Upper Cervical Chiropractic

The difference in care at The Specific is simple, yet powerful. We objectively measure all aspects of clinical care using both Computerized Infrared Thermography and Biomechanical, Digital X-rays while focusing solely on the top two bones of the neck and the unique relationship those bones have with the central nervous system. These elements alone allow us to get results with our patients’ health where there haven’t been any. This is upper cervical chiropractic.

We love helping people overcome chronic health challenges who haven’t responded to traditional medical or traditional chiropractic care. Our favorite phrases are:

  • “I’ve tried everything”
  • “I’m just going to have to try and live with it.”

We stand for empowering our community to make smarter choices relative to their health and wellness, and that means providing them with the environment and opportunities to do so. Not only are we passionate about what we do (and good at it!), we’re committed to creating workshops and events to help further our community’s ability to heal, grow, and thrive beyond their greatest potential.
