Dr. Schurger's Care Philosophy
Upper Cervical Care is a unique alternative health care solution. We focus on the source of your condition and not the symptom itself. Upper Cervical Care is based on the universal law of cause and effect. For every effect or symptom (physical or mental), there must be a cause. Upper Cervical doctors focus their efforts on locating and removing interference to the nervous system that may be the cause of your health condition. Removing this interference can allow the body to heal itself naturally without the use of potentially harmful drugs or surgery.
