Upper Cervical Chiropractic
Neurologically-Based Chiropractic Care
At Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Boulder, we utilize the most specific form of chiropractic care with our Blair Method Upper Cervical technique. This technique focuses on removing the interference in the upper part of the neck where the brain stem sits, with one simple adjustment. This technique is done without the use of twisting, popping or cracking in the neck.
While there are more than 65,000 chiropractors in the world, less than .03% have the specialized training and education to provide the Upper Cervical Care you will experience at UCC Boulder.
Upper Cervical Anatomy & Neurology
In upper cervical care, we give special attention to C1 and C2 the most because this is right where your autonomic control center is located. Your autonomic nervous system controls functions like thermoregulation, breathing, heart rate and blood pressure, sleep/wake cycles, digestion, balance and coordination, etc.. This also acts as a gateway for every other nerve in your body as it passes through this junction moving from the brain to the body.
Conditions We Treat
Dr. Christina Coblish
Dr. Coblish is a Boulder chiropractor that specializes in the upper cervical spine, focusing on gentle approaches to address this sensitive area. In middle school she was diagnosed with curvatures in her spine, which she addressed and corrected through full spine chiropractic care. Through chiropractic she was able to avoid medical intervention at a young age. It was during this time that she established the beginning of her chiropractic career.
She graduated in just three years from Sonoma State University with her BA in Psychology with a focus in Biopsychology. She went on to receive her Doctorate in Chiropractic shortly after this time at Life Chiropractic College West in the SF Bay Area. Although she personally received life changing results with full spine care as a child, she knew her focus would be in Upper Cervical Care after experiencing it herself and she dedicated her focus specializing, analyzing, and correcting the sensitive areas of the upper cervical spine. Dr. Coblish practices Blair Upper Cervical technique.
Dr. Ryan Moeskau
Dr. Ryan is a Bemidji, Minnesota native. He was born in Bemidji, graduated at Bemidji High School, got his B.S. in Biology at Bemidji State University (Go Beavers!) in 2014, and went off to Lifewest Chiropractic College for his doctorate in Chiropractic. He more recently moved to Colorado and has joined forces with Dr. Coblish bringing his upper cervical specialties to the table to provide a more diverse offering for this practice! Dr. Ryan practices both Knee Chest and Blair Upper Cervical techniques.
During grad school, he spent most of his time specializing in the upper cervical spine realizing that the first two bones in your neck are the key to allowing your body to heal itself with its own innate intelligence.

Our Healthcare Philosophy
Upper Cervical Chiropractic is known for it’s “Above Down, Inside Out “(A.D.I.O.) philosophy – a healthcare philosophy that recognizes that all processes in the body are carried out by the brain sending signals down to the body; these signals must be free flowing, without interference, in order for the body to respond appropriately.
By keeping the nervous system free of neurological interference in the spine, the body will do what it is specifically designed and equipped to do: to heal, regenerate, and function without the use of outside additions.
In our office, our purpose is to help you achieve your health goals with as few adjustments as possible, teaching your body to hold your adjustments over time.
