WELCOME TO Rogue Valley Chiropractic Clinic
Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.
Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.
The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.
D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school in 1897, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.
Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.
Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.

UPPER CERVICAL CARE IN MEDFORD
A simple concept with profound results. Upper Cervical Care is based on the universal law of cause and effect. For every effect or symptom, physical or mental, there must be a cause. Upper Cervical Doctors Jeffrey Taylor and Ed McCullough in Medford focus on locating and removing the interference to the nervous system that can the cause of the health condition. Removing this interference allows the body to heal naturally without drugs or surgery. The are of expertise for Upper Cervical chiropractors is the top two bones in the neck and most importantly, the brain stem. When a misalignment occurs between the head and neck at the the level of the top two bones in the neck, brain to body communication is disrupted. An Upper Cervical correction is very controlled; there is no pulling, tugging or jerking of the head. This precise yet gentle touch allows the head, neck and spine to return to the proper position, thus removing the interference and restoring balance to the body.
Drs, Taylor and McCullough use the Atlas Orthogonal and NUCCA techniques to help patients achieve results and get on the path to Wellness.
