Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

At Upper Cervical Health Centers, we believe that chiropractic care is a simple, natural way to keep your nervous system free of interference so that your body can self-heal exactly as it was designed to. While most people associate twisting backs and cracking during an adjustment, we do things differently here and are proud to be entirely upper cervical based.

Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments are designed to realign the top bones of your spine, located at the base of the neck. Proper alignment in these bones are crucial to the health and wellness of your body, as they’re more susceptible to improper movement and misalignment.

More so, they connect your spine to the brain stem, and if nerves are under pressure or stress in that area, in can have lasting effects throughout the body.

We have patients that visit us from near and far, venturing hundreds of miles to experience the benefits of upper cervical care, which can include:

  • Better sleep

  • Pain reduction

  • Headache & migraine reduction

  • Help for vertigo

  • Fibromyalgia improvement

  • And more

Specific Upper Cervical Corrective Chiropractic Care is not for everyone. With limited availability, our doctor has very specific requirements in order to be accepted as a patient in our office. What this means to you is you're going to want to Call to Schedule Your Consultation to see if you qualify!  

Specific Corrective Chiropractic Care is for you if:​

  • You are sick and tired of having to rely on medications.

  • You value your quality of life and your relationships.

  • Your desire is to fix your problem, not simply get temporary relief.

Specific Corrective Chiropractic Care is NOT for you if:

  • You are in search of a quick fix that does not get to the root cause of the problem.

  • You are okay with masking the pain of symptoms with medications.

  • You are looking for an injection or surgery to magically “fix” your problem.

Chiropractic care is about much more than symptom relief. Chiropractors provide their patients with vital, preventative, and non-invasive health care through regular checks and adjustments. At the center of that specialized and trained care is an expert understanding of the science of vertebral subluxation.
 
A vertebral subluxation occurs when one or more vertebrae in the spine become misaligned, compressing spinal nerves and disturbing optimal nerve function. Chiropractic’s primary focus involves locating, analyzing and correcting these misalignments.

Vertebral Subluxation in the History of Chiropractic

The term “subluxation” has a long history in the healing practices, dating back to the time of Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician regarded as the “Father of Medicine.” The word refers to a dislocation or displacement and has been integral to chiropractic education since the very beginning. Chiropractic’s founder, D.D. Palmer, reasoned that even a slight misaligned vertebra could cause pressure on the spinal cord or nerves.

“Chiropractors have found in every disease that is supposed to be contagious, a cause in the spine,” wrote B.J. Palmer, the famous developer of chiropractic, in 1909. “In the spinal column, we will find a subluxation that corresponds to every type of disease.”
 
As chiropractic science is concerned with preserving and restoring health, it focuses particular attention on subluxations of the tiny bones of the spine. A vertebral subluxation happens when one or more of bones of the spine are out of position and compress spinal nerves. These nerves are the primary communication link between the body to the brain. Pressure on these nerves interferes with the communication between the body and the brain, which may cause organs, tissues, and cells not to function properly. Chiropractic identifies, analyzes and helps correct these disturbances to restore the body’s natural balance and the potential for self-healing.

How a Subluxation Interferes with Optimal Health

A subluxation interrupts the proper operation of the body’s nerve system, compromising the maintenance of optimal health. The human body consists of several interrelated systems, functioning with an innate intelligence to adapt to changes in our internal environment and the world around us. Every moment, impulses are delivered between the brain and the body’s 100 trillion cells to coordinate every movement and function. Impulses send this intricate information through the nerve connections in our spine. When vertebrae become subluxated because of any number of factors, interference results in the body’s communication process, negatively affecting functions and performance.

Short-term and regular chiropractic care have a number of benefits including:

  • spinal and extremity pain relief

  • headache relief

  • increased mobility and range of motion

  • decreased stiffness and muscular spasms

  • arthritic joint pain relief

  • increased joint health

  • increased performance and energy

  • increased sense of well-being and relaxation

  • increased balance and coordination

  • reduced degeneration and risk of injury

  • enhanced tissue healing

  • decreased tissue inflammation
