How is Upper Cervical Care Different?

After graduating from general chiropractic college, Upper Cervical doctors continue post-graduate training in upper cervical care. This includes advanced studies in anatomy, neurology, biomechanics, radiology, instrumentation, and corrective procedures specific to the upper cervical spine.

Because the field requires such rigorous training, there are only ~900 doctors in the world certified to provide upper cervical care.

Upper Cervical is different from traditional medicine, physical therapy, and general chiropractic. Upper cervical doctors use precise and objective spinographs or X-rays of the head and neck. Measurements are taken, and an analysis is made to determine exactly how the top vertebrae are misaligned and what the appropriate course of action needs to be.

Scientific & Specific

Traditional medicine prescribes drugs or performs surgeries. Physical therapy uses a wide array of modalities, stretching and strengthening. General chiropractic utilises a variety of manipulations to increase the range of motion within the spine. Make no mistake: these healing arts help millions of people each year!

Nevertheless, many people are turning to upper cervical care if the customary approaches aren’t working as we hope.

Upper Cervical care uses 80 years of clinical research, precision X-rays, mathematical measurements, spinal analysis and pre/post objective instrumentation to determine how to adjust misalignments of the upper neck … and to know when we’ve been able to do so.

The intent of upper cervical care is not to make a correction every visit but rather to make a correction and have it hold for an extended period of time, thus allowing the body to heal itself. We emphasize prevention rather than the treatment of disease.
