Upper Cervical Chiropractic Orange County

What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a speciality within the Chiropractic profession that focuses on the relationship between the head and the neck. Due to the unique nature of the upper cervical spine or the top two bones of the neck when this area is injured it creates stress throughout the body. The upper cervical spine is different from the rest of the spine in shape and function. You can learn more about the nuances of the Upper Cervical spine in a previous post HERE.

How does the upper cervical spine affect your body?

Accidents and injuries can damage the tissues that hold your spine in proper position. Most vulnerable is the upper cervical spine. When this happens your body reflexively tightens parts of your spine to compensate. This tightening leaves your spine in a stressed position. Over time this stressed position can lead to pain and degeneration. When your spine is in a stressed position it is no longer functioning as it was designed which leads to it breaking down.
