One of the most common reasons to visit a chiropractor is neck pain. Whether you’ve been ill, suffered a trauma, or are navigating an ongoing medical issue, neck pain can be unbearable.
What makes upper cervical chiropractic care so vital for the treatment of neck pain has a lot to do with where our necks are located. Upper cervical specifically treats the areas around the neck where the brain stem meets the spinal cord, more technically referred to as the C1-C4 vertebrae.
Rather than treating symptoms like pain and muscular tension, upper cervical chiropractic treats the causes for those sensations and tensions. Even the slightest misalignments in those critical areas of the spine can put undo pressure on the brainstem. And as we physically compensate for our feelings and sensations, our bodies get farther out of alignment, only exacerbating the existing problems.
The team at Pinnacle is mindful that our feelings often create these compensations, so we take specific measurements to determine the root causes for the feelings that our patients express. At Pinnacle we fix the cause of your pain, and develop treatment plans around bettering your total alignment.
