Upper Cervical Care is an effective and alternative option to drugs and surgery for a wide variety of symptoms. Many conditions and symptoms respond well to upper cervical care and while we don’t know exactly how you or your condition will respond, it is important to note that it is not the goal of the upper cervical doctor to directly “treat” any symptom or condition. Instead, the goal of the upper cervical chiropractor is to locate, analyze and correct a spinal misalignment at the level of the brain stem that may be interfering with the central nervous systems ability to function and communicate with the brain and the body effectively. The nervous system controls and regulates every cell, tissue and organ in the body. We rely on the fact that the body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism provided the removal of neural interference, especially at the vital area of the brainstem and craniocervical junction (upper neck).
