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.

Dr. Schurger says...

Dr Schurger has extensive training in the craniocervical junction (CCJ) with over 300 hours of anatomy, physiology, neurology, biomechanics & advanced imaging in this area.  His focus on the unique nature of the upper neck allows him to better understand the nature of several different conditions that may seem unconnected to the neck, yet in reality have an underlying root cause at the brain stem & spinal cord. As a  result, Dr Schurger can best address your health issues by addressing the cause of your problem, your inability to adapt due to brain stem & spinal cord stress as a result of small misalignments of the craniocervical junction (atlas & axis).
