Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3)

QSM3Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3) is a new approach in chiropractic and upper cervical care.  It came about as a result of re-examining the founding ideas of NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association) and getting different answers to those foundational ideas.  The focus of QSM3 is to access and release whole body tension patterns that hold the body is a misaligned, stressed, and compressed stated to create/enhance balance, alignment, decreased muscle tension, improved movement, and healing.  This most often helps relax stressed joints and tissues which cause pain and dysfunction in the body.

It is called quantum spinal mechanics for a number of reasons.  Quantum refers to the nature of the touch and process.  There is little to no force in the adjustment most often described as light touches or brushes near the top of the neck – we are contacting and releasing tension patterns or stuck energy not bones or vertebrae.  Spinal mechanics refers to our continuing applied approach to understanding how the body gets misaligned (jammed, twisted, stuck & compressed) and how to release it.  The number three refers to our three dimensional point of view in looking at the whole body.  It is called upper cervical care since doctors touch around the upper neck to perform the adjustment.

QSM3 doctors touch the upper neck for a very specific reason – the shape of the upper neck bones allows the skull to be used as a steering wheel.  We can then direct energy to access and release pathways in the body.

When a person has a nerve problem – whether felt (symptomatic) or not – a person has a misligned body which shows up in a bunch of ways:  
uneven/rotated hips,
uneven/rotated shoulders,
neck leaning,
head tilting,
uneven weight on the feet,
uneven muscle tension
stress on many parts of the body.

The experience of being adjusted is very unique because of the light touch  -- sometimes people can feel the body release and many people feel nothing during the adjustment. 
The most common result is an up and open feeling in  the body.  Every person’s is different and many report feeling looser, lighter, clearer, and taller.  You can think of this as experiencing “getting off your nerves.”  Every person’s body is its own jigaw puzzle or rubick’s cube and our goal is optimally release the body into a more balanced place.

Care is a process since the vast majority of people have been misaligned for years before seeking help.

Our goal is to go through a care process to release and stabilize the body for long term benefit. QSM3 Website →
