Welcome to the ICA Council on Upper Cervical Care

The Council on Upper Cervical Care is one of the specialty councils of the International Chiropractors Association. It is a professional forum designed to advance expertise in the analysis and care of the upper cervical spine and to be a voice for upper cervical chiropractic in research, education, clinical and policy-making environments. To this end it offers a post-doctoral program in upper cervical care leading to a Diplomate in Chiropractic Craniocervical Junction Procedures (DCCJP). By building a strong network of upper cervical professionals, the Council seeks to promote unity within the articular- and orthogonal- based procedure groups to increase chiropractic’s impact on public health, advance research and be a solid resource for information on upper cervical care.
