38 million women, men, and children suffer from migraines across the United States. This staggering statistic shows just how common migraines are. What many people who are fortunate enough not to suffer from migraines might not know is that they're not just a really bad headache. A migraine attack is accompanied by a host of other symptoms, and can include some of the following:
Upper cervical chiropractic focuses on addressing the underlying cause of many people's migraines. The solution focuses on keeping the C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis) vertebrae properly aligned. These two bones, located at the top of the neck just beneath the base of the skull, can affect normal nervous system function, blood flow, and cerebrospinal fluid drainage. When any of those factors are not working properly, the end result can be a migraine episode.
At Upper Cervical Health Center Fort Myers, we take an extremely precise approach to correcting atlas misalignments. Once normal spinal alignment is accomplished, the body is able to restore normal function. The brain is able to communicate with the body over the spinal cord and nerves, and the healing process can occur. In many cases, this means the end of health conditions such as migraines.
