Only 60 people in the world hold a unique certification in the chiropractic realm and Dr. Jane Brewer, owner of Precision Chiropractic in Northern Colorado, is now one of them. This certification is the Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP), which was designed for upper cervical Doctors of Chiropractic.
This rare certification provides an even more prestigious focus to Dr. Jane’s practice, as she prides herself on discovering where the source of her patients’ pain comes from rather than covering it up with a temporary solution. Some view a crack in the wall and throw putty in it; she sees the same crack and examines the foundation first before looking for any solutions. But, the foundation of the spine is not located at the bottom; it is at the very top. It is called the upper cervical spine, or the craniocervical junction.
Misalignments at the junction of the head and neck (think: fender benders, slips on icy sidewalks, a career at a desk, bicycle crashes, etc.) can cause a laundry list of secondary conditions. Upper cervical chiropractors like Dr. Jane focus on correcting these misalignments, which can cause disruptions in central nervous system function. Rather than a traditional high-velocity manipulation, an upper cervical adjustment is applied with a highly-specialized instrument using a precise, controlled, and gentle touch. This allows the head, neck, and spine to return to their proper positions, restoring the body’s natural ability to adapt to stress, heal, and function optimally. When asked why she decided to focus on this area of practice, Dr. Jane said, “Once you know better, you do better. There aren’t many of us who do what I do, but when you discover a truth that can be part of the solution to pain and suffering, you cannot ignore that. That is why I focus on the upper cervical spine.”
Acquiring the DCCJP certification means that Dr. Jane has the most advanced training available when it comes to upper cervical chiropractic care. Like most chiropractors, her patients come to her with not only neck or back pain, but with whiplash injury, post-concussion syndrome, numbness, migraines, vertigo, TMJ disorders, and much more. This new certification provides Dr. Jane with a new lens through which to see and treat misalignments, allowing her to become a detective with her patients and uncover the underlying issues in order to adjust, mend, and solve as much as she can.
Her remarkable mission speaks volumes of hope into the lives of her patients and this new DCCJP certification means that Dr. Jane can be even more of an asset to patients across Northern Colorado who are striving to find real, long-lasting solutions. Johnstown, CO’s Precision Chiropractic is in a league of its own with its active and proactive treatment mission.
