Upper Cervical Chiropractor in San Diego Drs. Dawn & Payton Ely

What We Do

We have a wide variety of services for neck pain, lower back pain, sciatica, headaches and much more!  We specialize in a gentle and precise Upper Cervical chiropractic technique known as Orthospinology Upper Cervical also known as NUCCA, Grostic or Advanced Orthogonal. Both practicing Doctors have completed Level 2 Advanced Orthospinology certifications.  Our San Diego Chiropractors fully understand that although patients may be diagnosed with similar conditions their bodies respond very differently to various treatments.  For this reason we develop a specific plan and tailor it to meet patient needs, goals and unique health conditions.  At FFC we correct spinal misalignments to restore normal functioning to the nervous system, enabling your body to heal naturally.

Our Service Commitment

We pride ourselves in not only getting the best results but ensuring services remain affordable for all. We have been told by many that our prices are the best they have encountered. We will not over charge or extend treatment any longer than necessary.  Our success is living proof of our approach — to take care of patients, the way we would our own family.  We are in-network with Medicare and accept most insurance plans. For those that opt not to go through insurance we have very affordable cash rates.

At Family First Chiropractic, we use the latest technology
and the upper cervical technique to treat many conditions including the conditions below.
