About Upper Cervical Spine Center

FREE Consultation

Upper Cervical Spine Center helps patients suffering from a variety of conditions.

Our Charlotte team is dedicated to helping people. We gather each morning before our first appointment and go through the schedule of patients for the day. We talk about who’s coming in, how he or she is progressing, and how we can better serve each patient. We, at Charlotte Upper Cervical Spine Center, have one goal for each person that walks into our office and that is to make his or her life better.

Everyone in our Charlotte office has had his or her life dramatically improved by upper cervical care. We not only teach what we practice, but we also live it. We all get checked and adjusted on a regular basis so we can be at our best when providing upper cervical care to our patients in the different Areas We Serve.
