What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care focuses on the top two bones in your neck, Atlas (C1) and Axis (C2). These bones surround your brainstem, which has an intimate relationship with the brain. This area, then, acts as the “power switch” of your body because of its ability to restore and preserve health.
These two bones, however, are the most mobile segment of the spine, and they are most vulnerable to injuries caused by car accidents, sports, concussions, physical or emotional stress, birth trauma, numbness in the arms and hands, etc. Any irritation or pressure caused by such injuries can move the bones in improper directions, causing more stress to your body. This is because any distress to the central nervous system can disrupt the efficient flow of brain messages to the body. Dr. Yoon uses specific adjustments to restore proper brainstem function and reestablish communication between your brain and body.
