Headaches and Migraines

Do you suffer from Headaches or Migraines?

Are you sick of taking medication to dull painful symptoms?

What if we could address and treat the cause of the problem?


While there are many lifestyle and environmental factors that can trigger a headache or migraine, 90% of the headache and migraine sufferers we see in this practice experience tension, muscle spasms and various secondary symptoms caused by ‘misalignment’ of the top two vertebrae in their neck; C1 and C2 also known as the atlas and axis.

A misalignment of the C1 vertebra (also know as the atlas) can manifest as secondary symptoms of:

  • Upper neck pain
  • Dizziness, loss of balance
  • Earache
  • Headache on the top of the skull
  • Nightmares
  • Insomnia
  • Increased anxiety or nervousness

A misalignment of the C2 vertebra (also know as the axis) can manifest as secondary symptoms of:

  • Eye pain
  • Pain above the eyebrow
  • Pain in the temple region
  • Pain at the back of the skull
  • Pain in the upper neck
  • Pain in the jaw (TMJ)
