Those suffering from migraines are always on the lookout for the latest research about how to cope with the pain this debilitating condition brings with it. Recently, the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences in Colorado followed 121 patients who used medical marijuana to care for migraine symptoms over a 4-year period. The results?

Many patients saw a decrease in their head pain. While seemingly good news, one must remember that marijuana is still a drug and comes with unwanted side effects. It may mask the symptoms of a head pain, but it is not addressing the root cause and, therefore, migraines will continue to occur.

Migraines have been said to be the world’s most common neurological disorder. They are much worse that a mild headache and can be extremely debilitating. They are known for:

The process behind why migraines occur remains a mystery among the medical community making head pain hard to find a solution for. Many people are looking for natural migraine care but are unsure what to try next.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Helps Migraines

One successful area of natural, drug-free care comes from upper cervical chiropractors, a special form of chiropractic focusing on the bones of the upper neck, the C1 and C2 vertebrae. It has been suggested that a misalignment in these bones often leads to migraine headaches.

A misalignment of this sort negatively affects the muscles and nerves of the neck. It can also put stress on the brainstem causing the signals being sent between the brain and body to be disrupted. This is often what creates the right environment for a head pain to occur.

Here at Premier Family Wellness and Spinal Care, we use a special type of care involving a low force adjustment to a specific part of the neck in accord with where the misalignment lies.

This encourages the bones to move back into place naturally without forcing or popping the neck and is often all that is needed to see a decrease in migraines or an elimination of them entirely, perhaps in as few as one or two visits.
