Migraine medication is a quick fix. It certainly can give you some needed temporary relief. However, have you been searching for an alternative that can give you long-lasting relief? Do you have a history of neck or head trauma? Then we may have just the answer you are looking for.
The migraines you are suffering from may very well be related to an accident you experienced recently or even as far back as decades ago. There are many types of injuries that can cause damage to the neck and spine area. The most common of these is whiplash that can occur in a car accident when someone is hit from behind at only 5 mph.
Doesn’t it make sense then, that if an injury to the neck occurs at such a slow rate of speed, other injuries can cause issues also? Anything that causes the ligaments and muscles in the neck to stretch beyond their limits can cause damage. Such things as a fall, sports related injuries, physical fights or abuse, or many similar traumas can be to blame. The end result is a migraine headache. Why does this happen?

Cerebral Spinal Fluid
Dr. Raymond Damadian invented the MRI. He conducted much research using the upright MRI that reveals how a misalignment in the upper neck vertebrae changes the flow of CSF or cerebral spinal fluid. What does CFS do? It lubricates the spinal cord and helps communication run smoothly to and from the brain. If a misalignment is hindering the flow of CFS, the result is a malfunction in communication, and thus a migraine occurs. What can be done about this?
By consulting with upper cervical chiropractors, such as Dr. Ankur Tayal and Dr. Matthew Kittleson of the UC Life Chiropractic Centre in Victoria, British Columbia, you can begin the healing process. These chiropractors are specifically trained to detect a misalignment and then begin correcting it. In no time at all, you will begin feeling much better. Your CFS flow will return to normal, and it is more than likely that you will have a decrease in intensity and frequency of your migraines.
