Five Methods to Relieve Migraines in Redwood City CA

Migraine Relief, Migraine Treatment, Natural Relief of MigrainesWe know all of the migraine sufferers out there want to find relief from their pain, so we're telling you about five ways you can beat that pain.

  1. Imitrex
  2. Maxalt
  3. Zomig
  4. Relpax
  5. Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Now, the first four are prescription medications that are given to migraine sufferers. Statistics say that most people reading this blog, or at least most people who suffer from this neurological condition, will choose medication.

Of course, that's most likely because people are just conditioned to want fast relief, so they don't have to deal with the pain and can get through their day. The problem with that is that not only does migraine medication only cover the symptoms, there are also several negative side effects.

  • Abnormal Sensations (tingling, burning)
  • Dizziness (Vertigo)
  • Weakness
  • Neck, Jaw, and Throat Pain
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal Pain

Explaining Upper Cervical Chiropractic

Now that we've explained the negative sides of migraine medication, let's look at the fifth choice—upper cervical chiropractic. In the Journal of the American Medical Association it was once stated “Headaches are not headaches at all but really a pain in the neck.” Seletz E. Whiplash Injuries. JAMA, 1958; 168(13): 1750-1755

That leads to the big question as to why most headache medication numbs the head. The focus of helping people finding last healing should be on getting to the source of the pain, not on covering symptoms.

Now, the good news is that unlike Migraine medication which always comes with the risks of negative side effects, upper cervical chiropractic has helped reduced and eliminated the migraine pain of thousands of patients. The top two bones in the spine are more susceptible to injury than the other bones in the spine, which has led upper cervical chiropractors to find a link between a misalignment in those two bones and migraine pain and other chronic headaches.
