When thinking of chiropractic, most people relate it to neck pain, upper back pain, and lower back pain. These are some of the most common conditions we see at the Upper Cervical Spine Center, although we help those with many other conditions, too. Spinal pain happens because the bones in your spine, or vertebrae, are out of alignment, causing nerves to be pinched. The body can correct these misalignments on its own, but only if the upper cervical spine is aligned. The upper cervical spine is the most mobile and complex joint in the body, making it impossible for it to correct on its own. However, when an Upper Cervical chiropractor helps to realign this area, the rest of the spine can then take care of itself. When this happens, the pinched nerves are released, allowing the spinal pain to go away.
