First, a doctor will conduct an initial consultation to discuss your health history and find out about your symptoms, goals and concerns. Then, an upper cervical evaluation will be done to carefully assess your spinal structure and nervous system function. The upper part of the neck will be scanned, and if this exam indicates a possible problem, three-dimensional X-rays will be taken and precise measurements will be made to pinpoint the exact misalignment. This will conclude your first visit.
If your case is accepted, you will come back for a second visit during which time the doctor will review your tests and X-rays. If necessary, you will receive your first upper cervical correction. A third visit will be scheduled to make sure the correction is holding and a customized care plan designed specifically for your condition will be given.
