Handling Headaches with Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Edmonton

I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone who NEVER had a headache. At some point in a person’s life, they’re bound to have a headache for one reason or another; nobody is completely immune to dehydration, flu, or stress to name a few common causes. Some headaches are worse than others and can interfere with even the most simple of daily activities.

By and large, the most commonly used remedy for headaches is some type of over-the-counter painkiller. Usually, it’s “take two” followed by lying down for a nap in a dark room. If the headaches are more severe, perhaps prescription medications would be recommended. For headache sufferers concerned about the use or side effects of these medications, especially when used long-term, you’ll be glad to know that there is a natural option that has had great results with many headache types.

Upper cervical chiropractic is concerned with the normal alignment of the top two vertebrae in the neck that sit just beneath the skull. This area of the spine can be important to examine in headache patients for many reasons, most important of which are neurological function and blood flow. At Providence Chiropractic, we work with people with all types of headaches, from the occasional tension headache to the most debilitating migraines. Each patient undergoes a thorough analysis to determine if a misalignment of the upper cervical spine is at the root of your headaches and, if so, our analysis tells us how to correct it for each individual.

Our NUCCA adjustments are extremely gentle, and restore normal alignment to the spine. This allows for blood flow and nervous system function to return to normal, alleviating headaches in many cases. If you are suffering from headaches, perhaps it’s time for an evaluation to see if upper cervical chiropractic is the answer you have been looking for.
