Benefits of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Treatment For Trigeminal Neuralgia

Decreased Pain

One of the ways the body shows a subluxation is through pain and inflammation. When the nervous system is not communicating well, it triggers a pain response. Upper cervical chiropractic care helps eliminate neck pain by properly aligning the nervous system so messages flow more effectively.

Better Sleep

When the spine is in proper alignment, the nervous system is able to communicate as it should. This results in better quality and quality of sleep. Since over 60 percent of adults suffer from sleeping problems, improving your sleep could have a huge impact on your overall livelihood.

Fewer Colds and Flu

Studies show that long-term chiropractic care increases an individual’s immune system strength by as much as 200%. This equips the immune system to fight off viruses and bacteria that you come in contact with that cause colds, ear infections, and more. When you do get sick, your body will be able to fight off the sickness more effectively and faster.

Fewer Prescription Drugs

When the body is functioning at its best possible level, sicknesses that require prescription drugs are far less common. This means that people who pursue upper cervical chiropractic care often notice that they need fewer prescription drugs, hospital visits, and doctor’s office trips.


What to Expect

At your first visit with us, we’ll get a detailed background of your health history, and then move forward with a thorough examination, and x-rays. We use x-rays to show us exactly where the misalignment is occurring in the neck or spine, so we can determine if the pain is being caused by an upper cervical issue, and if we can provide you with the help you need. With regular treatment, our patients have been able to achieve incredible results, leading them to feel better, live healthier, and experience life without debilitating back pain. 

Reduce Your Pain, Improve Your Health

We have a wide range of patients from young to old, with issues ranging from sports injuries, auto accidents, and chronic conditions, and with every patient, our goal is the same: reduce their pain, and improve their health. We frequently hear from our patients that they’ve been everywhere in Athens and Watkinsville, no one’s been able to help, they’ve been prescribed the full array of drugs and medication, and their next option is surgery. Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a non invasive, natural method towards healing that we recommend everyone try before resorting to more extreme treatment options. If we can help your body heal naturally, the way it was intended to, then you may find you have no need for other care options.

We Can Help with All of Your Chiropractic Needs

Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic is here for you, whether you’re looking to get back on the right track with your health, or you’re ready for a new treatment option, we’re happy to help, and ready to get you in for your first consultation. The brain controls the majority of the function of the body, and the brain stem, which is located around the top two bones of the upper spine, can frequently become misaligned due to injury, posture, etc. When a misalignment occurs in this area, the communication between the millions of nerves that flow through this area can be disturbed, which leads to a myriad of issues, pains, and symptoms. Our goal is to restore the upper cervical spine into proper alignment, and thus allow proper communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body. Once the misalignment has been corrected, the body is free to restore natural communication with the brainstem, leading to reduced pain and improved living. 

Our Watkinsville chiropractor’s office takes great pride in what we do, and we look forward to helping patients live happier, healthier lives for years to come.
