Ignorance is not Bliss

Often times, the medical community relies on archaic methods to support their ignorance of conditions that the chiropractic community has been aware of for many years. They often cannot explain the underlying cause of the simplest conditions including migraines.

On April 6, 2013, at the “Cranio-Cervical Syndrome: The Vulnerability of the Human Neck and Its Impact on Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) Flow,”  medical experts discussed the impact of this syndrome on 1.2 million of patients throughout the U.S.. Those people continue to suffer either because of inadequate diagnoses of their condition within the medical community or effective treatments for their conditions.

On Noticing Migraines

Among those conditions that medical experts cannot identify the source of are migraines. They’ve just come to notice the existence of an Atlas Subluxation, so it can’t be expected for them to notice the impact of this condition on a person’s health right away.

While the medical community has just recently begun to notice the existence of this condition, upper cervical chiropractors have been caring for patients who suffer from migraines due to this condition for many years. The truth is that they’ve been caring for patients with Cranio-Cervical Syndrome for the last 80 years, but they call it Atlas Subluxation Complex Syndrome instead of Cranio-Cervical Syndrome.

Catching up to Chiropractic

Of course, like most other things, the medical community is finally catching up to what chiropractors have know for the last several decades. That’s because often times medical doctors are so focused on diagnosing symptoms and then prescribing medication to cover those symptoms, that the underlying cause of those conditions goes unnoticed.

If you suffer from migraines, you can go to a medical doctor, but they’re still behind. It’s taken them 80 years to notices what’s been obvious in the chiropractic community for many years. Or you can allow an upper cervical chiropractor to examine the top two vertebrae in your neck. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter in those two vertebrae can place enough pressure on the brainstem to hinder the brain’s ability to communicate with the body, and that miscommunication can lead to various health complications.
