About Wilmington Upper Cervical

Find out more...

Our doctors are all Wilmington UC Chiropractors.

This means they have gone beyond their doctorate degree in chiropractic and have taken hundreds of hours of post-graduate training studying the top two bones of the neck, the atlas, and the axis. This procedure has provided the opportunity to help patients from all over the world with a wide range of conditions.

Our Wilmington 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 is coming in, how he or she is progressing, and how we can better serve each patient. At the Upper Cervical Spine Center of Wilmington, we have one goal for each person that walks into our office: To make his or her life better
