Orthospinology is one of the practices we specialize in, and Dr. Burke has many years of experience in the field and providing patients with a high level of care.

Orthospinology is focused on the Upper Cervical Subluxation Complex. For such a small area, the upper cervical spine has an immense effect on a person’s overall health. This is because vital messages from the brain, and the cerebral spinal fluids that surround the brain and spinal cord flow freely through this area. If this area is misaligned, the flow of these chemicals is restricted, which reduces the body’s ability to heal itself. Orthospinology uses x-ray analysis to locate the upper cervical misalignment, followed by a gentle correction of the C1 vertebrae. This small adjustment can have a tremendous effect, and many patients report relief from headaches, back pain, and other seemingly untreatable ailments. Orthospinology is complex and requires an expert like Dr. Burke to handle.

Why You Need a Chiropractor

If you are suffering from skeletal misalignment, you require the services of a chiropractor. In some cases, connective tissues and muscles can be strained by injury or incorrect use. When this happens, you are prone to experiencing pain, along with many other potential issues. Such pain can be relieved by taking painkillers. However, if the root cause of the pain is not addressed, the pain will never actually go away. Our chiropractic care addresses the cause of pain, not just the symptoms, and one of the ways we do so is with Orthospinology.
