System and allow maximum expression of it to ALL parts of your body. The patient rests briefly in this position to enable the adjustment to set.

When you first visit with Dr. Simmons, he will give you a thorough spinal checkup to determine the location of any spinal imbalance (subluxation). He will also discuss your symptoms with you in detail so that he can make a precise plan of action.

What Are the Benefits of Knee Chest Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

The knee chest upper cervical chiropractic technique carries a long list of health benefits—the most popular of which is pain relief. Our chiropractor uses it to help people with conditions like:

  • Headaches and migraines.
  • Neck pain and stiffness.
  • Vertigo.
  • Shoulder and arm pain.
  • Back pain.
  • Sciatica.
  • Hip Pain.

This is just a short list of the major symptoms that the knee chest upper cervical technique can resolve. Notice how one specific adjustment to correct the vertebra at the base of the skull and its neighboring vertebrae causes a positive chain reaction that improves function all the way to your feet? Proper upper cervical alignment enables your nervous system to direct all of your body’s systems properly for optimum health.
