If you or a loved one suffer from migraine headaches, then you know the excruciating pain that can result from this neurological condition. Most people who suffer from migraines have sought help to control the condition, but many are disappointed with the effectiveness of the treatments they have received.
This is because the medications prescribed for migraines only treat the symptoms of migraines instead of stopping the migraines from occurring. The medications used are primarily meant for treating things like depression, seizures, and high blood pressure.
Some migraine sufferers have found a natural solution to help reduce the number of migraines that they experience as well as the severity of the ones that do occur. Upper cervical chiropractic is a solution that helps the body to heal itself. Adjustments to the C1 and C2 vertebrae have been known to be a successful natural solution for a large number of health challenges including migraine headaches.
How does upper cervical chiropractic help with so many major health challenges? Injuries can occur at birth or in an accident at any time during life to the upper neck. These injuries can be the underlying cause of many issues due to the proximity of the first two vertebrae to the brain stem. This makes upper cervical chiropractic a potential approach for various health concerns, since the brain sends messages to every part of the body. It especially makes this an effective solution for migraine headaches, since they are a neurological condition.
Research with upright MRIs has shown that when a misalignment occurs in the upper neck, blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow is changed, which can result in migraine headaches. Correcting this upper neck misalignment has been shown to change the flow of fluid to, from and through the brain, resulting in improved brain health and reduced or eliminated migraine symptoms.
