WHAT YOU MIGHT BE EXPERIENCING:
Cervicocranial symptoms include vertigo (dizziness), cephalea (headache), tinnitus (ringing ears), facial pain, otalgia (earache), dysphagia (difficulty swallowing), pain of the carotid artery (neck area). A lot of people experience a dull, constant throbbing at the base of the skull. This condition may be worsened by movement of the head and neck. It is caused by subluxated (dysfunctional) vertebrae in the neck and/or misaligned cranial bones.
HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP?
Treatment consists of specific chiropractic adjustments to the area at the base of the skull, the neck, and/or upper back. The treatment may also require additional supportive therapy to improve a patients health, but it is case dependent. Additional supportive therapies include but are not limited to trigger point therapy, doctor-assisted stretching techniques, and postural training.
“I have never been in an accident or hurt so…WHY DOES IT HAPPEN?”
Trauma to the area can be both acute (as a result of car accidents, falls, and/or blows to the head) and chronic (sedentary work i.e. elmentary to post-graduate students, years of football practice, nursing or long-wearing such as holding baby in arms, etc.).
