What to Expect


First Step

Understanding what happened to your upper cervical spine is our priority here at Portland Specific Chiropractic. It helps us gauge the severity of the cervical subluxation and the number of adjustments you would need to correct your posture. To do that, we need to use X-ray scans and check your nerve health.


Second Step

After confirming the presence of cervical misalignment, we will perform a more thorough and specific 3D X-ray scan. This allows us to get exact measurements of the C1 and C2 bones and provide you with life-changing cervical adjustments.


Last Step

The last step involves carrying out the required adjustments and ensuring that you see improvements in your cervical spine posture. It’s a delicate process that requires putting minimal pressure on the affected areas of the neck. This way, your topmost neck bones can shift back to their proper places, and you can experience changes in your health.

Once we complete the procedure, we will recheck the structure using X-rays scans. The results from the scan will allow us to determine whether your bones have shifted back or you need to receive additional adjustments.  

We strongly advise consulting with Dr. Nikolai Young, our certified Upper Cervical doctor, because each patient is different. This will give you a clear picture of the average length of time you need to wait until you see results. 

Here at Portland Specific Chiropractic, we aim to help you with various health problems, ranging from vertigo attacks to recurring back pain. With our thorough and gentle neck bone adjustments, we hope to provide you with hope and healing so you can enjoy life to the fullest.
