The Misalignment

Free Consultation...

The focus

Upper Cervical Care is the correct alignment of the two vertebrae in the spine: the atlas and the axis.Think of your spinal cord as a computer cable that transmits information between your brain and the rest of your body. The atlas and axis protect the brainstem, which is the control centre for all communication in the brain and body.


These top two vertebrae also support the full weight of the head: approximately 4.0 Kg, which is the same weight as a bowling ball.

  • Body Imbalance
  • The Misalignment

When the atlas and axis are aligned, the brain is able to communicate properly with the rest of your body. Your body is able to function and do what it is supposed to do. However, if the atlas and axis are not aligned, they cannot support the weight of the head and create body imbalance. This imbalance creates tremendous physical stress through every joint in your body.

  • Migraine Headaches
  • Stress Headaches
  • Sore Shoulders
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Tingling in the Hands

The Nervous System

An upper cervical misalignment may also disrupt the communication between the brain and the rest of the body. This problem may lead to a wide array of neurological or spinal related disorders, which people have reported to improve following upper cervical care.

  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • (MS)
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Vertigo or Dizziness
  • Difficulty Concentrating

A Different Approach

Upper Cervical is remarkably different from what most people experience as “general chiropractic.” With years of research and development in America, it is still relatively new to Australia.

The focus of Upper Cervical chiropractic is to correct a misalignment of the upper neck. Although the scope of Upper Cervical care is small, by addressing the cause of injury at the power source means there can be potential benefits throughout the body.
