Have you been experiencing strange symptoms in one of your eyes?
Seen flashing lights, suffered temporary blindness or seen patterns in your visual field?
Have you been to your medical doctor and received a diagnosis of retinal migraine?
Have you been told that medications are the only answer for your headaches?
The problem may actually be one of blood flow, and the solution may be traced to an accident or injury in your past. But what exactly is a retinal migraine? Here are five signs that you can use to tell if you have retinal migraine…
Researchers suspect decreased blood flow to the eye or optic nerve may be to blame for the unique symptoms of retinal migraine. This decreased blood flow can be a result of trauma to the upper neck. Accidents and injuries affecting the head and neck can lead to misalignments which can change blood flow from the brain to the body.
A doctor trained by the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (N.U.C.C.A.) is able to closely examine the anatomy of the upper neck with both physical examination procedures and specific x-ray protocols. By identifying these specific misalignments the NUCCA trained doctor may be able to find the missing link and underlying cause of the retinal migraine.
