Research has shown that 92% of people suffering with headaches have found relief with upper cervical chiropractic. Upper cervical chiropractic approaches such as upper cervical focus on correcting a small misalignment at the top of the neck where the brain and spinal cord come together.
Even medical doctors have looked to the neck for the source of headaches going all the way back to the 1950s. The Journal of the American Medical Association said:
“Headaches are not headaches at all but really a pain in the neck.”
So Why Is Most Headache Help Focused on Numbing the Head?
The most common form of headache treatment today is the use of prescription and over-the-counter drugs. Not only are these medications costly, but they also can cause numerous, negative side effects.
- Abnormal Sensations (tingling, burning)
- Dizziness (Vertigo)
- Neck, Jaw, and Throat Pain
- Abdominal Pain
Upper cervical Specialists have helped thousands of patients reduce the frequency and intensity of their headache symptoms. Because the upper cervical region of the neck (C1-C2) is more susceptible to injury than the rest of the spine, upper cervical Doctors have found a link between a misalignment of the upper neck area and chronic headaches. And they are able to gently and safely address this underlying problem.
So what are you waiting for?
Only a small group of doctors have been trained in this specialized procedure. Fortunately for you, several of those doctors are within your own community.
