Migraine Headaches LA - Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

An important connection has been made by the Blair Upper Cervical Chiropractic Group that shows how trauma to the head and/or neck can lead to vertigo and migraine headaches. Further research using an MRI revealed conclusive evidence of the number of problems throughout the body that can be caused by a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae.

An example cited is of a female patient, age 54, having migraines once or twice a week. She also had vertigo and chronic pain in her neck that had bothered her for the last 10 years. Before that, she had been in a car accident. She began receiving upper cervical chiropractic care and got 3 adjustments to her upper neck over a period of 12 weeks. She had only one migraine occur two weeks after her first adjustment. After that, she had no neck pain, vertigo, nor any migraines.

What Did the MRI Reveal About Migraines?

Dr. R. Damadian invented the MRI. He used the upright MRI machine to show how a misalignment located in the upper cervical vertebrae (specifically, the top two bones of the neck) can actually alter the flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid to and from the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid lubricates the spinal cord and brain and keeps things functioning properly. If this fluid becomes disrupted, a number of complications throughout the body can arise.


The upper cervical spine, if misaligned, has a huge impact on intracranial pressure if cerebrospinal fluid becomes backed up. This pressure can be decreased by as much as 28.6% by correcting this misalignment. How is this done? By consulting a professional who has experience with realigning the vertebrae of the neck. Upper cervical chiropractors have been specially trained to find and correct upper neck misalignments. Once this is done, it often helps a person to experience fewer migraine headaches. Some have seen them go away entirely, as in the above-mentioned experience.
