FAQs

What does an Upper Cervical Chiropractor do?

Upper Cervical Chiropractors restore proper head, neck, and spine alignment by performing a specific, precise, and gentle correction to the upper neck. Accidents and injuries tear loose the connective tissue that holds the spine in place, and this causes the spine to break down and lock into a stressed position. A misaligned spine frequently begins with a head or neck injury such as a motor vehicle crash, concussion, whiplash, slip or fall, sports injury, childhood injury or other trauma to the head and neck. The most common location for this type of misalignment to originate is the upper neck, otherwise known as the upper cervical spine. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care focuses on correcting misalignments in the upper neck region of your spine. This type of misalignment can lead to a variety of debilitating symptoms and conditions, including vertigo, Ménière’s disease, dizziness, migraines, headaches, fibromyalgia, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ, chronic neck pain, sciatica, low back pain, and many other conditions. Brooklyn Upper Cervical Chiropractic helps correct upper neck misalignments to remove pressure and irritation on structures, including the brainstem and cranial nerves, effectively allowing you to restore your body’s vitality.

What happens after an upper cervical adjustment?

Each specific and precise upper neck adjustment your Upper Cervical Chiropractic Doctor does is designed to ease the C1 and C2 bones back to their proper places and alignment. Patients have varying experiences with Knee Chiropractic in Brooklyn. Some enjoy immediate improvements, while others, especially those with severe cases of spinal misalignment, notice slight muscle stiffness that clears up in a few days. The goal of our care is to provide you with fast relief, maximum recovery, and long-lasting results.

How often should a chiropractor adjust your neck?/ How often should a chiropractor see you?

Each case of spinal misalignment is different. So, upper cervical care doctors custom-design an approach based on the needs of each patient. Depending on the severity of your spinal misalignment and nerve interference and how quickly you respond to care will determine your need for follow-up care. You may need to return for subsequent adjustments for several weeks or even months after the initial session to correct and stabilize a misaligned spine. Once a misaligned spine is stabilized, it is recommended that you maintain your spinal health through visits to your Upper Cervical Chiropractor in Brooklyn much the same way that you maintain the health of your teeth by seeing your dentist.

Why do chiropractors require so many visits?

A misaligned spine may have developed over many years or even decades. Multiple visits to a chiropractic office are necessary because the bones must gradually be eased back into their natural alignment. Brooklyn chiropractors use minimal force to realign C1 and C2 bones to prevent adding trauma to an already compressed or irritated brainstem, cranial nerves, and other structures. Also, it’s worth noting that chronic pain and other debilitating conditions don’t happen overnight. Hence, the healing process can also take time.

Migraine

What is the main cause of migraines?

Researchers have yet to uncover the exact mechanism behind every migraine episode. But, more and more evidence points to abnormal brain activities as the most likely culprit behind debilitating migraine attacks. But what leads to these abnormal brain activities? Frequently, the function of the brain is being impacted by misalignments in the upper neck. Accidents and injuries to the head and neck can lead to a displacement of the top 2 bones in the neck, which affects blood flow and cerebral spinal fluid flow to and from the brain. These changes can have a dramatic impact on the brain's function and can lead to a variety of problems, including migraine headaches.

How do I deal with migraines?

Upper Cervical Chiropractic is an extremely effective way to provide Brooklyn migraine relief, so you can take advantage of it each time you have an episode. We also recommend steering clear of your migraine triggers and taking preventive medications to abate the pain and discomfort you experience. The most important aspect of dealing with migraines is getting to the underlying cause. Often, upper neck misalignments are the underlying cause.

What happens if you ignore migraines?

Migraine attacks can worsen and set off several unpleasant symptoms like pulsating headaches, fatigue, nausea, vertigo, vomiting, visual aura, and odd food cravings. Such symptoms can easily drain the joy in your life and impact other aspects of your well-being. We strongly suggest investigating the underlying cause of your episodes and tapping into helpful remedies such as seeing a chiropractor for migraines in Brooklyn as soon as possible.

Vertigo

How can vertigo go away?

Vertigo attacks often indicate an underlying health problem. So, if you experience dizzying spells and spinning sensations, it’s a good idea to rule out the possible cause of your symptoms. This will help you determine the techniques or remedies for your situation. Some popular vertigo remedies include Upper Cervical Chiropractic in Brooklyn, The Epley Maneuver, and vestibular therapy.

What causes vertigo?

Spinning sensations can stem from various problems ranging from vestibular disorders like Meniere’s and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo to nervous system issues like head trauma, spinal tumor, and stroke.

When should you worry about vertigo?

Most vertigo attacks are non-life-threatening. However, it would help if you still looked out for red flags like facial paralysis, limb numbness, thunderclap headaches, and loss of consciousness. If you spot any of these symptoms, call 911 to receive urgent medical attention.
