As a long time believer in chiropractic, I learned about Upper Cervical Chiropractic a few years back. I capitalize it because it is a very special subset of chiropractic. There are a few web sites that discuss this protocol.
I have not tried upper cervical chiropractic yet because the start up costs can be high. They take some very specialized x-rays prior to treatment. My previous insurance did not cover chiropractic.
Now that I am on Medicare Advantage, maybe insurance will cover it.
A physical therapist may be able to do some simple neck manipulations, but they do not have the special training that chiropractors have. I have been seen by a very good physical therapist but her upper cervical skills were minor compared to a good chiropractor, let alone a upper cervical specialist. .
