The neck and spine are made up of small bones called vertebrae. The top two are referred to as the upper cervical spine. They protect the brainstem. They also allow you to move your head.

For many, such a misalignment is the underlying cause of chronic pain conditions like fibromyalgia.
Perhaps you have already read testimonies of people who suffered from fibromyalgia and experienced much relief through upper cervical chiropractic. There are also numerous studies that have been done. One such study involving 23 people showed that the patients experienced as much as 90% fewer symptoms after receiving relief.
