Last week, we looked at a few natural ways a person can fight the pain of migraines, which included a brief glimpse into a form of chiropractic that focuses on aligning the upper cervical vertebrae. We’ll look at a couple of other ways you can fight migraine pain, as well as we will also explain the benefits of this gentle and specific type of chiropractic more.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

Yes, we know it sounds cliché, but cliché can save you a lot of headaches. It’s important to know that living a healthy lifestyle is a lifestyle, even if it means changes your daily habits. You will want to get regular sleep, eat a balanced diet (a low blood sugar is very important), get six to eight hours of sleep a night, go to bed at the same time every night, and exercise everyday.

Don’t Stress Out

Your ability to manage your stress, anxiety, and depression well could mean the difference between a migraine attack and migraine relief. You can manage those things by meditating, talking a walk, doing yoga, or anything else that helps you relax.

Another Look at Upper Cervical

Though, we looked at this specific and gentle form of chiropractic last week, we are going to look at again. It can not only offer you relief from your headache and migraine pain, but it can also get to the source of your migraines. That’s because many times the source of your migraines is that misalignment in your upper cervical spine.

Of course, you may not be able to tell there is a misalignment in your upper neck, but an upper cervical chiropractor can tell. They can examine your upper cervical spine for any misalignments that may be the underlying cause of your migraine pain.
