Now that you can identify the difference between these two conditions, is there a way to find relief from the pain without reaching for a bottle of pills?
Upper cervical chiropractic care has been helping many migraine and headache patients in case studies. This is because many of these conditions go back to a misalignment of the atlas (C1) or axis (C2) vertebrae. Such a misalignment can affect blood flow to the brain, cerebrospinal fluid drainage, brainstem function, and many other factors that are related to head pain and other symptoms.
If you’ve experienced head or neck trauma in the past, you are more likely to have a subluxation in the C1 or C2. However, even if you don’t remember such an injury, it is worth having an examination if you are dealing with a chronic headache condition. You may be a gentle adjustment away from finding natural relief.
