Do you get migraine headaches? Upper cervical care may help.

If you already have migraine headaches, then you will understand how painful and damaging they can be. Pain isn’t the only thing you may experience—sensitivity to light or sound, waves of nausea, and even vomiting may occur. Some, may even experience numbness, tingling, or other visual impairments during the time of a migraine.

Migraines can be triggered by environmental allergies, such as drastic weather changes; indoor allergies such as animal dander and dust mites; cigarette smoke or other similar irritants; and even your diet.

Another possible cause of migraines can be the misalignment of the neck and upper spine. Your neck can be thrown off due to head or neck trauma, such as a car accident or sports injury, or even simply sleeping on it wrong. A misalignment of the neck can affect the movement of the brain, causing migraine headaches. When the brain stem malfunctions, it may cause the blood vessels to swell, which causes the migraine headache.

Upper Cervical chiropractors like Dr. Jean, can relieve the tension in the upper neck through a series of adjustments. Upper Cervical care is meant to restore the normal function to the brain and the nervous system, which may decrease the amount of migraines you have.
