Expert Upper Cervical Chiropractic Treatment
Upper cervical chiropractic care is a unique form of chiropractic treatment that focuses on the alignment of the upper neck vertebrae, also known as the upper cervical spine. The goal of this treatment is to restore proper alignment and function to the upper cervical spine, which can help alleviate a range of health issues throughout the body.
A critical portion of the nervous system either passes through or originates at the brainstem at the base of the skull. This is arguably the most neurologically important area of the body, and it is vulnerable to misalignment and injury to the upper cervical spine. The upper cervical spine plays a role in protecting the juncture of the brainstem and spinal cord, which controls many vital functions of the nervous system.
Misalignments in the upper cervical spine can interfere with various functions including causing postural distortion such as: one leg appearing longer than the other; one hip higher when standing; slight twisting of the body; leaning to one side; unbalanced muscles; or abnormal movement. In time, the gradual wear and tear breaks down the spine, leading to degenerative conditions and chronic pain. Chiropractors find the misalignment, correct it, and bring the body back into balance.
Dr. Kirk Eriksen believes in the power of the body to heal itself in most instances. To determine if you are a candidate for Chiropractic care, Dr. Eriksen will perform a thorough evaluation and discuss your medical history to determine if this treatment is appropriate for your specific needs.
We use advanced X-ray technology to get a precise image of the craniovertebral junction to use in conjunction with computer software prior to adjustment. This ensures your adjustment is uniquely suited to your misalignment. During an upper cervical chiropractic treatment, the chiropractor uses gentle, precise adjustments to correct misalignments in the upper cervical spine.

Dr. Kirk Eriksen uses a specific technique called Orthospinology that does not involve twisting or cracking of the neck. Dr. Eriksen is one of only a few chiropractors in the entire world who has the ability to adjust the upper cervical spine using three separate methods: by hand, hand-held instrument, and table-mounted instrument adjusting.
In addition to upper cervical care, Dr. Eriksen may use the drop table, flexion distraction and/or instrument adjusting to other parts of the spine as necessary, but he does not use twisting, popping and cracking methods, but he is not disparaging these other types of chiropractic adjustments/manipulations.
We like to say that, “Chiropractic care adds Life to Years and Years to Life!” In addition to feeling better, once the spine is corrected, it becomes stronger and more stabilized in its normal position. The recovery aspect and care are key to achieving long-term wellness. When you’re feeling better, everything’s better! Overall, upper cervical chiropractic care is a gentle and non-invasive approach to addressing misalignments in the upper cervical spine and may be a valuable treatment option for many individuals experiencing a range of health issues.
Chiropractic results may vary, but our qualified physicians are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and will refer you to other healthcare professionals when deemed necessary.
