Upper Cervical Care at
Peak Vestibular Center

Upper Cervical is a method of chiropractic care known to help with many conditions. The method was founded in the early 1920s and refined over the years through the use of research and advancing technology. Images of the upper neck are obtained and measured to determine how the spinal misalignment shall be corrected. An instrument is used to complete this adjustment.

The Upper Cervical technique that Dr. Steward utilizes is termed Orthospinology, which is very similar to NUCCA.

What to Expect

At your first appointment, Dr. Steward will first take your medical history. Then, he will perform a gentle exam of your spine and any other areas of concern. X-rays will then be taken at the office if needed.

The upper cervical adjustment starts with the patient lying on their side as seen in the picture below. Next, Dr. Steward will measure the angle needed for the correction. Then, he will place the small stylus of the instrument right behind your ear. You will feel a gentle and subtle tap from the device. Then, you will come up to an upright position and Dr. Steward will recheck your pre-correction findings to verify success.
