Upper Cervical Chiropractic Services in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, California

Chiropractic care is designed to detect and correct misalignments called subluxations, and everyone can greatly benefit from a chiropractic adjustment. A subluxation is a clue to the chiropractor that your brain isn’t coordinating that part of your body in the best possible way. Still, the only way to identify this issue is through a chiropractic assessment and adjustment.

Our professional chiropractic experts at Acorn Chiropractic Club offer a wide variety of chiropractic services at reasonable and affordable fees for people in Santa Rosa and Petaluma, California, and we know that you will feel noticeable positive differences in various aspects of your life. These services include chiropractic adjustments, family chiropractic care, pediatric chiropractic, prenatal chiropractic, infant chiropractic, and upper cervical chiropractic. We will help correct any misalignments in your spine, restore proper function to the nervous system, and increase the potential for optimal health and well-being.  

What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

In the spine, the most neurologically important region is the upper neck (upper cervical spine) because it is responsible for much of the communication between the spine and the brain. Our upper cervical chiropractic care at the Acorn Chiropractic Club focuses on the top two bones in the neck (the C1 vertebra or Atlas and the C2 vertebra or Axis). 

The brainstem passes through these bones and is responsible for transmitting the nerve impulses from the brain to every part of the body. If one of the top two bones becomes misaligned, even slightly, it can affect nerve transmission to multiple parts of the body, causing a decrease in communication between brain and body.

An upper cervical correction is gentle with no twisting or popping of your neck. The correction is applied using a precise and controlled touch that allows the head, neck, and spine to return to their proper positions, which will restore balance to the body and remove interference to the nervous system. 

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Benefits

The upper cervical region (upper neck) is the most important area of your spine. Dysfunction in this area has a negative impact on your entire nervous system, including your brainstem, which houses many of your body’s vital functions. Because of this, upper cervical chiropractic adjustments can have a huge impact on your overall health and wellbeing.

While we cannot predict what each individual’s specific benefits will be, we know that everyone is better off with a properly functioning nervous system. People often report a wide range of benefits, including, but not limited to:

  • Greater sense of wellbeing
  • Improved focus/clarity (less cloudiness in thought)
  • Better sleep
  • Enhanced immune system function (getting sick less often or less severe)
  • Much more…

The only way to know the specific benefits that you will experience is to give upper cervical chiropractic care a try. Schedule an appointment to get started!

Does Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Work? How Does It Work?

Chiropractic care works because it is tailored to fit your body’s unique circumstances, and our experienced chiropractors will develop a customized plan of care to meet your needs. For the upper cervical region of the spine, we examine how your body functions, keeping in mind that your spine is unique. We can then identify the best way to correct misalignments using the latest techniques and most advanced approaches.

An upper cervical correction is gentle with no twisting or popping of your neck. The correction is applied using a precise and controlled touch that allows the head, neck, and spine to return to their proper positions, which will restore balance to the body and remove the interference. 

Signs and Symptoms You Should Sign Up for Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Misalignment in the cervical area can have serious negative effects on the whole nervous system and the entire spinal column, so you may not even realize that you require an adjustment in the upper cervical region. That is why you must have a professional chiropractor assess your spine and identify whether upper cervical chiropractic care is right for you.
