Migraines and Your Spine
Your spine helps to protect your spinal cord. Your spinal cord carries signals to and from your brain. When the top bone in your neck (atlas) is misaligned, this can create pressure within your spinal cord. This can distort messages going to and from your brain, potentially leading to facial pain, muscle spasm, and other migraine symptoms.
Dr. Leach is trained in NUCCA, a specific chiropractic procedure aimed at detecting and reducing atlas misalignments. NUCCA involves a gentle chiropractic adjustment with no twisting, popping, or cracking. Through realigning the spine, the pressure in the spinal cord is reduced. This can potentially lead to a reduction of migraine symptoms.
Elster reported a study of a 35-year-old female who suffered from daily migraines and tension headaches for 12 years. Her symptoms were debilitating – she would often have nausea and vomiting. After 3 months of specific atlas care, her migraine symptoms were gone. (2)
