The upside is that a study was conducted observing 100 patients who complained of having headaches. Each received an adjustment by an upper cervical chiropractor, and 90% of them reported seeing improvement. This is big news for those who deal with chronic headaches.

Why Upper Cervical Chiropractic Works on Headaches

Upper cervical chiropractic care focuses on the top two bones of the neck, the C1 and C2 vertebrae. If there is the slightest misalignment at this critical juncture, pressure can be exerted on the brainstem. Cerebrospinal fluid and blood flow to and from the brain can also be hindered. This may lead to a number of problems in the body, including headaches.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Vs General Chiropractic

An upper cervical chiropractor does not pop or crack the spine to move the bones back into place. Rather, he or she locates the specific area of the misalignment through a series of x-rays and then employs a gentle method to encourage the bones to move into alignment naturally.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Vs Headache Medication

When comparing this to the traditional way of caring for headaches – grabbing the nearest bottle of over-the-counter or prescription medications – upper cervical clearly comes out on top. Why is this the case? It does not carry any of the unwanted side effects of pain medication, such as:

  • Tingling sensations
  • Pain
  • Vertigo
  • Nausea
  • Weakness
  • Rebound headaches

Upper cervical chiropractic is natural care that is safe and side-effect-free. It is cost effective and should not cause the patient any pain. Unlike medications, the effects of a healthy spine are long lasting. By addressing the root cause of the problem, headaches often go away and stay away, alleviating the need for medication altogether.
