Migraines and Neck Pain

I was referred to Dr. Roth, a Cervical Specialist Chiropractor after a riding accident in February 2010.  I had a mild concussion and had injured my neck pretty severely. I had been going to my regular chiropractor for five weeks after the accident and I was not getting any better.   Luckily my chiropractor realized it must be my cervical spine and she referred me to Dr. Roth.  Before treating me, Dr. Roth ordered x-rays of my neck that showed my C-1 vertebrae, also known as the Atlas vertebrae was shifted out of alignment.  It was sitting at an angle of 31 degrees, where it should have been 8-10 degrees.   This had been causing severe migraine headaches that were keeping me out of work for four days at a time, severe neck pain, and an inability to sleep due to the discomfort.  I was miserable and getting pretty depressed from dealing with all the pain.

Once Dr. Roth was able to review the x-rays and nerve scans he was able to do an adjustment.  That very evening I was able to finally move my neck without pain and I slept like a baby.  I have been in treatment with Dr. Roth for over a month now I have barely had any headaches.  I have not missed a day of work and I have been sleeping almost the entire night through every night. 

Before coming to Dr. Roth I was unaware of the specialty of cervical adjustment and how important it is for certain injuries.  I had been under the care of my other chiropractor for over ten years and had never heard of a cervical chiropractor.  Had I not been referred to Dr. Roth I would have lost countless days at work, been in constant pain and been spending money on treatments that wouldn’t have helped me.

Since being in the care of Dr. Roth I have done research on all the different diseases that can be caused from having your cervical vertebrae out of alignment.  It has been an eye-opening experience for sure.  I am most impressed with how fibromyalgia and MS can be treated through non-invasive chiropractic care instead of toxic prescription drugs and unnecessary surgeries.  I wish more people would realize that so many health problems we have can be healed through chiropractic care and lifestyle changes. 

I look forward to continuing my treatment with Dr. Roth knowing that I am now on the road to recovery and can see a light at the end of the tunnel.  My mood has completely changed since my neck has been getting better and my body has been able to start healing itself.
