FAQs About Chiropractic Care

1) What Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic refers to a group of Chiropractors who have done advanced training in Orthospinology Procedures, Atlas Orthogonal, Blair Upper Cervical, NUCCA, and more to help people achieve results faster and longer than they would have with traditional chiropractic care. In particular, Upper Cervical Chiropractors study the upper portion of the neck, C0-C1-C2, to see how a subluxation/misalignment there can be the reason for your health condition.

2) Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Safe?

Absolutely! Whether your Upper Cervical Chiropractor is using their hands or an instrument, the force used is very gentle. There is no twisting,  popping, or cracking involved.

3) How Long Does It Take To Get Results?

At our office, we see patients for 5-24 visits total on average as a part of their Initial Phase of Care. However this timeframe can vary from person to person.

5) How Do You Become An Upper Cervical Chiropractor?

This question can be answered by looking at the question above. However, to specialize in Upper Cervical, one must take extra courses, seminars, and attend optional conferences to further their knowledge base.

6) Do You Need A Referral From An MD?

No. Patients can call or email their desired Upper Cervical Chiropractor and schedule an appointment immediately.

7) Do Chiropractors Take Insurance?

We are not a participating provider with any insurance panel because we believe that a third party should never dictate a patient's care. We provide our patients with the option of applying for a 0% financing option. We also have multiple self-pay options.

8) What Conditions Do Chiropractors Treat?

The main condition we look for is Atlas Displacement Complex or ADC. ADC is primary condition that may cause: headaches, migraine, neck pain, tinnitus, text-neck, muscle spasms, body aches & pain, balance problems, and more.

Yes! Besides the fact we do not twist or crack the neck, Chiropractic care is absolutely safe for all children. Often times, for small children a sustained-contact  pressure for a few seconds is used, using the pinky finger.

10) What Should You Not Do After Seeing A Chiropractor?

After an Upper Cervical adjustment, we advise that you rest and get a good night's sleep. Avoid strenuous exercise, yoga, or movements that would cause excessive head movement. Walking is allowed. Avoid sleeping on your stomach and/or having your head turned to the side.
