Why Upper Cervical

At Crowfoot Chiropractic we screen every new patient on their first visit to find misalignments in the spine that may be leading to cause of their symptoms. By keeping this area of the spine clear of misalignment the brain can communicate with the body at 100% and the body can communicate with the brain. The reason why some people specifically ask for upper cervical care is because a friend or family member told them to get checked.



Remember if you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles, knees or hip joints ..the direct cause may be the function of your feet or ill-fitting shoes. If your discomfort persists beyond a few weeks, please contact your health care practitioner, your orthotics may simply need a minor adjustment. Women have four times as many foot problems as men because they have a long history of wearing high heels and/or pointy toe shoes.


Blair Upper Cervical

After many years of research and study of all the techniques that were developing at the time, Dr. B.J. Palmer the developer of chiropractic realized that the only place a person could truly have interference to the nervous system was at the level of the base of the skull; and the atlas and axis vertebrae.



The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, or in the palms of your hand, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.


What is Upper Cervical

The priority of our treatments is to ensure that your spine’s alignment is in no way inhibiting the central nervous system’s role in maintaining your health. Composed of the brain, spinal cord and nerves, your nervous system organizes and executes every aspect of life in your body. Your brainstem is where the messages for heart, lung, digestive, immune, and other body functions.
