Upper cervical symptoms can be caused by a whiplash injury, chronic poor posture or some other stress to the neck. When the upper cervical spine stretches beyond its capacity the upper cervical spinal cord can be irritated and in essence choked off.

The nerves in the upper cervical spine control and influence the blood supply to the head, pituitary gland, the face and scalp, the inner and middle ear, the eyes as well as the entire sympathetic nervous system. Pressure on these nerves can lead to dizziness or vertigo, migraine or tension headaches, poor concentration or amnesia, difficulty sleeping or insomnia, digestive disorders, depression, ear infections, altered immune and hormone function, fatigue, high blood pressure and irritability.

The Chiropractors at Frisco Spinal Rehab are experts at detecting the root cause of these symptoms whether the disorder is whiplash or cervical subluxation.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned here and have been involved in an accident, call Frisco Spinal Rehab for immediate diagnosis and treatment.
