Get Your Life Straight—Upper Cervical Care in San Antonio TX

Upper Cervical Care deals with your head and neck. If the upper cervical area—the top of your spine—is misaligned, there is a wide variety of health issues and unpleasant symptoms that can arise. Upper Cervical Care in San Antonio, TX can provide the much-needed relief you’re looking for.

Misalignment can happen in many ways, and you may not realize why you’re experiencing these symptoms. Anything from an accident to repetitious, minor activities over time—like craning your neck as you look at your phone—can result in upper cervical abnormalities, which can give you headaches, migraines, vertigo, neck pain, and even back pain.

Common Symptoms Seen in our Office

Headaches & Migraines

The crushing pain of a headache or the pulsing throb of a migraine can steal hours or days from your life, keeping you away from family & work. Fortunately, lasting relief is possible.

Neck & Back Pain Sciatica

Does your neck, back, or leg ache relentlessly? Does it sometimes flare into a sharp, incapacitating pain?

Dizziness, Vertigo & Meniere's

Poor balance, dizziness, and vertigo can prevent you from performing basic daily functions. For normal balance and body positioning, you need a healthy flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid.

Post-Concussion Syndrome

Concussion symptoms usually last 7 to 10 days. But if they persist, you may be dealing with more than a head and brain injury. Concussion-related neck injury or misalignment could be the root cause.

Facial Pain, TMJ & Trigeminal Neuralgia

When facial pain flares, everything in your life stops until the agony passes. Excruciating conditions like trigeminal neuralgia & TMJ can result from fluid imbalances within the skull.

Chronic Pain & Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia & MS

If you suffer from one of these neurological conditions, your constant pain & fatigue can overshadow or even ruin your favorite activities.
