Care We Provide

At Clear Chiropractic, we believe the body is a miraculous instrument. If given the right care, it can often heal itself without need for drugs or surgery. Upper cervical chiropractic care is gentle, safe and effective treatment in aiding the body to heal itself.

 

Our services are also beneficial as a complimentary form of care. For those who have had surgery or are going through physical therapy, we are a positive addition to your current health care team. At Clear Chiropractic, 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 complications from car accidents / injuries to ongoing chronic conditions that seem hopeless. With upper cervical chiropractic care, you can regain hope and get back to your normal, vibrant and happy self.

 

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a whole body approach to health. Symptoms are often linked to one another as part of a larger picture. Instead of symptom management (the covering up of symptoms), we focus on the bigger picture of what needs to be healed— the root cause of the symptom(s). Clients often find relief from health frustrations when other treatments or medications were unable to help. Common examples include: 

Headaches & Migraines:

Headaches are a common medical condition, which can range from mild to a debilitating migraine. Many clients have experienced relief from their headaches by under care. There may be a cervico-genic component to your headaches and we can help.

Whiplash & Auto Injuries:

When you’re in an accident, your neck has a high chance of being stretched beyond its natural range of motion, which can cause whiplash. Whiplash can also happen skiing, snowboarding, riding ATVs, and/or slipping on ice or falling down stairs.  Although the damage may not be immediate, it can be chronic over time. We aim to restore mobility, relieve pain and prevent long-term consequences from auto injuries or whiplash.

Sports Injuries & Concussions:

Being injured or getting hit in the head can be dangerous for not only the spine, but also the brain. Since we specialize in this area and take extra precautions our gentle care can help aid in faster recovery time, getting you back in the game or functioning normally in life, work and school. Football, boxing, motorcycle accidents, hockey, and soccer area a few common sources of concussions.

Facial (Tooth & Jaw & Ear), Neck, & Back Pain:

Many people who have experienced some sort of injury suffer from neck, back, or even facial pain. Even those who have lower back pain can benefit from our gentle and non-invasive upper cervical chiropractic approach. Trigeminal neuralgia, vertigo, ear pain, meniere’s disease are a few reasons people seek upper cervical health care.

Sleep:

People, from infants to the elderly, often have difficulties sleeping. Many times, misalignment can cause disruptions in sleep – whether from snoring, improper breathing, or other triggers. By correcting the problem areas within the spine, upper cervical chiropractic can assist your body to get its best nights sleep. After a period of care many clients report improved sleep!

Sciatica:

Pain from the lower back and into the legs is sometimes a sign of sciatica. We can often assist patients by correcting misalignments relating to the source of the pain, providing long term healing. Often times other treatments are focused in the area of pain and many times the source of the problem is higher up in the kinetic chain, we can help determine the cause.

Exercise Injuries:

While exercise is typically good for you, it can sometimes cause unintended injury to the body. Upper cervical chiropractic can be used as a preventative or corrective measure for muscle or tissue strain, tenderness or other aches and pains which allows you to get the most out of your workout and maximize your competitive edge.

Digestion:

When you think of digestive issues, you may not think of chiropractic care to assist with treatment. However, since upper cervical chiropractic care works with the nervous system and the body’s overall function, it has been able to help many patients with their various digestive problems, healing from the inside out.

Shoulder Pain, Tingling, Numbness and Weakness into Arms & Hands:

The shoulder relies heavily on the spine to function correctly. If your body has nerve irritation in the neck, you may experience pain in your shoulders, arms and hands. Upper cervical chiropractic care can identify the source of the problem and work to correct it in a safe and effective way.

Anxiety & Depression:

While those who suffer from anxiety and depression deal with symptoms throughout their life, a variety of treatment options exist to help cope. Upper cervical chiropractic care has been found to be effective in helping patients with many aspects of anxiety and depression, allowing them to live a calmer and happier life.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

While upper cervical is a form of chiropractic, patients are often surprised by how different their care is at CLEAR than what they originally expected.

Here are a few of the main differences:

Clear Chiropractic specializes in the craniocervical 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).

Due to 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.” We specialize in the extra care required to keep the CCJ aligned and fully functional. 

Upper cervical chiropractic examines the way your nervous system communicates with your body. Due to this area’s close proximity to the brain and brain stem, it has the most impact on full body function. Biomechanically, the craniocervical junction does not have any bony interlockings or discs (different from the rest of your spine), and is the closest alignment to our “Houston Control Center” (the brain and brain stem). The implications of a misalignment at this delicate and vulnerable area of the spine can be far reaching. For example, upper cervical chiropractic has successfully helped patients who suffer from other diagnosed conditions such as multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s, breast cancer, scoliosis, autoimmune disorders and more. We do not treat specific medical conditions; we bring the body back into a natural state of neurological balance where healing and thriving can begin. 

  • 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.
