There’s often a lot of confusion about the best time to consult an upper cervical chiropractor. Should you wait until your chronic pains are debilitating? Or should you get chiropractic adjustments regularly to strengthen your spine? If you’ve ever asked such questions, you aren’t alone.

Signs that tell you it’s time to seek upper cervical care.

Frequent Headaches and Migraines

Pain in the head is caused by the contraction of muscles of the head and neck region. Migraines, however, start as aches that gradually develop into severe throbbing pain at one or both sides of the head.

Headaches and migraines are often caused by injuries strain, pressure, and misalignments in the upper cervical region. Unless the injury is addressed, the headaches and migraines will persist and reoccur.

Severe Joint and Muscle Pain 

Injury, old age, and inflammation are some of the major causes of joint pains. If you suffer from joint pain, you’ll likely experience swelling, intense pain in the affected region, redness, soreness and stiffness of the affected joints.

Chronic Back Pain 

If you spend long hours hunched over an electronic gadget, or driving long distances, there is a high chance that you’ll experience back pain.

Restricted Range of Motion 

If you feel pains whenever you move your neck and joint, then that’s a sign that you need to visit an upper cervical chiropractor. 

Being in an Accident

If you have recently been in a vehicular, domestic or sports-related accident of any kind, it is advisable that you see a chiropractor.

When accidents occur, victims usually sustain upper cervical trauma. Also, this injury and misalignment of the head and neck vertebrae can interfere with blood flow and nervous system function. 

Prior to the administration of upper cervical care, specific chiropractors conduct tests using digital x-rays and thermal imaging devices. Upon the diagnosis of an upper cervical injury, the specific chiropractor will administer precise adjustments and other kinds of care. This sets off a healing process in the body, restores the nervous system function and stops the irritation that’s causing the chronic pains.
