He has taken the pledge, “To the best of my ability, I agree to provide my patients convenient, affordable, and mainstream Chiropractic care. I will not use unnecessary long-term treatment plans and/or therapies.” Dr. Truong has been a Los Angeles upper cervical chiropractor exclusively for almost 14 years. Over those years, he’s delivered over 270,000 individual chiropractic adjustments. Upper cervical chiropractic is a specialty within chiropractic which deals with the most vital part of the nervous system and that is your brain stem. The brain stem allows the brain to effectively connect with the body and helps to control all of its life giving functions. When this communication process is interfered with, pain-suffering and poor health develops.

IN THIS EPISODE:
What is Upper Cervical Chiropractic?
If you can imagine a power cord running from a generator to the things that it supplies power to, then you’ve got a pretty good idea of how the spinal column runs from the brain into the rest of the body through the neck. At the base of the skull is the C1 or Atlas vertebra. It’s the very first of the vertebra that the spinal column moves through. If the Atlas is misaligned any number of symptoms can occur. On this episode Dr. Truong shares many stories of the conditions he sees regularly and how Upper Cervical Chiropractic makes a tremendous difference.
The Atlas is one of the most commonly misaligned vertebra in the entire spine and is also the most neglected in terms of regular chiropractic adjustment. That’s because typical chiropractic treatments literally can’t touch the Atlas in a way that moves it as needed. It takes someone like Dr. Johnny Truong, a specially trained Upper Cervical Chiropractic doctor to adjust it in a way that really matters. You’ll be amazed at some of the stories Dr. Truong shares about how his Upper Cervical techniques have brought healing and relief to his patients. Be sure you listen.
In case you didn’t know it, I have had back and neck issues for much of my adult life. My career as a professional golfer in combination with a terrible accident have caused serious issues in my neck, the area Dr. Johnny Truong specializes in treating. I had gone to chiropractors my entire career and never received the relief I was seeking. I eventually visited Dr. Truong because of vertigo that was plaguing me and within a few treatments my vertigo was gone and the pain I’d had chronically for years was diminishing.
If you haven’t heard of the Upper Cervical approach to chiropractic treatment, you owe it to yourself to hear the stories of how Dr. Truong has been able to help thousands of people. You’ll come away inspired, but more so, you’ll receive some excellent advice about how you can become more aware of your own posture to prevent injuries and upper cervical issues.
Near the end of my conversation with Dr. Truong he generously offers to see any of my podcast listeners for an initial consultation for free and also offers to give you a discount on your first Upper Cervical chiropractic treatment. He’s a lifesaver to me and I can’t recommend him highly enough. Dr. Truong is the old fashioned kind of doctor who truly cares and takes the time to find out what’s really wrong so he can treat your condition properly. You won’t be disappointed.
