Atlas Adjustments Causing Headaches

Hello all. I Am hoping to find another possible alternative treatment and would like some input from others who may have walked a similar path as me. for the past year i have been getting atlas vertebrae adjustments to help with my hip/ groin pain. unfortunately these adjustments just don't help like they used to. They do help relieve the hip/ groin pain but they cause headaches that have just become to unbearable. Tension like headaches that occur in the temple and ear area. the pain of the headaches just out match the hip pain. can anybody suggest a new type of therapy that could possibly help me? I will also give my back story to further improve my chances of finding the right treatment for me. the past two years I had been getting pain in the area of my left hip that follows the groin crease accompanied by waves of intense coccyx pain and monthly waves of horrible back pain  located over the kidneys. after months of confusion it was discovered that i had a co infection of Lyme disease called Mycoplasma. Currently i am on my 5th month of antibiotics and both the coccyx pain and the horrible back pain have decreased almost to the point where they are gone. sadly, the hip pain has not changed much and seems as though it is unrelated to the other problems i had been facing. my quality of life has improved dramatically however this hip/ groin pain gets to me . i also find it important to note that i had a groin hernia in this area in 2014, but the fact that the atlas adjustment help with the pain lead me to believe that its more of a structural issue than a repeated hernia. and ct scans and ultra sounds prove that the groin surgery was a success. any input would be greatly appreciated and if there are any questions i will gladly answer them.
