The Link Between Migraines and Multiple Sclerosis


Several studies in the past have revealed the connection between migraines and multiple sclerosis (MS). Doctors and researchers have established that these two conditions can share the same root cause, and a common resolution was noted in helping patients with both disorders.

Similarities Between Migraines and Multiple Sclerosis

Dr. Raymond Damadian, the inventor of the MRI scanner, conducted several studies that examined the brains of patients during an MRI. Together with his team of researchers, they inspected the flow of cerebrospinal fluid – a lubricant of the brain and spinal cord. They discovered that biochemical barriers bring about migraines and multiple sclerosis. What’s even more exciting, they found out that these barriers could be removed, resulting in a reduction of migraine and MS symptoms.

This revelation implies that the presence of a misalignment in the upper bones of the neck may put undue stress on the brainstem, leading to an obstruction in nerve communication, cerebral spinal fluid flow, and blood flow to and from the brain.

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Can Heal Migraines and MS

People who are suffering from migraines and MS caused by an upper neck misalignment can benefit from upper cervical chiropractic care. This specific type of chiropractic care realigns the top bones of the upper cervical spine, without popping or cracking the bones. It utilizes a gentle technique to encourage the neck vertebrae to return into correct alignment. Its adjustments are precise and accurate, leading to a natural and longer-lasting adjustment. Many patients have responded well to upper cervical chiropractic care, sharing a reduction in frequency and severity of both their migraine and MS symptoms. Some have also reported complete remission.
