Dr. Joseph Ibe is an upper cervical chiropractor who emphasized his studies in the upper cervical complex, specializing in a technique known as Blair Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic. He has received his education from the University of San Francisco (USF) where he earned a Bachelors of Science in Exercise and Sport Science and from Life Chiropractic College West where he received his doctorate in chiropractic. His sole objective is to create a community centered around a single fundamental premise – “true health comes from within”.
Upper cervical chiropractic is a specialty within the chiropractic profession in which the doctor focuses on the upper portion of the cervical or neck region, typically the top 2 bones, for subluxation. This region of the neck is of the utmost importance to the integrity of an individual’s nervous system because of its proximal relationship to the brainstem – the root from which all of the nerves in your body stem. This region is so important that anatomist have given these bones unique names – atlas and axis.
Atlas or C1 is the upper most neck bone and axis or C2 is the second upper most neck bone. They are uniquely different in size and shape when compared to the other 22 bones of the spinal column. They are the only two bones or vertebrae in the entire spinal column that do not have a intervertebral disc which leads to a greater range of motion in individual’s neck. In fact, the ability for humans to turn their head from left to right largely comes from a lack of the intervertebral disc in the atlas-axis region. On the other hand, a greater range of motion can also lead to misalignments of atlas and axis causing nerve interference.

I have experienced the results I was looking for in working with Dr. Ibe – less pain, better sleep, more energy, and I get sick less often. In addition to adjusting me, Dr. Ibe advises me on nutrition, exercise, supplements, and stress-management. He truly cares about his patients, and is wonderful to work with.
I’ve seen a huge improvement in my health since I’ve been under Dr. Ibe’s care. I feel more energized, healthy, and best of all – my vertigo and headaches are gone. This says a lot considering the fact that I would get an episode of vertigo at least once a year and I would get headaches every single day.
I have been to several different chiropractors over the years and Dr. Ibe has shown to be one of the most up to date informed doctors I have seen. He is knowledgeable and has a passion for his work. I definitely recommend True Health Centers for your chiropractic needs.
