A Specialized Form of Chiropractic Care To Address Neck Pain
Have you ever heard of upper cervical chiropractic care? Upper cervical chiropractic care is a specialized form of chiropractic that addresses neck misalignment's using a precision method to gently correct spinal misalignment that occurs in the upper neck. Upper cervical care is a low force method used to correct Atlas (C1 vertebra) and Axis (C2 vertebra) misalignment naturally.
Neck pain and the accompanying symptoms often begin after an atlas misalignment takes place. Atlas misalignment most commonly occurs due to an accident or injury such as a car accident, as lip or fall, a sports injury or long hours of poor posture such as the repetitive motion of checking a smartphone dozens of times per day. Correcting atlas misalignment is a natural way to restore balance to the body.
