No doubt about it, a migraine can be very debilitating. One in four households in American have a family member who suffers from migraines. Many will turn to medication to help with the pain. While medicine can help alleviate some pain during an attack, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to address the underlying cause and possibly eliminate future episodes? We will tell you just how to do that, but first, let’s look at some surprising facts about migraines. It is important to be aware of these if a person suffers from them.
As we mentioned earlier, addressing the underlying cause of migraines can help in the healing process. Upper cervical chiropractors focus their attention on the health of the vertebrae in the upper neck. If a misalignment is present here, it can be the reason for headaches. This is due to the pressure a misalignment puts on the brainstem, hindering blood and oxygen flow to and from the brain. Communication of the brain and body are also disrupted. All this leads to migraine headaches.
Once we correct these misalignments, many of our patients are pleased to report that their headaches have decreased in severity, and some have seen them disappear entirely.
