Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

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.

How Does it Improve Sports 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.

By ensuring that your spine is aligned through upper cervical chiropractic, you can know that you are not suffering from reduced performance due to one or more of your bones or muscles carrying more than their fair share of weight or function within your body.  Chiropractors know that posture affects every function of your body.  Bad posture and poor spinal alignment will hurt every other body function.  Spinal pathologies can degrade your joints, reflexes and nerve fibers.  Have a strong posture and spinal alignment will result in not only improved sports performance, but also prevent you from being injured by any sports impacts.
