Upper cervical chiropractic is a specialty of chiropractic that has been around since the 1930’s and shown proven success in treating a great many disorders and symptoms. It focuses specifically on the upper spine and neck. Upper cervical chiropractic practitioners will focus on balancing the heavy head over the spinal column so that the patient experiences full alignment with the rest of posture. The science of upper cervical chiropractic shows that correct alignment, nerve function and posture will support athletic performance.
There is a vast amount of scientific research as well as anecdotal evidence to support the positive effects of chiropractic treatment and improved sports performance. Some of the best known athletes in history have sought chiropractic care – including Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Joe Montana and Sugar Ray Leonard. In fact, 100% of the NFL teams actually use chiropractors in an official capacity for treatment or evaluation to help prevent injuries as well as increase their overall performance potential.
