Migraine Treatment and Headache Relief
A part of the brain, the hypothalamus, receives migraine and headache triggers, and sends these signals to the brainstem. If there is a misalignment of atlas, the top bone in your neck, it can put indirect pressure on this delicate area.
From an upper cervical care perspective, one of the primary factors or causes of migraine and headaches is your body’s inability to adapt to some form of stress. The three forms of stress we encounter regularly are physical, chemical or emotional stress. Our work with patients focuses on removing physical stress to the upper neck.

Many patients tell us that they have suffered for years searching for effective migraine treatment and headache relief. They have already been to their primary care doctor and oftentimes a neurologist. They have taken every over-the-counter pill and prescription medication available and manage their symptoms as best possible year after year. Some experts report that up to 20% of the U.S. population experiences migraines. That’s 1 in 5 people, and migraines are 66% more common in women than in men.

I started seeing Dr. Young after being hospitalized with severe vertigo that was apparently a new symptom related to years of migraines.
After radiograph assessment, it was determined that I had several cervical spine subluxations that were causing compression and poor function of my nervous system in many ways.
With regular treatment from Dr. Young, I have started improving my quality of life and have increased range of motion and much less neck pain. My headaches are steadily decreasing in frequency and severity.
