Migraines really sap your energy and leave you feeling exhausted and worn out. They are very common in today’s fast-paced world, leaving you with little time to recover from such a condition. A study observed 138 migraine patients to find out how migraines impacted their health and well-being overall. It was determined that those suffering from this condition also had the following even when they were not going through the ordeal of a migraine:
Lower sleep quality
Increased sensitivity to symptoms
More emotional problems to cope with
This shows just how serious migraines can impact your overall functionality. It appears that migraines impact every area of your life – physically, emotionally, financially, and socially. Is there anything that can be done to stop this from occurring?

Migraines Linked to Spinal Misalignments
There has been a connection established between migraines and a misaligned bone in the upper neck. The top bone of the neck, the atlas or C1 vertebra, is known for misaligning due to low-impact blows to the head or neck – car accidents, sporting injuries, or a simple trip and fall. If the atlas moves out of place, the brainstem is put under pressure, and it may send improper signals to the brain, leading to facial pain, muscle spasms, and additional migraine symptoms.
Here at Upper Cervical Chiropractic of Sacramento in Sacramento, California, we offer our patients a gentle yet effective way to care for migraines. The technique is precise and is personalized for each one of our patients. Rather than popping or cracking the spine, we employ a method that allows the bones to move back into place naturally. This reduces the pressure being placed on the spinal cord and helps restore proper communication throughout the body. This often leads to a reduction or even a resolution of migraines in as little as one or two adjustments.
