Upper Cervical Care

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a unique health care specialty that utilizes two diagnostic tools - Paraspinal Digital Infrared Imaging and Upper Cervical Radiography - to analyze injuries to the upper cervical spine. The use of this innovative technology has increased the predictability of results as well as the number of health problems that respond to this specific form of chiropractic care. While many patients recall specific traumas such as head injuries, auto accidents or falls, which could have injured their cervical spines, some do not. An evaluation is necessary in each individual's case to assess whether an upper cervical injury is present and whether benefit from upper cervical care can be achieved.
