Common Symptoms

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a whole body approach to health. Often symptoms are linked to one another as part of a larger overall health picture.

Clients often find relief from health frustrations when other treatments or medications were unable to help.

Our services are also beneficial as a complimentary form of care for those patients who have had surgery, are going through physical therapy, or are receiving additional care. We are a great addition to your current health care team.

We can often help people with the following symptoms:


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.

While we don’t treat specific medical conditions, 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.
