Upper Cervical Chiropractic is a specific speciality of chiropractic which puts its emphasis on the atlanto-occipital joint in the upper spine. This division of chiropractic has been in practice since the 1930’s. It has many positive effects on the alignment of the spine, posture and the symptoms experienced by those who suffer with TMJ. At Dr. Stuart Himmelstein's office in NE Philadelphia, PA we use the State-of-the-Art EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology).
The purpose of upper cervical chiropractic for TMJ is to reverse the damage done by the trauma that caused it.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)
An upper cervical chiropractor corrects posture and alignment of the head, neck and spine, which can relieve painful symptoms of many disorders, including TMJ. Upper cervical chiropractic is safe, precise and gentle. When your muscles and bones are pulling evenly they each carry the weight and perform the functions they were meant to do, so they are not overly taxed or burdened with tasks and weights they were not meant to carry.
