A New Treatment for Chronic Headaches

A new specialized treatment for chronic headaches

Do you have chronic headaches? Are you wondering if your headaches, migraines, or vertigo are being caused by an injury to your neck? You might be right.


How a neck injury can cause your headaches

Headaches can be caused by a misalignment or an injury at the top of the neck. Your neck is made up of bones (vertebrae), discs, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. The most important of the 7 vertebrae is the one at the very top, known as the atlas. The atlas is the most important bone because it protects your brain stem and all major blood vessels to the brain. When the atlas bone is misaligned, or there is an injury at the top of your neck, it can create a big problem. As a result, symptoms of this injury may include neck pain, headaches, migraines, dizziness, vertigo, blurry vision, brain fog, and more. If you are experiencing one or more of these conditions, we may be able to help you get relief and solve your problem.


How you can solve this problem

To solve the problem at the top of your neck, you must receive specialized treatment from an upper cervical spine doctor. Atlas orthogonal doctors are specialized chiropractors who have been trained beyond the standard chiropractic school curriculum to learn about the upper cervical spine, also known as the craniocervical junction. This part of your neck is the most important to keep in alignment, and it requires a skilled specialist to appropriately do so. Dr. Katie Gross and Dr. Nor Jobarah have both gone through extensive coursework to bring you the best results relief from neck pain, headaches, migraines, dizziness, vertigo, blurry vision, and brain fog, by precisely analyzing and aligning the atlas bone.


Find out if this is the right treatment for you

Not sure if you have an atlas misalignment? You probably do. Just think about all the times you’ve fallen on the playground as a kid, bumped your head, etc. It can also be caused by chronic micro-traumas, or things that you do constantly for many hours a day. Examples of this, and other things that may lead to a problem at the top of your neck, include: 

  • Car accidents

    • …no matter how minor you think

  • Sports injuries

    • …especially in contact sports

  • Hunching over

    • …or sitting for long periods of time

  • Hitting your head

    • …even if just a bump on your car door

  • Falls at home or work

    • …even if you don’t hit your head

  • Looking down often

    • …also known as “text neck”
