Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care
When most people think about traditional chiropractic care, they think of adjustments for back and neck pain. With upper cervical chiropractic, we can naturally restore the health of patients who are suffering from a broad range of health concerns.
How Is It Different From Other Methods?
Unlike other chiropractic methods which adjust several areas of the spine, upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on adjusting just the top two bones in the neck. These bones are called the C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis) vertebrae. These two bones play a vital and special role and are unique from all of the other vertebrae.
Upper cervical chiropractic care is a comfortable spinal adjustment that removes pressure from the nervous system and gently restores the skull, spine and pelvis to their proper position. By removing pressure off the nerves the body can return to its optimally healthy state.
