Orthospinology Chiropractic Care

Our Unique Approach

Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic proudly features chiropractic orthospinology treatment protocols. Orthospinology is an Upper Cervical sub-specialty of the chiropractic profession, focusing on the alignment and orientation of the upper cervical spine. While the entire spine is analyzed and may be worked on, the primary area of treatment involves the Atlas (C1) and its biomechanical relationship to C2 and the occiput (base of the skull). Our digital imaging analysis of this vital area helps us in determining misalignment patterns and their impact on the neural canal.


This area is the most mobile of the spine, and without interlocking joints. Therefore, traumatic forces, such as falls, repetitive motion or automobile crashes, can easily misalign these sensitive vertebrae. These events can also easily occur in childhood, with something as common as a traumatic birthing process. Here are some additional frequent causes of upper cervical displacement in both children and adults:

  • Blows to the head
  • Chronic texting with head in the forward, down position
  • Consistent cradling of a cell phone to the ear
  • Excessive computer work
  • Unsuccessful gymnastic moves
  • Sports injuries of every kind
  • Traumatic trampoline landings
