Our Upper Cervical Care Center Helps Provide Total Body Wellness:
At our upper cervical care center, we correct the entire spine instead of individual problem areas.
This helps to restore the mind-body connection and promotes health and wellness. Balancing the spine removes unnecessary stress off the spinal joints thereby reducing the effects of spine degeneration. Various symptoms may be positively impacted including stress, migraines associated with neck pain and sciatic nerve pain relief.

Before and after
x-rays allow us to “see” your exact
spinal misalignment and correction. Your personal misalignment is
as individual as a “fingerprint”.
“To see is to know and to not know
is to guess, and we never guess with your health.”
Trigeminal Neuralgia and Chiropractic Care
The NUCCA, QSM3 and Advanced Orthogonal procedures utilize a gentle touch and a controlled adjustment to the first vertebra of the spine, commonly called the Atlas. This adjustment reduces the spinal misalignment and restores proper motion to the vertebrae. Misaligned spinal bones can irritate the nerves that run from the brain and spinal cord to the head and face.
Why Trigeminal Neuralgia and Chiropractic Care May Be the Best Answer
One of the major challenges that people suffering with Trigeminal Neuralgia face, is that the pain worsens and becomes more constant over time, requiring higher dosages of pain medication, that may lose their effectiveness and come with potentially harmful side effects.
Often, misalignments in the upper cervical spine, caused by some type of trauma to the region as a result of an accident or injury, cause compression on certain nerves (The Trigemninal Nerve: cranial nerve V) that result in pain such as that experienced by Trigeminal Neuralgia sufferers. The Trigeminal Nerve originates in the brainstem in the region of the first cervical vertebrae (The Atals or C1). The misaligned atlas is detected through an examination and diagnostic testing that includes precision x-rays and Thermographic/Surface EMG scans.
By applying the NUCCA, QSM3 and Advanced Orthogonal procedures, a chiropractor skilled in this technique can relieve irritation on the damaged nerve. After correcting the misalignment in the upper cervical spine, normal communication is re-established between the brain and any pressure on the affected trigeminal nerve is removed, thereby alleviating the pain. Post-adjustment x-rays and Thermographic/Surface EMG scans are taken to ensure that a successful spinal correction has taken place.
Helping People with Migraine and Dizziness and Spinal Degeneration
There are many categories of headaches, including migraines, tension headaches, cluster headaches, sinus headaches and cervicogenic (originating from the neck) headaches. Science is still determining the exact causes of headaches, with research citing a trauma-induced origin for several types of headaches1-2. Evidence is pointing to mild trauma to the head, neck or upper back that increases the risk of headache onset3.
Researchers have categorized some headaches as "cervicogenic" in origin, triggered by dysfunction of the neck4. Headaches can begin immediately following the trauma or take years to develop.
If you have tried everything but you have not tried Upper Cervical Care, headache relief may be a phone call away.
The purpose of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is to improve the alignment and function of the neck; reducing irritation to the nerves and blood vessels that may play a role in headaches5. Many headache sufferers can remember a specific trauma such as a head injury, motor vehicle accident or fall, however some do not.
At our upper cervical care center, an upper cervical evaluation consists of a thorough health history, examination, computerized neurological evaluation and laser-aligned digital radiography. This evaluation allows the doctor to determine whether or not the underlying cause of the headaches may be originating from the neck (cervicogenic).
If after the evaluation, the doctor feels your headaches may be originating from a small misalignment in the neck, he will tell you. If not, he will tell you that too. The upper cervical procedure is a gentle procedure that does not require any twisting or turning of the neck.

Here's what some of our patients had to say about our care for arthritis of the neck and spine:
"...the headaches were so severe that at times I was unable to work; thank you for all that you have done for me... It is the best I have felt in years." Ken
"I suffered from severe migraines for 20 years. I was miserable. I feel like a new person! I have more energy than I did when I had the severe migraines. I cannot thank them enough for all that they have given back to me. Something so precious and something my husband has not seen in a long time - my life back! Thank you for all you have done for me!" Francine
"I experienced blinding headaches at the top of my head and face. Could not eat, sleep or enjoy life. I tried pills, seeing doctors, physical therapy. I tried 5 different kinds of medicine including pain medication. I lost a lot of sleep and lost weight. I had no life. I didn't go on vacations. I was miserable in work and at home. I was not nice to be around. I feel like a new person. I'd gladly recommend them." Carol
"My headaches, migraines and dizziness have been crippling and debilitating. I no longer enjoyed life and missed running around and playing with my wife and children...This technique is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced after being told by doctors that I was going to have to deal with the pain for the rest of my life." Bob
"I've been going to chiropractors all of my life due to neck, lower back pain and headaches. I was taking pain killers for my headaches and sometimes muscle relaxants for lower back pain. In addition, I spent a lot of time trying to sleep away the headaches. After I was recommended to Dr. Larry Arbeitman and the Upper Cervical technique- Fran

Individualized Upper Cervical Adjusting Techniques
At the upper cervical care center, every adjustment and care plan is tailored to the individual patient's
needs. The Upper Cervical Chiropractic approach takes into account the individual's size,
shape, and degree of misalignment of the vertebra in the upper cervical
region. This personalized measurement allows the doctor to effectively
realign the entire spinal column. We can custom tailor an approach for people who have suffered from accidents and back pain or those with health challenges that progressed slowly over time.
Verified and Objective Corrections to gain chronic back pain relief
At the upper cervical care center, corrections are verified with special equipment including x-rays
to ensure that a correction of the atlas misalignment has been achieved and to monitor spine degeneration over time. Computerized neurological
testing is performed on all patients initially to establish a functional
baseline and throughout care to objectively monitor progress.
