Hello! Dr. Bill Moss here from Keystone Specific Chiropractic Center. Today, I’m excited to share with you the role of upper cervical chiropractic in treating specific conditions, especially migraines, a condition I frequently encounter in my practice.
Unpacking Upper Cervical Chiropractic
My approach focuses on the upper cervical spine, also known as the craniocervical junction. This region, housing the top two vertebrae in the neck, is vital. It protects the brainstem and ensures that blood flow to the brain remains unrestricted. By aligning these vertebrae, I aim to promote overall health for my patients.
Upper Cervical Chiropractic and Migraines
Migraines aren’t ordinary headaches; they are debilitating, affecting millions worldwide. They’re even listed among the top 10 most disabling diseases by the World Health Organization.
Through my years of practice, I’ve found that upper cervical chiropractic care offers significant relief for migraine sufferers. Misalignment in the upper cervical spine can disrupt nerve function and blood flow to the brain, both potential triggers for migraines.
I would like to draw your attention to a 2015 study published in the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research. It documented a 52-year-old woman who had been suffering from migraines and neck pain. After receiving upper cervical chiropractic care, she experienced a dramatic decrease in the frequency and intensity of her migraines.
Moreover, a study published in the Journal of Chiropractic Medicine in 2018 demonstrated that 72% of migraine patients reported considerable improvement after receiving chiropractic care.
Why Choose Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care?
I advocate for upper cervical chiropractic care because it’s non-invasive and drug-free. By correcting the alignment of the upper cervical spine, we can alleviate potential triggers for migraines. Moreover, it fosters overall wellness and can help treat other conditions like vertigo and neck pain.
