It has been noted by the Journal of the American Medical Association that headaches, rather than being a pain in the head, are actually a pain in the neck. However, most doctors focus on giving prescription medication that works to numb the head. Some of these medications are Imitrex, Maxalt, Zomig, and Relpax. They all come with dangerous, unwanted side-effects. Some of the side-effects common among these medications are tingling, burning, dizziness or vertigo, feeling weak, having pain in the jaw, neck, or throat, nausea, and abdominal pain. What if there was a natural treatment that really worked?

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Can Help

At Precision Chiropractic West, we focus on finding the underlying cause of our patients’ migraines. Often, it has to do with a misalignment in either the C1 or C2 vertebrae of the upper neck. This area is more susceptible to injury than other areas of the spine.

A connection has been found between misalignments of the upper neck and headaches and migraines. We are able to work with our patients to correct this misalignment by a gentle, effective method. One reason for migraine headaches has to do with blood flow to and from the brain. Research has revealed that migraine patients have less blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid flow to the brain. MRIs taken after upper cervical care show that proper flow of these fluids is restored. Patients report improvement in migraines and headaches at this point. This means, not only is the patient feeling better, but the underlying cause is actually reversed. Many patients report complete remission of migraine symptoms.
