Get Rid of Chronic headaches by fixing upper cervical dysfunction.

Headaches Come From the Neck?

Upper cervical (neck) dysfunction, involving misalignment or restricted motion of the C1 and C2 vertebrae in the neck This is closely linked to chronic headaches. Research has found these vertebrae are pivotal in supporting the head and facilitating critical movement when restricted irritated maxillary and frontal cranial nerves may be facilitated (irritated). When this malfunction happens due to injury, poor posture, or repetitive strain, it can cause pain at the base of skull, temples, forehead, and sometimes the jaw! The upper cervical spine also houses the vertebral arteries, crucial for brain blood supply. Pressure on these vessels can impede blood flow through the vertebral arteries, further triggering headaches by depriving the brain of essential oxygen and nutrients.

Muscle tension and inflammation around the upper cervical spine exacerbate this dysfunction, intensifying headache symptoms. Addressing these issues typically involves chiropractic adjustments, muscle therapy, posture correction, and lifestyle changes to restore proper alignment and movement. By treating the root causes of upper cervical dysfunction, many individuals can find relief from chronic headaches and improve their overall well-being.
