This probably sounds too good to be true, however, extensive research has been done that proves that upper cervical chiropractic care can help headaches in ninety-two percent of those that suffer from them. This is done by non-invasive, natural means. How is this possible?
Miscommunication in the Body Creates HeadachesWe focus our attention on the top two bones of the vertebrae, the atlas and the axis. When these bones are not in proper alignment, even by one-quarter of a millimeter, they can have undesirable effects on the body and brain.
The brainstem is the communication highway of the body. It runs through the area where the atlas and axis lie. A misalignment in either of these bones hinders communication from being sent and received. This leads to changes in cerebrospinal fluid flow, nerve flow, and blood flow to and from the brain causing a number of symptoms throughout the body, one of which is headaches.

To correct this misalignment, we do not pop or twist the spine as general chiropractors do. Rather, we use a gentle, effective technique to give each individual patient a treatment tailored just for them. Nine out of ten patients seeking our care have reported improvement in the severity and frequency of headaches. When the pressure on the brainstem is relieved, blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow are restored to normal, and the body begins to heal itself naturally. This leads us to the conclusion that the Journal of the American Medical Association came to—headaches are not head pain, but actually a pain in the neck.
Why Is this Treatment Better than Others for Headaches?Upper cervical chiropractic is natural and non-invasive. Most medical doctors will suggest prescription or over-the-counter drugs. While these may help temporarily, they do not address the underlying cause as we do. These medications often come with harmful, unwanted side-effects, such as:
