In Their Own Words…
Patients share how upper cervical chiropractic care has eased their pain and changed their lives.



“Past chiropractors did not focus on my upper cervical spine, which was the root of my issues, nor did they pay attention to my overall health, resulting in the need for continuous adjustments in the rest of my spine. Additionally, in some cases the adjustments from past chiropractors were harsh and painful. Dr. Trader is very different than any chiropractor I have seen in the past. She is thorough, precise, knowledgeable, and genuinely working to help me with my health issues. Each visit includes an exam and her adjustments are focused, precise and as minimal as possible to achieve results. Dr. Trader’s goal is to help me keep my spinal alignment and to have fewer, less frequent adjustments over time.”

“I have been grinding my teeth since I was a child…I was diagnosed with TMJ in my late teens…and I had 2-3 migraines a week for 15 years…I’ve tried doctors, traditional chiropractors…and they would prescribe me more and more medications. The traditional chiropractors would make me come to their office 3-4 times a week. The expense was out of control and my pain was still the same or worse. 

I no longer have the pain in my jaw muscles and weekly migraines. Also, I have other areas of pain that have decreased also. If you have tried everything to alleviate your pain with no luck, you must try a UC chiropractor.”

–Carrie L



“I have, since a teen, had pain in my neck and upper shoulders…I’ve had migraines for the past 25 years. With Dr. Kim’s care, my migraines are now few and far between and much less severe. If there are other aches and pains, given a short time after the adjustment the pains reside and life is so much freer and more enjoyable. I most definitely recommend her as a kind and honest doctor, who truly wants to help us be pain-free and live life to the fullest.”

–Julie L



“I have had pain throughout my entire body for the past 13 years and have tried many different chiropractors. My relief was short term if at all. Now that I have been receiving upper cervical chiropractic care the pain in my back is no longer an everyday pain that I just have to live with. Because of the care I get from Dr. Trader, I have been able to reach my goals of running a half marathon and a triathlon this year. I have more energy and am a happier person now that I am not in pain all the time. I feel that I am able to gain control of my life and live the active lifestyle that I want.”

–Jessica R



“I had experienced numbness and pain in my left hip and leg for approximately two years. I could not stand or walk for any significant time or distance without pain. Traditional chiropractic applications provided minimal relief. After two applications from Dr. Kim the pain and numbness has gone away. It is now four months later and I have resumed all my prior activities.” 

–Bill R



My 13-year-old daughter has occasional headaches, ankle and leg pain, and general hormonal issues. Her atlas was misaligned. After a couple adjustments, it started to hold on its own, giving her a more pain-free, enjoyable life at home as well as school.

Dr. Kim gives us ideas for better nutrition and exercise teens can be interested in. She is kind and gentle, yet effective. My daughter likes her and feels she takes time with her and cares about her as a whole person. Her atlas adjustments are painless and help her stay healthy as she grows.” 

–Julie L



“I was dizzy and felt like I was spinning when I woke up and throughout the day. I then went to get adjusted with Dr. Kim and have felt great since. I would encourage anyone to try an adjustment and explain the theory behind upper cervical chiropractic. Knowing that a little adjustment can make such a big difference can make such a difference in your life.”

“…After the first adjustment, Dillon slept soundly all night for the first time in his life. He smiled at me when I spoke. Each adjustment brought more milestones…within a month…he was an energetic, healthy, happy four year old boy. His only obstacle proved to be just one little bone that needed to be correctly placed back into the proper position. At Dillon’s four year checkup…Dillon was at or about average in every category. His gross motor skills were at the top of the charts. When his school started back in August, his teachers were stunned. Dillon now meets all his goals in record time…His life will never be the same, thanks to God and to Upper Cervical Care…”

“I had suffered an ongoing chronic pain for 23 years…With each appointment the pain began to melt away. I gave up the prescription drugs one by one and soon they were all out of my body! My mind cleared and I began to live my life with full gusto! … Instead of being bound to the bed with agony and self-defeating thoughts, I look forward to each day with a heart full of gratitude. I now manage a fitness gym where I spread the news about Upper Cervical Care to those without hope.”

–Linda, Charlotte, NC



“Matthew was on breathing treatments around the clock (every 2-4 hours), which led to surgery having tubes put in his ears…Matthew received his first upper cervical adjustment at the age of 14 months. Within hours Matthew’s nose started to drain. I cried. It was the first time in his life, his nose had drained without medicine! … Within a few months of beginning Upper Cervical Chiropractic care, Matthew was completely off all breathing treatments, and has never had another antibiotic. Matthew is 5 years old now, and is not bothered by the sinus or ear problems that plagued the first year and a half of his life. This is due to the Upper Cervical Care he receives at the clinic.”

–Laura, Missouri



“Our 15 year old son was so embarrassed about his nightly incontinence that he would cry and beg to skip school. He retreated from everyone. Following his first Upper Cervical correction, the incontinence diminished, and over a few weeks disappeared completely!”

–An anonymous mother, Kentucky



“Prior to finding Upper Cervical Care, I suffered from a number of physical ailments. My main problem was migraine headaches five to six times a week…After just one adjustment by Dr. Smith, my symptoms disappeared! … I was shocked to find out that so many of my problems were associated with my atlas being out of alignment.”

–Krystl, Huntington Beach, CA



“A friend told me about Upper Cervical Specific Care, so I tried it. Six months later, I am off Allegra, my stomach problems are basically gone, and my sore throat and ear aches are completely gone! I rarely have shoulder pain, and my energy level is much better! Probably the most miraculous of all, is that my thyroid is actually getting better!”

–Georgeanne, Kentucky
