What is Upper Cervical Care (also known as “Orthospinology”)? 

Orthospinology is a gentle chiropractic technique and analysis system that restores the body’s natural ability to achieve optimal health, reduce pain and ease chronic health problems. 

What’s the Difference Between Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care vs Regular Chiropractic Care?

Upper cervical care does not require any twisting or popping to manipulate the spine. An upper cervical chiropractor focuses on the health of the neck vertebrae knowing the rest of the spine will follow suit when the top two are in working order.

Celebrities for Upper Cervical Care 

Upper Cervical Care has helped celebrities including Montel Williams with MS and Jim McMahon with brain fog. Montel Williams was diagnosed with MS in 1999. Since then, he’s tried a variety of treatments to combat his disease, including chiropractic care. According to the former talk show host, the results were positive

Williams claims that his pain is severe and unrelenting, yet with chiropractic care he says, “I am walking differently. My pain is less; I have already regained strength in my left leg. My left leg has dropped because I found out that my pelvis was tilted, it’s dropped back down, they are now the same length; it’s the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me.”

For McMahon, his miracle story came about after a visit to New York upper cervical chiropractor Dr. Scott Rosa. After a specialized scan in the FONAR Upright MRI, Jim was found to have significant misalignment at the base of his skull causing obstruction to the flow of his spinal fluid. McMahon received Rosa’s patented I.G.A.T. (Image Guided Atlas Treatment) which, Jim says literally saved his life.

Just moments after the first cervical adjustment, McMahon said "it felt like a toilet bowel flushed and all the pain and stress went away". This occurred because the CSF (Cerebrospinal Fluid) flow went from being obstructed to flowing normally, allowing it to remove the neurotoxins and wastes that are a byproduct of brain function. This improved Jim McMahon's dementia symptoms as well his brain fog, migraines and slurred speech. .”
