About UC Studies

Welcome to the upper cervical studies blog.

My purpose in writing this blog is to demonstrate that chiropractic treatment is a viable option for various health conditions to the chiropractic patient by presenting research articles, case studies and commentary. The focus of my attention will be directed towards specific upper cervical (UC)  treatments and their associated outcomes. I am doing this as a “giving back” or rather “pay-it-forward” gesture to others who are interested in knowing how UC care can help.

I found out about UC chiropractic while a student at Palmer School of Chiropractic in Florida. I was in my 3rd of 13 quarters and we were assigned as small groups to look up certain conditions that were related to vertigo and Meniere’s disease. My contribution to the assignment was to find the chiropractic treatment options that were available to people who suffer with these conditions. I found through individual case studies that these conditions responded exceptionally well to upper cervical chiropractic care. We were then asked to research Trigeminal Neuralgia and I found that many patients responded to the same upper cervical treatment. The third assignment included tinnitus and ear infections. Guess what the preferred chiropractic treatment is … That’s right, UC adjustments.

“Chiropractic is a philosophy, science and art of things natural; a system of adjusting the segments of the spinal column by hand only, for the correction of the cause of dis-ease.”

– BJ Palmer

This blog will delineate the current science and research of upper cervical chiropractic care in a way we all can understand. I have read numbers of articles since 3rd quarter, both old and new theorizing and demonstrating the effectiveness of UC care. I am convinced of it’s ability to effect a change to both mind and body and I know you, too, can find hope and healing by investigating further.
