Upper Cervical Chiropractic FAQ


Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on restoring proper alignment and movement to your upper cervical spine and promoting the natural healing ability of your body. 

 Dr. Andrea Jordheim, your upper cervical chiropractor in Grand Junction, understands that you want the best in care and the opportunity for optimal well-being. Upper cervical chiropractic care does just that.

Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Different From Regular Chiropractic Care?

Upper cervical chiropractic care is an effective method of helping restore proper spinal alignment, optimal sympathetic nervous system function, and relieves pain. Dr. Andrea, a specialist in the field of upper cervical chiropractic care, knows that the unique biomechanics of the upper region of the neck makes it more susceptible to injury from trauma, accidents, and normal wear and tear.

 The American Chiropractic Association explains that the neck supports the full weight of the head. While the neck features good flexibility, it is this flexibility that makes it susceptible to conditions potentially affecting the entire central nervous system.

 The field of upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on the assessment and restoration of your central nervous system and is a specialty within the chiropractic field. Your upper cervical chiropractor here in Grand Junction has the experience and ability to perform comprehensive assessment and treatment to restore proper alignment and well-being for her patients.

Is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Safe?

Upper cervical chiropractic care is a safe, effective means of restoring proper alignment and function to the cervical spine and central nervous system. A multitude of case studies demonstrate the effectiveness of upper cervical chiropractic care. 

 The National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) points to the case of a woman that experienced multiple health issues after several auto accidents and other major trauma. Her complaints included chronic pain in her back, neck, and right knee. She experienced sciatica, fibromyalgia, migraines, and depression. 

 Once she began upper cervical chiropractic care, she improved quickly and continued demonstrating improvements in her symptoms.

What Are Benefits Of Receiving Chiropractic Care While Pregnant?

The American Pregnancy Association indicates that there are no known contraindications to a woman receiving chiropractic care during her pregnancy.

 The Association indicates that all chiropractors receive training to work with pregnant women, helping the mother maintain a healthier pregnancy while reducing neck, back or joint pain, optimal body alignment for birthing, as well as other benefits.
