What is the 12-week Upper Cervical Chiropractic care program?

The 12-week upper cervical chiropractic care program is designed to know about how long you maintain or "hold" between your previous adjustment. The 1 time per week for 12-week program also gives your body enough time to begin the healing process.


Once your upper cervical doctor knows about how long you are "holding" between your adjustments, he or she will recommend a tailor-made protocol based off of the data your doctor receives from each visit. Your doctor may recommend to schedule an appointment to get checked less frequently in order for your body to continue to function at its optimum level and heal to the fullest extent.


Our ultimate goal at OAC is for each individual to get their spine to hold for a minimum of 4-6 weeks following the 12-week care program.

How does the upper cervical doctor know whether you are holding between your vsits?


Upper cervical doctors must utilize some sort of gauge or instrument to determine whether you are holding your adjustment. Your doctor uses this specific instrument to perform a neurologic spinal examination to determine whether you are "holding" between each recommended visit.
