WHAT IS KNEE CHEST UPPER CERVICAL SPECIFIC?
Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific (KCUCS) is a precision upper cervical chiropractic procedure that the developer of chiropractic Dr. Bartlett Joshua Palmer researched, developed and then shared with the Chiropractic profession in the spring of 1930 and he called it the HIO principle. HIO meaning "hole-in-one" just like in golf we want to accomplish our objective with one shot. Dr. Palmer discovered after many years of research that the only place a vertebral subluxation can exist is in the upper cervical spine (occipito-atlanto-axial region).
The Knee Chest Upper Cervical spinal correction procedure is the original tried and true method of upper cervical spinal correction. It has been arguably the all-time best and most successful upper cervical spinal correction method since it was researched and developed by Dr. Palmer. The KCUCS teachings and traditions have been handed down through the generations through Dr. Lyle Sherman, Dr. Michael U. Kale, Dr. Robert Kessinger et.al, who have been instrumental in teaching the KCUCS work.
The Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific method developed by Dr. Palmer is commonly referred to as "Knee Chest" for short, in that the patient kneels down onto a specially designed table where they gently turn their head and place a small portion of their chest onto the table. Then a gentle precision vectored force is delivered, that is derived from x-ray analysis to correct the upper cervical spinal misalignment of atlas and axis relative to the opening at the base of the skull called the foramen magnum. Then the patient will comfortably rest for a period of time to allow the correction to seat and hold then a post analysis is performed to verify success of the correction.
