Migraines are an incredibly painful condition. However, for some migraine sufferers, the pain isn’t even the worst part. For those who experience migraines with aura, many symptoms can begin long before the headache itself, and there may be other symptoms that linger on for days afterward.
Unfortunately, when it comes to migraines, the doctors often pass the buck onto the pharmaceutical industry. These companies pump out drugs that attempt to cover over the symptoms of a migraine. However, such symptomatic treatment does nothing as far as preventing the next migraine from occurring. It also often only takes care of one or two symptoms of the migraine such as the headache or the dizziness. So the condition remains debilitating and is not helped on a long-term basis.

Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on a very specific misalignment of the atlas that can cause problems for the central nervous system. This is because the atlas is situated at the top of the spine where the brainstem meets the spinal cord.
When a person suffers a head or neck trauma, perhaps from something like a car accident or a sports injury, the atlas can easily misalign. When this occurs, it can affect the body’s internal communication system. Cerebrospinal fluid may fail to drain properly resulting in pooling. Blood flow to the brain could be obstructed leading to lower oxygen levels. Any of these factors can result in migraines.
Are you ready to become one of the many who have found that an adjustment to this part of the neck can provide long-term help for migraines? If so, schedule an examination to see if a misalignment has been the underlying cause of your migraine pain.
