There are not many conventional methods for finding relief from migraines, even with all of the medical research out there. Most of the time the medication that is prescribed for this type of neurological abnormality double as antidepressants, anti-seizure medication, or medication for high blood pressure. That's because the symptoms of migraines are often the same as those conditions.
While the cause of this type of neurological abnormality is not known within the medical community, it seems there are many possible triggers. What triggers this type of head pain in one person may differ from those triggers in another person. Because of that there are often different treatments that may be used from one migraine sufferer to another.
The benefit of this is that, for example, a nutritionist might suggest to a person who suffers from migraines due to food allergies that they cut out certain foods from their diets. That will hopefully work well for them, but it won't necessarily work well for someone who suffers from migraines due to stress. People who suffer from migraines due to stress will want to try a more holistic method such as the following:
Now, there is a chance that those migraines you suffer from may be due to a misalignment in the top two vertebrae in your neck. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter of those two bones to place enough pressure on the brainstem to hinder the brain's ability to communicate with the body. The good news is that upper cervical chiropractic focuses on realigning those top two bones, also known as the upper cervical spine, so as to restore the brain's ability to communicate with the body. This will then allow the body to begin to heal itself, thus reducing and many times eliminating the frequency and severity of migraine pain.
