Chiropractic care for headaches can be a very effective solution. To understand why, we must first look at what causes headaches, dizziness and vertigo? Well Chiropractors analyze the spine, and we’re looking for nerve interference.
The upper two bones in the neck, called atlas and axis, are where the nerves exit your spine travel up into the head region. When these bones slip out of position, the head which weighs 10-12 pounds will tip over and cause nerve impingement. That nerve impingement can cause headaches, it can cause dizziness, and it can cause vertigo.
Restoring the correct alignment of the upper spine and head helps relieve the pressure on these nerves and therefore address the source of the problem.
