Common Questions

After graduating from Chiropractic college, Upper Cervical doctors continue post-graduate training in Upper Cervical care. The post-graduate training includes advanced studies in the anatomy, neurology, biomechanics, radiology, instrumentation and corrective procedures specific to the upper cervical spine. An Upper Cervical doctor focuses on the top two bones in the neck, Atlas & Axis. These two bones surround our nervous system that controls and functions every part of the body.

A Upper Cervical adjustment is a light and specific adjustment. There is NO twisting or pulling during the adjustment. It is a specific adjustment that is done after receiving a full examination and X-rays to determine where the misalignment is located.

A subluxation is a bone in the top of the neck that is out of alignment. This causes nerve pressure and reduces the function of the brain and body to communicate properly. The nervous system controls and functions the whole body. Removing this interference allows the body the function at its optimal level.

Only 15% of the nerves in the body transmit sensory pain. The other 85% of the nerves are controlling every other function in the body. This is why it is so important to have your nervous system checked with an Upper Cervical doctor.
