Welcome to Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Marin!

You are not a number to us, or just our 2:30 appointment; you are unique and we treat you with the most customized (and affordable!) Chiropractic care plans.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Marin specializes not only in Upper Cervical Care, but also in Neuropathy, Pediatrics,
Pre/Post-Natal Care, The Webster Technique for In-Utero constraint, Pain Management, and Car Accident Patients.
We utilize only State-of-the-Art technology in order to determine where and when care is needed. Please feel free to read through the following descriptions of the technology that is utilized at UCCM.
Upper Cervical Practitioners take specialized x-rays in order to determine a patient's listing. This listing determines the type of adjustment the patient needs in order to clear out their subluxation. The information from the x-ray is the foundation to the care delivered by the Upper Cervical Doctor. Therefore, it is imperative that the doctor utilize the proper x-ray equipment in order to acquire such precise x-rays. This results in an absolute level of confidence in the accuracy of the x-rays, which leads to proper analysis and, therefore, a proper adjustment for the patient.
Standard x-ray equipment is mass-produced for the traditional medical market. The loss of alignment that occurs when utilizing the standard equipment can result in misrepresentation of the anatomy resulting in miscalculation of a patients listing, further resulting in an incorrect adjustment, which will enable the patient to get well. Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Marin's L-frame system enables our doctors to take all of your x-rays with perfect alignment, permanently.
All x-rays are developed digitally to eliminate the use of film and chemicals. You will receive a copy of your x-rays during your second visit on a CD. UCCM also uses a "Green" Generator in order to dramatically reduce energy use.
Digital Infrared Thermography
Thermography is a medical technology that is FDA approved as a neurodiagnostic procedure. This might sound scary and intense, but the truth is that this is a very simple technology.
Thermography simply reads the heat from underneith the skin on the back of the neck, which is controlled by the brainstem, in order to allow us to determine if the adjustment is necessary. If the adjustment is found to be necessary, then you will receive a post-thermographic evaluation to determine if the proper adjustment was made.
Titronic Thermographic Technology does not require the use of any radiation and is our most objective measure used at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Marin. This procedure is used on every visit to objectively monitor the course of your care.
Infrared Thermographic Imaging
As stated above, thermography is a medical technology that is FDA approved as a neurodiagnostic procedure.
We utilize an infrared thermographic camera to help see the severity of a neuropathy patient's nerve dysfunction. This helps us to determine if a patient is a good candidate for our neuropathy protocols.
Zero Gravity Resting Chair
After every adjustment, you will relax in Human Touch's Zero Gravity Recliner. This allows the adjustment to hold properly. The last thing that we want you to do is to leave immediately after the adjustment and go right back to the natural stress of life, which could potentially put you right back out of alignment.
Inspired by the Neutral Body Posture studied by NASA during the SkyLab program, the Zero Gravity Recliner places the body in a virtually weightless position to provide relaxation and minimum muscle tension. In this therapist-recommended position, the spine, hips, and knee joints are on or close to the balanced midpoint of the muscles. The Zero Gravity Recliner provides a path to harmony between your body and gravity.
