Upper Cervical Chiropractic

“Upper Cervical” refers to the top two bones in the neck and the relationship that they have with the nervous system. At True Wellness, we use sophisticated technology to analyze your upper neck, to detect upper neck injury, and to aid in the correction of nervous system deficiencies. The scientific instrument measures how the nervous system functions from visit to visit so throughout the course of care we can objectively monitor how you are progressing.

Due to the high degree of mobility in the upper neck, a fall or bump, an automobile accident, any trauma to the body or head or even a difficult birth can cause the top two bones in the spine to slip out of normal position. Their abnormal position puts pressure on the nervous system affecting all systems of the body. This could lead to a myriad of different health problems ranging from Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Sleep Disorders, Migraines, Chronic Pain to Neck or Back Pain and Allergies. In addition, when the top two bones are in this abnormal position the rest of the spine twists and turns to compensate creating body imbalance and causing wide spread pain anywhere in the joints and muscles of the body.

The Upper Cervical Chiropractic method used by Dr. Duda is different from other more traditional chiropractic and medical treatments in that it is extremely gentle and non-invasive. This procedure is barely felt by the patient and requires no forceful twisting, pulling or jerking motion of the head or neck. Dr. Duda’s post-doctorate training in the anatomy, physiology and neurology of the upper neck enables him to develop and administer a carefully planned adjustment. The precise, scientific adjustment restores the proper position to the first or second cervical vertebra thereby correcting your body imbalance and rebalancing your nervous system. In fact, substantial relief is often experienced immediately after the very first adjustment with welcome improvements in both mobility and comfort level.
