Why Upper Cervical Health Centers?

There are a number of specialties within chiropractic just as there are in medicine. We are commonly referred to as Upper Cervical Chiropractors because our area of expertise is actually the upper neck and most importantly, the brain stem. We were the first chiropractors in the entire state and one of only 40 chiropractors in the country to utilize 3D imaging in our office. This state-of-art imaging is the biggest advancement within our profession since we started practice in 1994. It allows us to view every precise detail of your spine to help us determine exactly what needs to be corrected in order to help you heal. Our gentle correction is very comfortable and does not use traditional manipulation procedures that "pop" or "twist" your spine. While we might specialize in the Upper Cervical spine, our procedure actually has a powerful effect on the full spine and is helpful with most low back complaints. 

Common Conditions in our Glen Carbon Office

Some of the most common conditions Dr. Thad and Nikki help with in their office include: arthritis, concussions, digestive disorders, disc problems, fibromyalgia, headaches, low back pain, migraines, multiple sclerosis, neuropathy, neck pain, parkinson's, scoliosis, TMJ, trigeminal neuralgia, vertigo and whiplash to name a few. It sounds like a "cure all" but in reality, it isn't a treatment for any one condition. Upper Cervical Care simply restores proper "Brain to Body Communication" which enables your body to heal itself. The reality is that most patients come in with one concern, but it typically ends up helping with 3 or 4 different health issues they have been dealing with for years. 

Unsure if Chiropractic Care is for You?

Some of the most common misconceptions about chiropractic are that all chiropractic procedures are the same and they aren't! Many general chiropractic offices will manipulate multiple levels of the spine on every visit. In Upper Cervical Care, we strive to locate and correct the misalignment allowing the body to heal. This is so critical to our success that we have each patient lay down and "rest" after a correction to allow the adjustment to "set-up and hold". If you've tried chiropractic in the past and didn't get the results you expected, give Upper Cervical Care a chance to see if you would benefit from this specialized procedure. 

Ultimately, if you've been suffering with an injury or illness and you are looking for a safe, natural way to correct the cause and not simply cover up the symptoms, consider Upper Cervical Health Centers!
