I am Dr. Jay Young, and I help people who suffer from Back Pain, Migraines, Arthritis, Asthma, Carpal Tunnel, Sinus Problems, Allergies, and Whiplash. As a matter of fact, most of my day consists of helping people in your exact, painful situation.

Many people come to our office each day with severe symptoms, and within a short period of time, become pain-free. Of course, this doesn't happen with everyone. Sometimes it takes days, even weeks before the pain is totally gone.

We have an office right here in Easley, South Carolina, and we love hearing or even seeing the tremendous impact our team is making in the lives of so many people in our neighborhood. Some of our patients suffered with pain for a long time. Some caught the problem in the beginning stages (very smart). But all of them, before they found us, were suffering severely. Maybe like you are right now.

The pain was impeding on their quality of life, stopping them from doing activities they enjoyed, and virtually ruining their zest for life. Every day, whether it was a night out with the family, or a day home with the kids—it was wrecked due to the incessant pain in their lower or upper back, neck, or head.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES APPLIED UPPER CERVICAL BIOMECHANICS (AUCB) FROM OTHER UPPER CERVICAL TECHNIQUES?


This is a question I am often asked and the explanations given by Dr. William Amalu, DC reflect my opinion as well:

"From state-of-the-art neurophysiologic imaging and radiographic analysis to adjustive procedures, AUCB is unique when compared to other upper cervical techniques. Its foundation is built upon Dr. Palmer's 15 years of unprecedented research into the effects of upper cervical technique on the global physiology of the human body. Since that time, decades of clinical research and recent advances in diagnostic technology have caused an evolution in Dr. Palmer's procedures to form what we currently know as Applied Upper Cervical Biomechanics.

For over 100 years the foundational premise of our profession has been that health and disease are nervous system dependent; and that the spinal adjustment restores the human nervous system to normal function. AUCB is the only upper cervical technique to maintain that objective neurophysiologic infrared imaging be used on every patient encounter both before and after an adjustment is rendered to substantiate this premise. Without an objective analysis of neurophysiology, it is impossible to determine if neuropathophysiology is present and if the adjustment has effectively restored normal nervous system function to the patient. The IUCCA was the first upper cervical association to incorporate peer-review research based normative data for the detection of abnormal neural function via paraspinal digital infrared imaging. We as a profession insist that we can improve nervous system function, those that practice AUCB can objectively prove it.

To determine the adjustment listing capable of producing maximal neurologic benefits, AUCB uses a complex and unique form of upper cervical radiographic analysis. The entire cervical spine is analyzed arthrokinematically for aberrant function of the upper cervical articulations. This information is used to determine the precise line-of-drive for adjustment procedures to the first, second, or third cervical segments. Adjustments based on this system of analysis have consistently produced full body neurophysiologic benefits on patients, which has been objectively substantiated by both high-resolution camera and paraspinal infrared imaging.

The adjusting procedures used in AUCB are a modified form of that which was used by Dr. B.J. Palmer. Research performed on over 3,000 individual case radiographs has shown that a reliable C1 transverse process contact point can only be achieved in approximately 5% of patients. With this in mind, AUCB uses a specialized adjusting table that allows for a precise contact on the osseous spinal structures in the upper cervical spine. The design of the table also facilitates joint cavitation and full control over all line-of-drive vectors (Modern arthroscopic and cineradiographic research has demonstrated the need for both precise line-of-drive and cavitation to resolve intra-articular adhesions in order to restore normal arthrokinematics). Consequently, lateral C1 transverse process approaches, drop table use, and the inadequate force transference used in many upper cervical techniques has demonstrated significantly lower reliability in resolving objective signs of neuropathophysiology.
