Headache, MigraineMigraine Headaches

There are few other things that a person can suffer from that are more debilitating than migraine headaches. That means that most people who suffer from this neurological condition seekĀ  ways to try to alleviate themselves of the pain.

Unfortunately, more than enough of those people are disappointed to find that the cure they seek through medication doesn’t exist. What those people don’t realize is that medicine treats symptoms, but it doesn’t get to the cause of the problem.

Medicating Migraine Pain

Another thing that’s interesting is that the same medication that is often prescribed to migraine sufferers is also prescribed to treat people who suffer from depression, seizures, and high blood pressure. The reason for that is that all of those conditions have similar symptoms.

Though, just because a washcloth is good enough to help you clean up when you spill water on the kitchen sink doesn’t mean all you need to do to clean up flood damage is get some washcloths. Cleaning up flood damage requires a professional, and getting to the root cause of migraine headaches also requires a professional.

The Difference is in Your Upper Vertebrae

Fortunately, more and more migraine sufferers are discovering that there is a much better way to find lasting relief from their headaches through upper cervical chiropractic. This specific type of chiropractic focuses on allowing the body to heal itself by realigning the top two vertebrae in the upper neck. A misalignment of those two vertebrae, also called the upper cervical spine, can cause all sorts of damage throughout the body including migraines.

Though, fortunately, whether a person experienced an upper cervical injury due to an accident or a birth injury, realigning those two vertebrae can frequently reverse any damage done. That’s because those two vertebrae are positioned right at the base of the brainstem, which is the main component through which the brain communicates with the body.
