At Atlas Chiropractic, we specialize in a highly advanced, extremely precise chiropractic technique called upper cervical chiropractic care and adjustments. As experienced upper cervical chiropractors, we have extensive expertise in the intricacies of this specialized approach.

Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on gentle realignment of the top bone in the neck called the atlas. The atlas is uniquely important, as it directly supports the head and houses the brainstem. When it shifts out of position, it can adversely affect the rest of the spine and impede critical messaging between the brain and body.

Realigning the upper neck restores proper positioning, movement, and communication at the foundation of the spine and nervous system. This allows the brain and central nervous system to function optimally, enhancing health and performance.

Why Does the Upper Neck Matter So Much?

The upper cervical spine consists of the atlas and axis bones and is vital for whole-body function and coordination. This is because the brainstem passes through the upper neck, carrying signals between the brain and the rest of the nervous system.

When the weight-bearing atlas bone becomes misaligned from the head, it can stress and irritate the brainstem. This impedes neurological communication, balance, and health throughout the body. Focusing the chiropractic adjustment specifically on the upper cervical spine realigns the foundation where vital communication begins.

The Advanced Precision of Upper Cervical Adjustments

At Atlas Chiropractic, we utilize advanced technology and skill to deliver the most precise upper cervical care. Using specialized imaging and scans, we uncover the specific misalignments affecting the atlas and nervous system function.

We then use exacting instruments to gently realign and rebalance the upper neck. This does not involve any twisting, popping, or cracking. Our upper cervical correction is a pain-free, non-invasive procedure.

The adjustment is precise, measured, and extremely accurate. We restore balance and movement to the cervical spine’s foundation so the brain and nervous system can function naturally. Ongoing care helps the upper neck remain stable for long-lasting wellness.
