Why Upper Cervical

Why Choose Upper Cervical Care in Overland Park

At APEX Chiropractic, Dr. Chris utilizes a specific form of Chiropractic Care called Knee Chest Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic. With one simple adjustment, this technique removes the interference in the upper part of the neck, where the brainstem sits.

The brainstem controls every automatic function and response in the body, such as pain, sleep, digestion, blood pressure, heart rate, body temperature, and many more. When the brainstem and the body can communicate freely, you can live life to its fullest.
At APEX, our purpose is to help you achieve your health goals with as few adjustments as possible.

We utilize only State-of-the-Art technology to determine where and when care is needed. Please feel free to read through the following descriptions of the technology utilized at Apex Chiropractic.

Digital X-ray

Upper Cervical Practitioners take specialized x-rays to determine a patient's listing. This listing determines the patient's type of adjustment to clear out their subluxation. The information from the x-ray is the foundation of the care delivered by the Upper Cervical Doctor. Therefore, the doctor must utilize the proper x-ray equipment to acquire precise x-rays. This results for 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. However, the loss of alignment that occurs when utilizing the standard equipment can result in misrepresentation of the anatomy resulting in a miscalculation of a patient listing, further resulting in an incorrect adjustment, which will enable the patient to get well. At Apex Chiropractic 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.

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 straightforward technology.

Thermography reads the heat from underneath the skin on the back of the neck, which is controlled by the brainstem, to allow us to determine if the adjustment is necessary. If the adjustment is necessary, 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 Apex Chiropractic. This procedure is used on every visit to monitor the course of your care objectively.


After every adjustment, you will relax in a Zero Gravity Recliner. This allows the adjustment to hold correctly. 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. As a result, the Zero Gravity Recliner provides a path to harmony between your body and gravity.
