migraines-barriers-to-finding-answers-but-finding-natural-reliefMigraines seem to be more and more common in today’s stressful society. Headaches are also a very common complaint. The primary headache types are migraines, cluster, and tension. As many as half of all adults around the world have had one of these headache types over the last year. Migraines and headaches can drain your energy, your finances, and affect your quality of life. Sadly, there are quite a few blockages when it comes to finding the proper way to care for these common ailments.

One huge problem surrounding headache and migraine care is lack of proper knowledge among healthcare workers. When undergoing medical training, a very small amount of time is spent on headaches and migraines. In fact, a mere 4 hours is all of the education required to pass a training course. In addition, government funding is becoming less and less available for medical care and training. This reveals why there are not many answers when it comes to finding relief for migraines. But, it is not a reason to lose hope. There is a type of care that is demonstrating much success in helping relieve migraines.

Upper Cervical Care and Migraine Relief

Upper cervical chiropractors have had many positive results in caring for those who suffer from migraines. This is because we understand the delicate relationship between the brainstem and the bones of the upper cervical spine. The C1 and C2 vertebrae were designed to protect the brainstem. However, if they become misaligned due to a blow to the head or neck, even one that seems insignificant, they can put the brainstem under pressure, leading to migraines. Blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow can also be hindered by a misalignment in this area of the neck.

Here at Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic in Chattanooga, Tennessee, we closely examine your neck using special x-rays and modern technology to find the location of your misalignment. We then use a gentle method that encourages the bones to move back into place without the need to pop or crack the back or neck. Many patients report a huge improvement in as little as one or two adjustments.
