Do you suffer from migraines? Migraine headaches can cause excruciating pain and other symptoms over an extended period of time. Migraine relief can be tough to come by as most medical treatments merely mitigate the symptoms and don’t even do that very well. On the other hand, upper cervical chiropractic offers the prospect of instant migraine relief. Does that sound too good to be true? Read on to learn how upper cervical chiropractic care can stop a migraine headache in its tracks.
First, it’s important to note that migraines seem to be caused in various ways, which may be why the medical field has had such trouble pinning down a specific cause. But one of the most common triggers for the onset of migraines is an injury to the neck or head. Whether the injury is caused by a sports accident, a car wreck, or even just poor posture, how can upper cervical chiropractic care help?
When an injury occurs to the C1 or C2 vertebrae causing one or both to become misaligned, it affects the entire central nervous system. This is because these two vertebrae that are at the top of the spine are positioned right at the brain stem. Thus, an injury to this area can cause all sorts of miscommunication within the body. Neurological conditions, such as migraine headaches, have been linked to such injuries.
Therefore, an adjustment that aligns these vertebrae properly can result in instant migraine relief. In fact, maintaining the alignment of these vertebrae can potentially keep migraines from recurring.
