The Link Between Migraine, Hypertension and Your Neck

Hypertension, Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic

Hypertension and migraines seem to occur together. As a result, many patients seeking Redwood City upper cervical chiropractic care wonders if there’s a connection between the two. Studies note that the relationship between migraines and hypertension is quite complex. And unfortunately, when they frequently occur together, you can suffer from severe effects on your overall well-being. 

For example, they can prevent you from working on your everyday tasks at home or work and cause anxiety, frustration, stress, and depression. That’s why it's crucial to trace what links the two and how maintaining proper neck structure holds the key to lasting relief.


Migraine, Hypertension and Neck Health – What Connects Them?

There is a link between hypertension and migraines. However, studies have yet to unravel why they often occur together. So far, here are some of the explanations from various research papers:

  • Evidence suggests that poor blood pressure control can potentially worsen the severity and frequency of a migraine episode.
  • Migraines can trigger hypertension as a part of the body’s autonomic response to the pain caused by the headaches and other symptoms.
  • Hypertension can cause pressure buildup inside the skull, which can aggravate or trigger migraine pain.  

Besides these findings, additional studies show that cervical instability appears to have a solid link to the development of cardiovascular problems like hypertension and migraine attacks. 

According to a study, cervical posture problems disrupt the transmission of signals to and from the brain and heart. This can lead to palpitations, tremors, and poor regulation of blood pressure and heart rate. 

Meanwhile, case studies on upper cervical care prove that cervical misalignment can trigger migraine problems. The problem primarily develops because of the pressure on the brainstem, a vital component of the nervous system which controls various functions.
