Migraines are a neurological condition that can be disabling for those suffering from them. The setbacks are not just physical but financial as well. Migraines affect as many as 38 million in the United States with women being a majority of that number. They are three times more likely to get migraines than men.

What are the financial affects for those suffering from migraines? An estimated 113 million days of work are lost leading to $13 billion in employer losses due to migraines.  Financial loss in the US, including migraine treatment, accumulates to a shocking $36 billion per year.

One Cause of Migraines May Be Workplace Lighting

There has been some recent research showing that migraines may be exacerbated by fluorescent lighting. Spending days working with this type of lighting can put you at a higher risk of migraine episodes. It’s common for migraine sufferers to experience light sensitivity, and fluorescent lighting has proved to be so aggravating for this condition that it can trigger a migraine event.

Finding Effective Care for Migraines

Finding a solution for migraine pain is high on the priority list for those who have regular or even infrequent episodes. There has been considerable success with treating migraines using upper cervical chiropractic care. Upper cervical chiropractors are specially trained to identify misalignments in the upper neck area, the C1 and C2 vertebrae in particular. The role of these bones is to protect the brainstem and allow the range of movement that our head is able to employ on a daily basis. Numerous issues can arise if they are misaligned, even by ¼ of a millimeter, because this puts pressure on the brainstem, inhibiting proper function. The brainstem acts as switchboard between the brain and body, sending and receiving signals that help the body to function normally. When it comes under distress, the communication gets interrupted, and it can also affect normal blood flow to and from the brain. At Advanced Spinal Care, our unique method called NUCCA does not require forcing the spine. Instead we work with the spine, encouraging the bones to return to their correct alignment, enabling the natural healing capabilities of the body. This is how we are able to get patients back to feeling better, sometimes after only one or two adjustments.
