Migraines really sap a person’s energy. Most cope by taking pain medication of one sort or another, lying in bed in a dark, quiet room, and waiting for the pain to go away. Wouldn’t it be much better to address a migraine at its source so they do not continue to recur? Before discussing how to do that, let’s take a look at 3 little-known migraine facts that may be surprising to learn.
Stopping Migraines at the Underlying Cause in Fort Myers Florida
The best way to care for migraines is to stop them before they have a chance to begin. This does not mean taking medication when you feel one coming on. Often, doing so is ineffective. However, a connection has been seen between the onset of migraines and a misalignment in the bones of the upper neck vertebrae, even one as small as ¼ of a millimeter. A misalignment in either the C1 or C2 can hinder communication to and from the brain and body, negatively impact blood flow, and reduce cerebrospinal fluid flow. This can cause migraines to occur.
Here at Upper Cervical Health Centers Fort Myers, we use a gentle method to realign these bones and bring the body back into balance. Patients have seen positive results in as few as one or two visits.
