Everything About Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Despite its growing popularity, some people wonder what upper cervical chiropractic care entails.

Here we’ll demystify upper cervical chiropractic care. It’s different from general chiropractic care.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a branch of the general field of chiropractic care specializing in addressing disorders originating from the upper cervical region.

The Main Features of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Focus on the Upper Neck: Of all the vertebrae in your neck, upper cervical chiropractors focus more on the upper cervical spine known as the C1 and C2 ( atlas and axis) vertebrae. 

These neck vertebrae connect the skull to the spinal cord and promote movement of the head. 

Care aims to correct an injury to the neck bones that can cause chronic pain, irritation, and nervous system disorders.

Mild Procedures: Upper cervical chiropractic care is renowned for its gentle, safe, easy, and painless adjustments. Through the use of x-rays and scans, an upper cervical chiropractor can diagnose injuries. To correct misalignments, they deliver gentle, precise adjustments to the affected area of the spine.

Fewer Adjustments: Some people think that once you visit an upper cervical chiropractor, you’ll get an adjustment. Wrong! An upper cervical chiropractor will access and examine you. The test results will determine whether an adjustment will be necessary.

Precise chiropractic adjustments are only administered if there are upper cervical injuries. Adjustments help the body itself.
