The Upper Cervical Spine

The upper cervical spine or cranio-cervical junction (CCJ) is one of the most important and neurologically sensitive regions of the body. It houses and protects the merging of significant neuroanatomy: the brain, brainstem, and the spinal cord.

SPINEThe CCJ is also the most mobile area of the spine without interlocking joints. This makes the area vulnerable to misalignment and injury. Repetitive motion can cause a misalignment to the upper cervical spine. These events can also occur in childhood, with something as common as a traumatic birthing process. Here are some additional or frequent causes of upper cervical misalignment in both children and adults:

  • Blows to the head
  • Excessive computer work
  • Chronic texting with the head flexed down
  • Consistently cradling of a cell phone to one ear
  • Sports injuries
  • Traumatic trampoline landings

Our Unique approach

At Ball Ground Upper Cervical Chiropractic, we utilize Chiropractic Orthospinology procedures, a research-based technique that analyzes the upper cervical spine and its unique influence over postural responses in other areas of the spine. We utilize the latest advancements in imaging and computer software to visualize the upper cervical spine. These images are then carefully analyzed in order to determine the specific nature of your problem. Once the misalignment is measured, a vector force is mathematically calculated and delivered via instrument assistance. The instrument assisted correction allows us to be gentle, precise, and repeatable without unnecessary twisting, popping or cracking.
