Upper Cervical Chiropractic and Migraines Honolulu, Hawaii
A link has been seen between a misalignment in the upper cervical spine, particularly the C1 and C2 vertebrae, and migraines. These misalignments can occur due to car accidents, sporting injuries, trips and falls, physical abuse or trauma, birthing injuries, or another type of injury to the head and neck. A misalignment in this part of the neck causes the brain and the body to no longer communicate properly.
At Upper Cervical Hawaii, we use a gentle technique that encourages the bones of the neck to move back into alignment by means of a soft touch to a specific area. Once the bones realign, many patients, including those in case studies, have reported an overall decrease in migraine occurrence and severity. Some see them go away entirely.
