Welcome to Restorative Chiropractic Health Center.  We are a family practice serving our Charlotte community.  Our practice philosophy is focused around taking the time to get to know our patients and understanding their specific healthcare needs.

Dr. Arthur Plesa is a Chiropractic physician who specializes in Upper Cervical Chiropractic Healthcare.  This specialized care aids the body in restoring it's natural healing ability to recover from chronic health problems and pain, without drugs or surgery.  Upper Cervical Chiropractic is completely safe and effective for people of all ages, especially pediatrics.

Dr. Arthur Plesa is one of 1200 Upper Cervical chiropractors in the world.  He is proud to provide this specialized type of care to the Charlotte community.  Dr. Plesa is also the only chiropractor in the University area of Charlotte that uses the latest in digital, infrared spinal thermography.  This technology is used to take hundreds of infrared, thermal images along the cervical (neck) spine.  It gives the doctor an objective test to determine if the spine is in alignment and how severe the misalignment is.  Digital, infrared spinal thermography is safe, pain-free, non-invasive and is approved by the FDA.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Healthcare is truly unique in that the objective is to get the spine to maintain in alignment with the least amount of adjustments.  It focuses on correcting the major misalignment in the upper spine which affects the balance of the entire spine and pelvis.  It is not the amount of adjustments that helps the body restore it's natural healing ability; rather, it is the amount of time that your spine stays in alignment that is used to restart the natural healing process.

Since every part of the body is connected to the spinal nerve system, a misalignment in the upper spine has to potential of negatively affecting the healthy function of the entire body system.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic is unique because it is the only specialty that actually restores the body's natural healing ability.  Medications and even other natural remedies are only considered treatments for the symptoms of a misaligned upper spine.  While they can make you temporarily feel better, they will never correct the cause of the symptoms.

I have been under care with Dr. Plesa for a little over 4 months.  I was referred to Dr. Plesa by my golfing buddy because he got great results with high blood pressure.  I have been on medication for heart disease for over 12 years now.  I was diagnosed with hypertension when I was 52.

My medical doctor told me that if I changed my diet and exercised more that I would be able to get off of the medication.  After 3 intensive months of cutting back on fast foods and starting jogging every night, I went back to my MD and he told me that nothing had changed, and that I still had to stay on my medications...

When I met Dr Plesa, he was very professional, listened to what I had to say, and gave me what no other doctor could: hope.  He took an x-ray of my neck and showed me that I had a misaligned vertebra in my upper neck that was causing pressure on nerves that control my heart function.  For the first time in 12 years, a doctor was able to tell me what was causing my high blood pressure.  Within the first month of care, I noticed a drop in my blood pressure, from 165 systolic down to 148, and it remained fairly constant.  

After about 4 months of care with Dr Plesa, he recommended that I go back to my MD and have another evaluation done.  I was surprised to hear that my MD told me that my tests came back negative- I was no longer a high blood pressure case!  As a result my MD took me off my medications.

I have seen chiropractors on and off for most of my life.  They are great doctors and love the service that they offer.  I especially love this unique type of chiropractic- Upper Cervical Care and would definitely recommend Dr Plesa for anyone in the Charlotte, NC area.
