Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

In life, you only get one spine—and we want to help you take care of you and your family’s spine as best as possible.

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 and migraine reduction
  • Help for vertigo
  • Fibromyalgia improvement
  • And more

During an upper cervical adjustment, Dr. Troyer will apply a light pressure to your head and neck area—some patients describe it as a light stretch feeling. We aim to make your adjustment relaxing and soothing—in fact, after the adjustment, you’ll relax in a calm room for up to an hour as your body gets used to the adjustment.

When you visit us for follow up care, you’ll always have your spine checked with our infrared thermography tool, which pinpoints disturbance and stress in the upper neck. If we find that you’re in need of an adjustment, we’ll complete one. If not, there’s no need—and that’s good news—because your body is responding to all of our hard work and self-healing just as it’s supposed to.
