What is chiropractic care?

Chiropractic care is a medical specialty in which a doctor of chiropractic administers conservative, non-invasive chiropractic adjustments (spinal manipulation) to promote your body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Chiropractic centers are usually focused on overall health and wellness, not just treating your symptoms. Our approach goes beyond pain management, although chiropractic may promote pain relief.

At Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic, it’s no different. Our chiropractic clinic aims to align your spine — particularly your upper cervical spine — to support better health from head to toe.

Chiropractic Orthospinology & Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Denver Upper Cervical Chiropractic proudly features high-quality chiropractic orthospinology treatment protocols.

Our very own Dr. Ty Carzoli is the only orthospinology chiropractor in the state of Colorado. He brings years of experience to his patients that they can’t find anywhere else in Colorado.

Orthospinology is an upper cervical subspecialty of the chiropractic profession. It focuses on the alignment and orientation of the upper cervical spine, as well as precise diagnostics.

While we may analyze and work on the entire spine, upper cervical spine treatment involves the following:

  • Atlas (C1 vertebra)
  • Axis (C2 vertebra)
  • Occipital bone (base of the skull)

There’s a reason the atlas is our logo: It is of the utmost importance.

Our sophisticated, 3-D digital imaging X-ray analysis of this vital area helps us detect misalignment patterns and their impact on the neural canal.

Patients are always surprised how much upper cervical spine misalignment can negatively affect the nervous system — and how much aligning the upper spine promotes healing.

This area is the most mobile of the spine, but without interlocking joints to cushion shock. Traumatic forces (such as falls), repetitive motion, sports injuries, or auto accidents can easily misalign these sensitive vertebrae.

These traumatic events may easily occur in childhood or during an event as common as a traumatic birthing process.

Common causes of upper cervical misalignment include:

  • 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
  • Traumatic trampoline landings
  • Work incidents
  • Car accidents
  • Repetitive motions
  • Sports injuries of every kind

Our orthospinology spinal correction is gentle enough for crying infants and arthritic grandmothers alike.

The chiropractic treatment we use is instrument-assisted with a 3-dimensional vector choice. This sophisticated feature provides Dr. Carzoli and his team with the unique opportunity to deliver a precise chiropractic adjustment in a specific direction, with the minimum amount of contact.
