Upper Cervical Care Chiropractic in Michigan

What Our Customers Say

I have been seeing Dr. McIver for almost a year. I had started experiencing very bad Migraines and tension in my right shoulder and neck. I work at a desk all day staring at a computer. Numerous visits to the doctor for one pill after another with no cure for the Migraines, it was just making them tolerable and masking the underlying issue.

When Dr. McIver first put my atlas/axis bone back in place it was like the weight of the world had been lifted off my head. Since this day I have not experienced ONE Migraine.

Since continuing on with my treatment plan with Dr. McIver I have been noticing my eyes were tired at the end of the day and I was squinting a lot. I scheduled my yearly exam and not only did my vision improve but the hole in my right eye that we have been monitoring for years was gone. The Eye Dr. said it healed itself.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care has defiantly improved my overall health and I hope you find the same results as I have.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Welcome to our chiropractic office! Here are some common questions that our patients ask:

    The brainstem controls every automatic function and response in the body, such as pain, sleep, digestion, blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and many more. The purpose of Upper Cervical Chiropractic care is to make sure this alignment of the upper spine is correct. When the brainstem and the body are able to communicate with each other freely, you are able to live life to its fullest.

    Yes! A cervical spine chiropractor that focuses on the upper bones of the neck can greatly increase the range of motion as well as decrease muscle spasms and pain.

    Upper cervical Chiropractic is safe and effective for people of all ages. Your upper cervical chiropractor will determine the best adjusting style for you and deliver a specific correction based on your unique presentation.

    Everyone is different and how people respond to an adjustment can look different as well. Most people feel a sense of relief after their upper cervical care. The muscles will be required to move the spine differently than before and this can cause the system to feel like you just went to the gym. Muscle fatigue post adjustment is normal and a good sign that you held the correction!

    A typical upper cervical treatment will take no longer than a normal appointment. 5-7 minutes is about how long the appointment will last and nothing more is required from the patient. Sometimes a special table or technique is utilized and your upper cervical chiropractor will go over everything before you get started.

    Traditional chiropractic is focused on pain relief. Upper Cervical Chiropractic treatment is focused on the overall function of your system so that your body can return to a state of balance. When your system is in balance, you maintain, regulate, and heal more efficiently and a lot of symptoms will reduce if not go away completely. The power that made the body can heal the body. We want to make sure it’s in the best state to do just that!
