A Brain Stem Specialist is a Chiropractor with advanced training in the C1 and C2 area of the spine.
These two cervical vertebrae are the home of the medulla oblongata, or the lowest portion of the brain stem. This sensitive and highly developed area of the central nervous system is the coordination center for your entire body.
Keeping this area “clear” involves special instrumentation and adjusting techniques.
Of the estimated 55,000 licensed chiropractors in the U.S., only 1,500 or so are specialized in this very unique form of chiropractic.
A Brain Stem Specialist may also adjust the lower bones of the spine and extremities, but the primary focus is always the brain stem.
