Connection between neck pain and migraines in Boise

Migraines are intense headaches that can cause severe pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. While migraines have various triggers, neck pain is often an overlooked contributor. At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we focus on upper cervical care to address the underlying issues that may link neck pain to migraines.

Understanding Migraines

Migraines are a neurological condition characterized by recurrent headaches that can last for hours or even days. Common symptoms include:

  • Throbbing or pulsating pain, typically on one side of the head
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to light, sound, and smells
  • Visual disturbances, such as auras

The Connection Between Neck Pain and Migraines

The neck, particularly the upper cervical spine, plays a significant role in the body’s overall function. Misalignments in this area can lead to:

  1. Nervous System Interference: Misaligned vertebrae can compress nerves, contributing to headaches and migraines.
  2. Restricted Blood Flow: Misalignments can hinder blood flow to the brain, potentially triggering migraines.
  3. Muscle Tension: Neck pain often results from muscle tension, which can refer pain to the head, causing or exacerbating migraines.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

At Peak Chiropractic in Boise, we specialize in upper cervical chiropractic care, focusing on the alignment of the top two vertebrae in the spine. Our approach includes:

  1. Precise Adjustments: Gentle, targeted adjustments to correct misalignments in the upper cervical spine.
  2. Holistic Treatment Plans: Comprehensive care plans that address lifestyle factors and aim to prevent migraines.
  3. Advanced Diagnostics: Utilizing advanced imaging to accurately assess and monitor the alignment of the upper cervical spine.

Patient Experiences

Patients at Peak Chiropractic in Boise have found significant relief from migraines through upper cervical care. For example, one patient reported a dramatic reduction in migraine frequency and intensity after receiving upper cervical adjustments.

I now no longer have daily migraines. Drs. Jon and Kyara truly want to help you get back on your feet and are ready to help you.
Dr. Jon and Dr. Kyara have helped give me life back! I have been suffering from severe migraines since I was in Elementary school and tried many different remedies. I have had many doctors tell me there was nothing wrong or prescribe different medications and send me on my way. Peak Chiropractic takes time to listen to me and explain what is going on. They look at the whole picture and go to the root. After my first adjustment it felt like a breath of fresh air. I felt energized again and slept so much better than I had in such a long time. I now no longer have daily migraines. Jon and Kyara truly want to help you get back on your feet and are ready to help you. They are truly amazing and do amazing work.

My son has had one headache in 4 months. One! And his sensory issues are not even a thing anymore.
Dr. Jon and Kyara are amazing!!! I lived with severe neck and shoulder pain for 5 years, trying everything you can think of for relief. Nothing helped. One day I saw a video on Instagram that just spoke to me. It was everything I was experiencing. The videos are so informative. I called that day and set an appointment. Kyara asked me before my first adjustment if I was ready for the first day of my new life and in my mind I truly wasn’t convinced that it was going to be as magical as it has been. I’ve been there and tried that so I was hopeful but not 100% convinced. She was right, it was the first day of my new life. My pain is nothing like it was, it used to be all I could think about. I’m not perfect yet but I’m on my way there. Peak Chiropractic has changed my life. Best decision I have ever made for myself. My son (13) got a scan for frequent headaches and sensory issues. Dr. Jon had me bring him in for a scan and again was hopeful but not fully convinced and once again they were right. My son has had one headache in 4 months. One! And his sensory issues are not even a thing anymore. It has been amazing for him and I’m so grateful he is getting treatment as well. On top of all the goodness we have had since starting we also feel cared for by both Dr. Jon and Kyara. They feel like family and care about us. Kyara is also super into all around health and I am always learning things from her each time I go. Definitely life changing all the way around and I highly recommend checking them out. You will not be disappointed!

Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me.
Peak has been a game changer for me. I have struggled with migraines for years. After a lot different trial and errors I found Peak and now I can say I have found a solution. Dr Jon and Dr Kyara listened to me, heard me, empathized with me, and helped me. They were super flexible and understanding with my busy schedule. I am more than grateful not be losing a day a week to migraines. I am excited to continue seeing them and experience even more health benefits.
