Migraines are a very common condition affecting hundreds of millions of people worldwide. In America alone, 38 million deal with migraines, with women being diagnosed far more often than men. Some common symptoms one may experience with migraines include:
- Pounding or throbbing head pain
- Aura preceding a migraine (in 20-25% of patients)
- Ringing in the ears
- Visual disturbances
- Nausea and vomiting
Migraines are often as unique as the person suffering from them. This makes them hard to care for as the suggested methods are generic and treat all patients the same. Strong medication or a migraine diary to help identify triggers are the primary ways suggested to cope with migraine pain.
A New Way to Help Migraines
Researchers have developed an electronic stimulator, and it is being experimented with in some parts of America. It is used as a blocker on the head’s main nerves to keep pain signals from reaching the brain. Most people are opting not to use this device as it must sit on one’s head to stop the onset of a migraine. But people are becoming desperate for anything that works that doesn’t involve heavy medication. There is one method, however, that is often overlooked – upper cervical chiropractic care.
A Natural Way to Cope with Migraines
Here at our Dacula, Georgia upper cervical practice, we help our migraine patients find relief using a gentle method to correct a problem in the neck. Often migraines are linked to a misalignment of the C1 and C2 vertebrae. These bones have the responsibility of protecting the brainstem.
However, if they become misaligned, they can actually put pressure on the brainstem causing it to malfunction. This means that signals being sent to and from the brain and body become distorted, potentially leading to migraine headaches. Our technique does not involve any popping or cracking of the spine. Rather it is gentle, safe, and effective. Case studies show many see their migraines improve or even go away in as little as one or two adjustments.
