Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

The upper cervical spine is the topmost portion of the spine that supports the weight of the skull and provides a wide range of motion. The upper cervical spine is also known as the craniocervical junction and is made up of the base of the skull (occipital), first cervical segment(atlas), and second cervical segment (axis).

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care focuses on correcting misalignments in the upper neck region of your spine — called subluxations. Upper cervical manipulation adjusts the upper spine, affecting the whole body and allowing the central nervous system to communicate properly with the rest of your body.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Works

Our chiropractor will ask about your medical history, condition, symptoms, and even your family’s medical history. Then perform physical examinations and x-rays to thoroughly assess your condition to create a personalized plan for you. During the procedure, chiropractors are likely to explore your maximum range of motion before beginning the adjustment and immediately stop if it triggers any pain. The chiropractor may thrust their hands down onto the targeted area to make adjustments. It is a very delicate technique with precise movements to correct upper cervical misalignments, unlike the general chiropractor technique. For proper brain stem functioning, it is crucial to have a healthy alignment in the upper neck region of your spine. If the upper cervical alignment is improper, it can compress the brain stem and create many problems, such as signals and messages from the brain to the body can be affected.
