An Upper Cervical Chiropractic Specialty

The Society of Chiropractic Orthospinology is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting one of the greatest health care procedures in the world. This procedure, based on the original work of the late Dr. John F. Grostic, involves the correction of the misalignment of the upper cervical spine, also known as the Occipito-Atlanto-Axial Subluxation Complex, and its influence on the central nervous system, body balance and general health. Since its inception over 70 years ago, this upper cervical procedure has helped millions of people overcome countless health problems.
