How Can Chiropractic Help Migraines in Southaven?
Migraine headaches often originate from misalignments in the upper neck that irritate the trigeminal nerve. This major nerve pathway transmits sensations from the face, head and neck to the brain. When irritated, it can trigger the throbbing head pain, light and sound sensitivity, nausea and other debilitating migraine symptoms.
Upper cervical chiropractors use precise adjustments to realign the top vertebrae in your neck, relieving pressure on the trigeminal nerve and associated blood vessels. Restoring normal nerve function and blood flow to the brain cuts off the migraine process at its source.
Over time, regular chiropractic care helps strengthen neck muscles, stabilize the spine’s alignment and keep migraines from recurring. Upper cervical adjustments are gentle and non-invasive, providing a safer alternative to migraine medications.

Migraine Relief Results from Desoto Upper Cervical Patients in Southaven
The individualized upper cervical care from Drs. Hall and Reistroffer has provided life-changing migraine relief to many grateful patients. Here are some examples of their success stories:
"I have now currently been seeing Dr. Reistroffer at Desoto Upper Cervical for almost a month and a half now. I started with them because I have had issues with excruciating neck pain with constant daily migraines and headaches with dizziness associated with it for about 5 years before coming to him. Before coming to him I actually thought I was going to have to give up my job because of the dizziness associated with my headaches because I am one of your local truck drivers. I have gone to almost all kind of doctors before him trying to find out why all of this started and how to get it stopped quickly. All the money I spent going to those other different physicians could have been saved a long time ago. After doing an x-ray with him, I found out that my ATLAS had shifted, which in turn put a lot of stress and pressure on my brain stem causing all the pain that I had going on. After just one treatment with him, immediately I started to feel like my old self again. Since I started these treatments, I have not had a headache nor neck pain at all for the duration of my time going here and all with no medication involved. My energy level has even changed. Not to mention that the environment is very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend to anyone who has exhausted all other options and give Desoto Upper Cervical a try, what do you have to lose except for daily unbearable pain that nobody wants to deal with. Dr. Reistroffer is the best."—LaChander Burnett
"I started going here for help with my back issues and migraines about 6 months ago. Dr. Reistroffer is the absolute BEST, and I could not be more grateful to him and the ladies in the office for all of their help. I have improved immensely, and my day to day is much more easily managed because of this group. They are absolutely AMAZING!!!!"—Amber Brawley
I HIGHLY recommend Desoto Upper Cervical. I started seeing Dr. Reistroffer 7 years ago for my migraines that I was getting 2 to 3 times a month. Now I’m able to go without my prescription medicine and very rarely even get a migraine. Dr. Reistroffer is very knowledgeable and listens. If changes are needed to your treatment, he makes them. The entire staff is very helpful and friendly! I can’t imagine going to any other Chiropractic office.—Lisa Keenum
Frequently Asked Questions About Upper Cervical Chiropractic for Migraines

How long until I start getting migraine relief?
Many patients notice a reduction in migraine frequency and severity within 1-2 months. Maximum benefits are seen after 3-6 months of regular care.
