Upper Cervical Chiropractor for Back Pain

We Take the QSM3 Approach

Our chiropractors focus on upper cervical care to reduce back pain. We direct our attention to adjusting the spine through the upper neck. The upper neck is the major neurological control center for postural muscles and pelvic balance. Improper recruitment of spinal muscles and an imbalanced pelvis lead to a twisting of the body's framework, resulting in chronic back pain.

The Quantum Spinal Mechanics3 (QSM3) method we practice improve the communication between your spine and brain. Our doctors also utilize the Cox Flexion-Distraction method to gently and effectively decompress lumbar disc herniations and spinal nerves associated with back pain. Correcting spinal misalignment and alleviating unwanted pressure on your nerves, tissues and discs can be enough to reduce back pain long-term.

5 Back Pain Diagnoses

Multiple muscles, nerves and tissues sit close to the spine. A variety of conditions affecting these areas can result in back pain, including:


From working and running errands to getting some much-needed rest, back pain interrupts your routine. If you're looking for a way to find relief without medications or surgery, the doctors at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Monmouth, LLC can help.

Previous traumatic injuries can cause damage to the connective tissues that maintain the straight position of the spine. The spine may become misaligned when these tissues tear, leading to irregular movement patterns, compensations and compressions. Over time, these irregularities will lead to increased damage to the lumbar spine. The progressive wear and tear can lead to degenerative changes, muscle spasms and inflammation resulting in chronic back pain.

Our highly qualified doctors can analyze and often correct the original trauma which led to the pain. Count on our New Jersey chiropractors for back pain to address the problem rather than just diagnose your symptoms. We'll use gentle chiropractic methods to mitigate pain and improve your outlook on life.

What Defines Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain describes conditions that last between three and six months. In many cases, the pain is severe enough that patients have trouble standing, walking and completing daily tasks.

Traditional care usually involves therapy, oral medications and injections to help patients cope with the pain, but this approach doesn't address the root of the issue. Our upper cervical chiropractors for back pain in New Jersey specialize in alternative methods to correct spinal misalignments and bring lasting relief.
