Each Case of Atlas Subluxation is Different

While there is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question “how long will I see results after receiving neck bone adjustments from an Upper Cervical Chiropractor?”, understanding your condition better and the benefits of chiropractic care can help you set your expectations.

It's essential to keep in mind that every case of migraine is unique. While many migraine patients report throbbing head pain, sensitivity to light and sound, and nausea as common symptoms, the underlying causes and triggers can vary from person to person.

How your body responds to every adjustment can help your chiropractor identify where you're at and how many more adjustments are necessary. Some patients hold adjustments for long periods and only get to visit once in a while for maintenance.

Your Upper Cervical Chiropractor will also take into consideration the results of your imaging tests to understand your spine's alignment better and pinpoint areas that require attention. Follow-up scans will also be provided to help you see how well your body has improved after each adjustment. 

While there is no particular number of visits set, sometimes your body will respond and heal better and faster and won't require a lot of adjustments, but sometimes, you may need more than initially planned.

Why A Follow-Up Consultation With An Upper Cervical Chiropractic Doctor Is Necessary

Finding relief for your migraines may take time, and the number of adjustment sessions required may vary. However, by working closely with your Upper Cervical Chiropractor and committing to a comprehensive plan, you can significantly improve your chances of finding long-term relief from your migraine symptoms.
