MIGRAINES AND UPPER CERVICAL CARE
The area of your spine that sits just beneath the base of your skull is known as the upper cervical spine. It is composed of two unique vertebrae, the atlas (C1) and axis (C2), that provide a layer of protection for the brainstem as it exits the bottom of your skull. Through injury, the atlas or axis can misalign, putting pressure on the brainstem and surrounding tissues. This negatively impacts neurological function, blood flow, and cerebrospinal fluid flow between the head and neck. Any one of these factors can contribute to the onset of migraine episodes.
Understanding that an upper cervical misalignment can create the conditions under which migraines can form, we address that area very specifically. Upper cervical chiropractic adjustments are gentle and precise. When properly aligned, pressure on nerves and proper blood and CSF flow can be returned to normal, which can lead to a reduction of migraine episodes.
