Before & After each of your office visits, the following measures should be taken to protect your adjustment and maintain your spinal alignment. Adhering to these guidelines will aid in a speedy recovery and help you reach your optimal health potential. If you have any questions about the proceeding information, please let us know immediately.
Avoid the Following BEFORE Each Office Visit:
2 Hours before your appointment: NO Sugar or Candy
4 Hours before your appointment: NO caffeine, cigarettes, chocolate, or use of a heating pad and/or ice pack on your neck or back
6 Hours before your appointment: NO over the counter drugs, pain relievers (example: Tylenol, Excedrin, Advil), antibiotics or antidepressants
Our scans measure brain and nerve function; the above products may affect our indicators which could result in an inaccurate heat reading. We need accuracy in these readings in order to assure success in your case. Pleas let us know if you have used any of the above products or other prescription drugs before seeing the doctor.
During Your Office Visit:
Depending on the outside temperature, as well as other variables, you will be required to acclimate to the temperature in our clinic. This will require you to be in our clinic for at least 15-20 minutes before you can be scanned by one of the doctors. Our scanning instrument is temperature sensitive and vitally important in determining the care we provide on each visit. If you need an upper cervical adjustment, your visit can last up to 60-90 minutes. This is due to the rest time required after the adjustment as well as a second evaluation to ensure proper alignment has taken place. If no adjustment is needed, your visit will last approx. 30 minutes.
The adjustments we make are designed to restore brain function and body balance, so the body will heal itself. As the body heals, symptoms and pain will come and go. Please be patient. We are not giving adjustments to treat your symptoms, however it is important to know when and where you are experiencing symptoms and/or pain.
Adjustments are ONLY given when our tests say you need one. Please don’t expect an adjustment based on how you feel
As our clinic treats many patients with migraines and sensitivities, we ask that you please keep any perfumes and/or body sprays to a minimum
3 Reasons Why You May Refer Someone to Upper Cervical!
1. People need help. There are far too many people suffering with chronic health conditions, without any alternative solutions to their problems. This leads to a dependency on medications, risky surgical options, and an overall lack in their quality of life.
2. Lack of awareness. Most people do not know that a misaligned spine can be the root cause of their health problems. This lack of awareness keeps people in a disease-management model of health care, oftentimes doctoring their conditions for the rest of their lives.
3. Great patients get great results. If you value the Revive UCC standards of care, chances are your friends, family, acquaintances will as well. By referring others for care you are helping similar-minded patients find the same types of solutions that you have found in upper cervical care.
