Upper Cervical Treatment - Consult a NUCCA or Blair Chiropractor

Upper Cervical Treatment – Consult a Blair Chiropractor

By Dr. Elan Schrier

Most people at some point in their life need a doctor for pain relief.  With so many options out there, more and more people are looking for natural alternatives to medications, injections and surgery. Non-invasive chiropractic pain elimination is one the most frequently used natural healthcare options.


When people search online for a chiropractor they usually search Google for “chiropractors near me”. For example, if someone was looking for a chiropractor in Delray Beach, they might type in the search, Chiropractor Delray Beach. While this is a good start, it’s better to be more detailed in your search. Look for a chiropractor that is reviewed by patients. Through reviews you can find out about what types of symptoms the doctor gets good results with, their personality, ease of appointments, and if people like the office and experience. Looking for the right type of chiropractor is the next step.


There are many different types of chiropractic techniques available, but research has shown that upper cervical chiropractic, also called upper cervical care is one of the most effective. When you go to an upper cervical chiropractor, they will start by reviewing your history to make sure you are a candidate for care. If it is determined that you may have a misalignment in your spine causing the pain, the chiropractor will do a series of physical tests and exams to find out if you have a misalignment. These tests may include a posture analysis, thermal nerve scans, checking your leg balance, and feeling your spine for areas of tension. If any of these tests are positive, x-rays will be recommended. X-rays are necessary and beneficial to be able to see the direction and size of misalignments. Measurements from your x-rays will allow for a very precise, scientific correction of your spine. Without measurements, treating your spine would be more like guesswork, never truly correcting the problem, and requiring more frequent visits. The blair chiropractor technique and NUCCA chiropractic technique are branches of upper cervical care, that specialize in correcting misalignments in your spine. The treatments are gentle, and gets great results.


Upper cervical care is based on research that shows that nerves from every part of your body pass through the upper neck and brain stem. Since the upper neck has so much range of motion, it is the most likely part of the spine to misalign out of place. When this happens the brain stem, spinal cord and nerves become irritated and can cause pain not only in the neck, but anywhere in the body. This is because pain is interpreted in the brain and brain stem, not at the location where the pain is. If there is pressure to the upper neck, someone can feel pain all the way down to the low back, or even the feet for example. Upper cervical chiropractors locate and measure how to correct this problem so that the body has the best ability to heal. The treatments are gentle and safe, and there is no twisting, cracking or popping, which many patients fear.


It is common for upper cervical chiropractors to help patients with neck or back pain, but many patients come in and get relief from a host of symptoms such as headaches, migraines, vertigo, dizziness, Meniere’s Disease, seizures, and more. If you’d like to learn more about the research side and case studies of this treatment it can be found in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, or uppercervicalsubluxation.com .
