The human frame is integrated as a tensegral structure. Tensegral means “up and open” like an inflated balloon. This tensegrity occurs when the full posture of the body is centered and untwisted. When the body fully aligns its tensegral structure with gravity, it receives its optimal blood, nutrition and oxygenation. Breakdown of the body away from this position is called spinal misalignment.
Spinal misalignment is the fundamental cause of all disease because it compresses the body and initiates a long term “suffocation” of many cells, tissues, organs, and body systems. This breakdown affects our existence in three deleterious ways:
• The tractioning of the brain and spinal cord – the energy system
• The torsional stress on the muscular and joint systems – spasms, arthritis, progressive joint degeneration
• Compression of the whole body – decreasing blood supply to all systems
NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) chiropractic care is a drug-free, safe, natural treatment for many health conditions, including low back pain, headaches, migraines, neck pain, numbness/tingling, fibromyalgia and more. One of more than 250 chiropractic techniques currently used, NUCCA is a highly specialized procedure that measures the patient’s body misalignment and corrects it using science and geometry for optimal results. It is one of the few techniques that uses pre and post x-ray studies to both ensure and verify that a correction has been made
QSM3 (Quantum Spinal Mechanics) is an evolution of the NUCCA procedure. Building on this procedure, QSM3 is the most comprehensive algorithm to measure and correct the spinal misalignment from a broader 3D model.
What all of this means for our patients is that we use cutting edge procedures to provide the best care. While most forms of healthcare (both medical and alternative), focus on treating symptoms, we use the QSM3 procedure to get to the root cause of your problem. Dr. Jamie Stern, D.C. practices the QSM3 techniques in two Bay Area locations (Sunnyvale and San Francisco). She invites you to a life of optimal health, based on the principles of spinal balance and active healing, which are the foundation of the QSM3 method.
