From An Upper Cervical Chiropractic Perspective

Six stories of healing you need to hear to believe

“Six stories of healing you need to hear believe” is the subtitle of a spoken word audio program produced by chiropractors Dr. Zachary Ward (Auburn Hills) and Dr. Josh Stockwell (Ann Arbor) for a public curious about natural, drug-free healing and upper cervical chiropractic care.

The program, entitled From the Neck Down, narrates the stories of six different patients of upper cervical chiropractic care—all who experienced profound healing through the procedures of the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.

“We picked the most dramatic stories that we could to challenge people’s ideas of what kind of healing is possible when drugs and surgery are either not working or are not an option,” said Ward. “These stories are meant to shock you into considering a new possibility of health.”

The stories include patients suffering from severe migraines, seizures, blindness brought on by trauma, and a heart-warming story of a baby that cannot turn his head due to an injury at birth.

The original stories were all written by Dr. Jack Stockwell of Salt Lake City, Utah and published in the student newspaper of Palmer College of Chiropractic. “These stories began as newspaper columns written by my father,” said Joshua Stockwell. “They were published to get future chiropractors at Palmer interested in helping patients by using gentle and precise adjusting procedures at the top of the spine.”

Both Ward and Stockwell say that few chiropractors use upper cervical adjusting procedures, which are gentle, have been found safe, and do not require any rotation or twisting of the head.

“I read these as a student,” said Ward, “and I kept them. I found them so inspiring that I wanted to present them to a non-chiropractic audience. As a colleague in Michigan and the son of the man who wrote these stories, naturally I asked Dr. Josh Stockwell to help me.”

Stockwell notes that he personally knew several of the patients depicted, as they were patients during the time he worked at his father’s clinic.

A limited run of the audio discs are available in the Ann Arbor and Auburn Hills area. To get a copy, anyone interested in listening can contact Ward or Stockwell, or refer to the website for the project found at NeckDownStory.com.

A letter from an upper cervical chiropractic patient

I have spent thousands of dollars at conventional chiropractors, hours at acupuncturists and physical therapists, and even considered back surgery. The surgeon refused to operate on me because he said I had a herniated disc and degenerative arthritis in my lower back.

Carpal tunnel treatment options

If someone continues to have a job with repetitive stress to the hand and wrist, surgery may not be the best option as the conditions that lead to the CTS are still going to be present. Also, the stress that caused CTS may also be causing neck, shoulder, and elbow problems as well, which will not be helped by a carpal tunnel surgery. Continue Reading
