New England Spinal Care

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.

Upper Cervical Care

Upper Cervical is a specialty in chiropractic that is practiced by only 1% of chiropractors. QSM3 is the newest addition to the group of methods known as upper cervical chiropractic. Other upper cervical methods were focused on the misalignment of upper neck bones and the adjustment was given at the upper neck only.

Now, we still touch the upper neck, but look at the whole body not just the upper neck bone(s). Most upper cervical methods rely on X-rays to measure the misalignment and direct care.

QSM3 uses X-rays and relies on postural data (comparative leg length, weight imbalance, shoulder and hip position, head tilt) to direct care and the adjustment. QSM3 adjustments typically reach a depth of 2-4 mm—so very light. (link to web page)


There are many methods in chiropractic. The foundation of our office is Quantum Spinal Mechanics (QSM3). QSM3 evolved from another upper cervical method called NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association).

QSM3 doctors look to understand the breakdown of the whole body so that we can release and decompress the body into more balanced and stress free state. Our method does not push or set the vertebrae into a position.

A gentle touch is applied on the upper neck in specific ways to release the pathways of tension that hold the body in its stuck, misaligned state. A majority of people notice a lighter, looser feeling as QSM3 gets you “off your nerves.” It is a very different experience.
