A Deeper Look at Headaches and Migraines

Posted in Head Pain Disorders on Apr 23, 2017

Migraines and headaches do not discriminate. They affect all types of people worldwide. It is estimated that nearly 50% of people have some kind of a headache or a migraine condition. This can cause a person suffering much frustration when it comes to finding a solution.

Headaches are different for each person and finding a way to relieve the pain can be an uphill battle. Many medications and options are available, but they do not work for everyone. It can be a long road of trial and error to find the correct one.

While no one knows exactly why headaches and migraines occur, they do know how. One thing that may be involved is a problem with the brainstem due to a misalignment in the C1 and C2 vertebrae. These bones can easily become misaligned by even a mild head or neck trauma. This can lead to:

Where to Find Migraine and Headache Relief in North Lakes, Queensland

One may be able to find some headache relief by visiting an upper cervical chiropractor. At Atlas Health Australia, we have been extensively trained in properly realigning the C1 and C2 vertebrae.

We use a specialized technique that helps these bones to move back into their proper position without “cracking” the spine or neck like a general chiropractor. Instead, we use a low force correction that encourages the bones to realign naturally.

Numerous case studies have shown the efficacy of upper cervical chiropractic when it comes to relieving headaches. One compilation of such headache case studies revealed that as much as 85% of people who received upper cervical care saw significant relief from headache pain in as little as one month.

After an upper cervical subluxation is corrected, the pressure being exerted on the brainstem is removed, and blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow can be regulated properly. Once the body is back to functioning correctly, many see a decrease in headache symptoms or a remission of them altogether.
