What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Unlike general chiropractic, upper cervical doctors focus only on the top two bones in the neck.

The brainstem passes through the the top two bones in the neck and is responsible for transmitting the nerve impulses from the brain to every part of the body.

If one of the top two bones becomes misaligned, even slightly, it can affect the nerve transmission to any one or multiple parts of the body, resulting in a variety of health conditions.
