Real Relief from Migraines
Regardless of how you did on the quiz, if you experience migraines, you deserve the best care available. Upper cervical chiropractors are helping people with migraines by gently restoring the correct position of the atlas (C1 vertebra).

As a result, correcting the misalignment is often the first step toward experiencing fewer or less severe migraines. Some have even found complete relief.
