Upper Cervical Chiropractors are specially trained to locate upper neck misalignments that are impacting the central nervous system. Because the skull neck junction is biomechanically unstable, it is susceptible to injury. Whiplash and sports injuries can cause the top vertebrae in the neck to dislodge and lockout of its normal position.

Once locked it impacts the brainstem and central nervous system which over time leads to chronic health problems. The goal of the upper cervical doctor is to determine whether you have an upper neck misalignment. Once located, precise digital x-rays are taken. This allows the doctor to see what direction the vertebrae has misaligned, so he/she can then make a precise spinal correction.

There is no twisting pulling or cracking of the neck. Once the segment is repositioned, the patient is monitored over time to ensure the correction is “holding”. As the correction “holds” in its normal position the soft tissue, ligaments, and muscles rebalance and heal.

But most importantly the central nervous system can function better which increases the body’s own healing potential. If you or a loved one suffers from fibromyalgia or any other chronic health problems, it would make sense to have your upper cervical spine examined for this problem.
