Don't Live with Aches and Pains.

Experts state that the four most common types of pain are low back pain, knee pain, headaches and neck pain. Experts also estimate that 80% of the US population will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. These statements make more sense when you consider that the average age someone first visits a chiropractor is 43 years old. Can you imagine if your first visit to the dentist was at 43 years old?

If you’re one of the vast majority of Americans who experience neck pain or back pain, chiropractic therapy may be beneficial for improving your quality of life. Our patients come to us seeking relief from chronic pain, migraines, and more, and it’s our job as Watkinsville chiropractors to help our patients achieve alignment in the spinal column, and improve their well being. Your quality of life is dependent upon your health, which is why we work to help your body heal the way it was intended to, using upper cervical and chiropractic techniques to adjust and carefully manipulate the spine into proper alignment with the spinal column.
Prevention is always the best treatment, so we recommend regular visits to your local chiropractor in Athens or Watkinsville to prevent further damage from occurring, and to promote proper alignment in the neck and spine. There are many common ways that people develop neck and back pain, including bad posture, sitting at a desk all day, lack of exercise, over exercise, unsupportive footwear, you name it. Back pain can be debilitating, and can continue to increase as we age. Our non-invasive and detailed treatment plans can help our patients regain their sense of wellbeing, and help them to live more active and pain-free lifestyles. 

Dr. Cave’s expertise in upper cervical chiropractic techniques has helped many patients in Watkinsville and Athens Georgia experience relief from chronic pain, and alleviate symptoms from arthritis, meniere’s, migraines, and other painful conditions. It’s never too early to start taking your health seriously, and seek out an Athens chiropractor. It is important to all of us at Athens Upper Cervical Chiropractic to get our patients the highest level of care possible, so they can get back to living their lives fully, without chronic pain. During your visit, our chiropractor will take an x-ray of your spinal column, and will note any misalignment occurring before making any adjustments. Our approach to Watkinsville chiropractic care is rooted in science, data, and x-ray technology, so there’s no unnecessary cracking or popping. All adjustments are done gently and carefully, and because of the x-rays taken at each visit, we’ll be able to track the progression and improvement in the spinal alignment, which will guide our treatment. 

If you are currently suffering from back pain, neck pain, or migraines, we would love to work with you to help you get back to living your life. Spinal alignment and a healthy nervous system are at the foundation of health and wellbeing, so when we work on improving nervous system function through spinal adjustments, we can improve our patient’s health, and minimize their pain. No one should have to go through life with lower back pain or neck pain, and our Athens chiropractors are here to help. Through the use of state of the art x-ray imaging and the knee chest upper cervical technique, we have improved the lives of patients throughout the Watkinsville and Athens area, which has always been our main goal.

Upper cervical chiropractic medicine differs from traditional chiropractic care in that it primarily deals with the top two bones of the neck, closest to the brain stem. The brain stem is kind of a gateway into the nervous system, which involves all of the nerves of the body. When the upper neck bones are out of alignment, the rest of the body follows. This may manifest itself in forms of pain, conditions like Vertigo and Meniere’s, and more severe conditions like Trigeminal Neuralgia. Upper cervical chiropractors find that when the top two bones of the neck are restored to alignment, our patients find relief from their pain, and improved health and wellbeing. Our patients have reported improved immune functioning, better sleep, better moods, and generally improved quality of life after consistent care at Athens Upper Cervical. 

Our chiropractor Dr. Cave has received extensive training in carefully manipulating the neck and spine into alignment, and our office always uses the latest technology to take x-rays of your spine to determine where and if misalignment is occuring. We recommend giving us a visit like you would your primary care physician, or your dentist for regular checkups- because it’s important that we’re able to check for misalignment, and get you on a corrective treatment schedule if so. Our goal is to correct the alignment of the spine, and restore your body’s ability to heal and function naturally. Restoring natural alignment of the neck allows the brain stem and nervous system to function as they were intended to, which allows us to correct the root of the issue, rather than simply treating symptoms. 

We frequently see patients with pain of all sorts, and various conditions see vast improvements after regular upper cervical chiropractic treatment. We attribute this to the restoration of spinal alignment, which improves the functioning of the nervous system (which is highly sensitive, and extremely important to the body’s health). When the top two bones of the neck are out of alignment even the slightest bit, a myriad of issues can occur. Although there are no proven cures for conditions like multiple sclerosis or trigeminal neuralgia, upper cervical care has been shown to be effective as a treatment form, and has been proven to have enormous benefits for patients suffering from these conditions. 

When you are suffering from chronic pain or ailments, there are numerous courses of treatment that offer “quick fixes” or temporary relief. Oftentimes, our patients come to us after attempting one or several of these treatment plans and are looking for a better way. When a spine is structurally misaligned in the upper cervical area, conditions and symptoms may present themselves, and these symptoms are what lead our patients to seek out help. When these patients come to us, we’re looking to fix the root of these issues, rather than simply put a bandaid over the symptom. The underlying cause of many issues and pain can be traced back to the neck being misaligned, which is where we come in. By treating the underlying cause, we are able to significantly reduce (and often completely eliminate) our patients’ pain and ailments, and improve their health and quality of life.
