Migraines and the Upper Neck

Often, migraines can be caused by a misalignment in one of the top two bones of the vertebrae, the atlas or axis bones. If a misalignment is in this area, blood flow and cerebrospinal fluid flow can be hindered from going to and exiting the brain. Nerve function can also be compromised.

The body begins its natural healing process, and most see a reduction in severity and occurrence of migraines.
