Get to Know Our Upper Cervical Chiropractor

Dr. Kyle DePollarWhen it comes to treating athletes and providing sports chiropractic care, Dr. Kyle DePollar has always had a passion. He was a collegiate basketball player at Southern Vermont College, where he graduated with a BS in Biological Sciences and a Minor in Mathematics.

Inspired by his godfather, a chiropractor and Life University alumnus, Dr. DePollar decided to go to Life. In 2023, he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic (graduated summa cum laude) and Master of Sport Health Science.

Experiencing the Effects of Upper Cervical Care

Midway through his chiropractic school journey, Dr. DePollar experienced a life-altering car accident. The aftermath left him with severe concussion, intense pain, and debilitating brain fog. Seeking relief, he turned to his godfather’s office and received an upper cervical adjustment. The room brightened, the brain fog lifted, and a renewed sense of hope washed over him. This pivotal moment solidified Dr. DePollar’s decision to specialize in upper cervical chiropractic care.

Advancing His Knowledge

Driven by his personal experience and the desire to help others, Dr. DePollar pursued further knowledge in upper cervical chiropractic techniques. He enrolled in an upper cervical course taught by Dr. Matthew Sweat, the son of Dr. Roy Sweat, the founder of the Atlas Orthogonal (AO) technique. Here, he delved into the science behind upper cervical adjustments and learned about the instrument that administers precise forces to the Atlas vertebra.

Dr. Sweat offered him the opportunity to complete his preceptorship at his clinic. For three months, Dr. DePollar immersed himself in upper cervical chiropractic care, assisting in patient consultations, reading X-rays, and witnessing the life-changing effects of these specialized adjustments.

Patient Success Stories

After a thorough examination and adjustment, she experienced an overwhelming sense of relief. Tears streamed down her face as she expressed she hadn’t felt this good in months.

FDA-Regulated Instruments

Contrary to misconceptions, upper cervical chiropractic care is not merely based on anecdotal evidence. The Atlas orthogonal instruments used in these adjustments are regulated by the FDA. This ensures that the tables are calibrated accurately, delivering the precise amount of force needed for effective treatment.
