Wilmington, NC Upper Cervical Spine Center Helps Patients Suffering from a
Variety of Health Conditions.
Your path to health in Wilmington starts here. With Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care, your body can finally get the relief it deserves by getting to the CAUSE of your ailments. Our Wilmington based chiropractors specialize in detecting and correcting problems in the upper cervical spine – the area surrounding your brainstem.
Why is the brainstem so important? Every nerve in the body originates in this area of your nervous system. Your nervous system controls every muscle, organ, and gland in your body. Nothing works without your nervous system! When there is a problem in your body, we can almost always lead it back to the brainstem and upper cervical spine.
This area of your spine consists of two bones – the atlas and axis. It is the most mobile joint in your entire body, allowing your head to move in all directions. Due to this mobility, it is an area of weakness in the spine. When injuries occur, like a car accident, sports injury, slip and fall, or even sitting at a desk all day, the upper cervical spine can misalign. The result is pressure on the brainstem, and your body not functioning correctly.
When the general population thinks about chiropractic, they typically think of neck and back pain. Although we take care of many patients with pain, Upper Cervical chiropractic is so much more! Our chiropractors serve babies suffering from colic and ear infections, kids with ADHD and scoliosis, adults with fibromyalgia and migraines, and the elderly with high blood pressure and depression. These are just a handful of the conditions we see in our office.
Our chiropractors love helping others achieve relief, but CHANGING LIVES is what makes our profession the best in the world. Just ask any one of the doctors in the office – they absolutely LOVE what they do! How does Upper Cervical Chiropractic help such a variety of people with so many different problems? Remember, it all has to do with pressure on the brainstem, the most vital part of your body. This pressure occurs when the upper cervical spine is misaligned. Since the body cannot correct this area of your spine itself, the misalignment can linger for years, even decades. This interferes with the communication between your brain and body, leading to problems in your muscles and/or organs. Basically, when there is pressure on your brainstem, your brain cannot send the proper messages to allow your body to function and heal. This is the CAUSE of your condition!
At the Upper Cervical Spine Center, our chiropractors are highly trained to find the cause of your problem. To start, we will listen and do our best to understand what you are going through. It is so important that you are heard, and not just pushed away or given a quick diagnosis. If it sounds like an upper cervical problem, our doctors will perform a specialized neurological exam to determine if there are any spinal problems and pressure on the brainstem using state-of-the-art technology. If pressure is detected, digital X-rays will be taken to determine exactly how the upper cervical spine is misaligned. Correcting the misalignment is very easy on the patient – no twisting, turning, or jerking involved. The goal is to get your body to hold the correction, so your body starts to heal on its own.
Our chiropractors strive to help your body correct itself in as few visits as possible, meaning you are healing and functioning at your best. If you want to finally get to the bottom of your health condition, schedule your FREE consultation now!
