Treating the Source of Migraine Pain: Stress
The hypothalamus is the part of the brain that receives migraine and headache triggers and sends these signals to the brainstem. If there is a misalignment of the atlas, the top bone in your neck, it can put indirect pressure on this delicate area, causing migraine symptoms.
From an upper cervical care perspective, one of the primary factors or causes of migraines is your body’s inability to adapt to some form of stress. The three forms of stress we encounter regularly are physical, chemical, and emotional stress.
NUCCA Spinal Care focuses on removing physical stress to the upper neck. Take a look in the mirror and ask yourself: Is my head on straight? Is one shoulder higher than the other? These postural distortions put a tremendous amount of stress on the upper neck and can contribute to migraine symptoms.
