The alignment of the spine is the heart of chiropractic care. Understanding your overall spinal health can be determined by examining the cervical
curve. The cervical curve consists of the first seven vertebrae in your spine, starting from the base of your skull at the C1 (atlas) vertebra and
ending at your thoracic spine.
How many times have you been told to sit up straight? It turns out Mom was right; sitting up straight is good advice indeed. Hunching your shoulders

cervical spine. Get in the loop about why the body has—and needs—this important curve.
A lot of people think bad posture is mostly how you look—and that’s not unreasonable. It’s noticeable, right?
