About Our Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Marysville

There are many conditions that are treated with chiropractic care, but not all chiropractors are the same. While general chiropractic helps many, those who want a more gentle and effective solution find themselves in search of an upper cervical chiropractor in Marysville, WA. At Health First Chiropractic - Marysville, our chiropractor Dr. Robert Clarke, DC is trained in the Blair Upper Cervical technique, which set him apart from other chiropractors that are serving Snohomish County and the surrounding area.

What's Special About Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?

One of the main differences that set apart the Blair Upper Cervical technique from others in chiropractic is that it aims to heal a variety of ailments in a less invasive way than other treatments, including general chiropractic. The idea behind the approach is that misalignments in the upper neck can often throw off the balance of the entire body. Rather than popping or cracking, an upper cervical chiropractor in Marysville will focus on fixing misalignment in this limited area. Once that is done, the body is often able to heal itself once it has become properly balanced.

Conditions Treated With Blair Upper Cervical Treatment

Just because the Blair technique focuses on a limited area doesn't mean that treatment options are limited. Some common conditions that have been successfully treated by our upper cervical chiropractor in Marysville include

  • Neck and back pain
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Vertigo and related conditions
  • High blood pressure
  • Nerve problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple Sclerosis

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Clarke is the best in the business!!! He is knowledgeable, thorough, passionate, kind compassionate, and always professional. He worked me into his already busy schedule, when I was having severe vertigo, caused by a pinched nerve in my neck. Dr. Clarke had me back to good in just a few short weeks."
    Jennifer D.
  • "I have had a hard time finding relief for my back pain, I've been a chronic 7 for almost 5-6 years now (on a pain scale from 1 -10). After about 6-7 visits and after 3-4 adjustments, I was amazed to realize I no longer had any back pain. Dr. Clarke was careful about doing adjustments until he saw all my x-rays, which I appreciated, as my mid-back was literally like a 'brick' and I didn't want to get hurt in the process. He is very gentle with the adjustments and I'm still somewhat speechless tha"
