Neck injuries are a very commonplace problem that can occur very easily. In fact, you may not even notice it has happened until you begin feeling pain. This may happen hours, days, or sometimes years later if the injury is not promptly cared for. How do injuries happen? Any of the following can be responsible:
- Playing any kind of sport
- Tripping over something and stumbling forward
- A car accident
- Falling down
- Accumulated injuries over time
While most of these injuries seem quite minor, they can cause major damage the longer they are allowed to go uncared for.
Migraines Related to Neck Injuries
An end result of not caring properly for minor neck injuries is migraines. These are not just really bad headaches but a neurological disorder that is very disabling. They can cause you to miss out on many of life’s activities if you have to cope with them. Often medication is taken to help ease the pain, but the truth is it just covers over the symptoms. It is much more important to address the underlying cause of migraines: the injury to your neck.
Caring for Neck Injuries Properly
Upper cervical chiropractors have been specifically trained to find and then correct these tiny neck misalignments. Can you believe it only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to wreak havoc on the entire body?
Here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, we use a method that is gentle and specifically tailored to each of our patients. The technique we use does not require us to pop or crack the bones of the spine or neck. Rather, we encourage them to move back into place on their own without force, leading to a longer-lasting adjustment. The body can then begin healing from the damage inflicted on the neck, and the end results of neck injuries, such as migraines, can begin to improve.
