Care We Provide

We believe the body is a miraculous instrument. If given the right care, it can often heal itself without the need to use drugs or surgery, just as when your body closes up a small wound on its own. Upper cervical chiropractic care is gentle, safe, and effective in helping aid the body in healing itself.

We focus on getting to the root cause of the problem, allowing your body to heal, instead of covering up the symptom.

At Clear Chiropractic Spokane, we see people just like you. We care for you no matter what your race, color, creed, sex or handicap. Our clients come to us with a myriad of symptoms from car accidents and injuries, to chronic conditions that seem to be ongoing and hopeless. By providing upper cervical chiropractic care we provide hope and are often able to help get you back to your normal, vibrant and happy self.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Clear Chiropractic specializes in the cranial cervical junction (CCJ), which is the part of your spine that includes the base of your head (occiput) and the first and second vertebrae (atlas and axis).

Upper cervical chiropractic examines the way your nervous system communicates with your body. Due to this areas close proximity to the brain and brain stem, this part of your spine has the most impact on the entire body and how it functions. Biomechanically, the cranial cervical junction doesn’t have any bony interlockings or discs (different from the rest of your spine), it is closest to our Houston control center (the brain and brain stem), and is the most vulnerable area of our spine. Therefore, it deserves a special look.

Due of the inherent makeup of this part of the human body, injuries of force will often see the most impact through your C1 vertebrae at the very top of your spine – the “weak link”. This makes it even more important to take special care of this area of your body.

While upper cervical chiropractic is a form of chiropractic care, patients are often surprised by how different the care is than what they are expecting of chiropractic. Here are a few of the main differences:

  • Upper cervical care does not involve any popping, bending, or twisting.

  • The adjustment is very gentle and specific, which makes it an ideal chiropractic solution for those patients concerned with the typical chiropractic approach.

  • Our goal isn’t to continually treat the problem for the rest of your life. Our goal is to care for you over a series of sessions so you can hold the correction long-term.
