Chronic migraines are a debilitating condition that involves 15 or more migraines per month. That means a person is spending most of the time out of commission since migraines can often require a day or two to recover from. For some, bouncing from one medication to the next has been the only treatment ever offered.
Why Medication Is Often Ineffective for Chronic Migraines
While medication may temporarily help with the symptoms of a migraine, there is no miracle pill that will stop the next migraine from occurring. Plus, many medications can produce more headaches when taken frequently and for long periods of time. The result is a cycle where one medication is taken to deal with migraine headache pain until it begins causing them and then the medication is switched, and the process starts again.
Other treatments involve dangerous Botox injections or a journal in which you record foods, activities, etc. to determine potential migraine triggers and avoid them. Are you tired of the run-around, the trial and error, and the side effects?

Upper Cervical Care for Migraines
Using the Blair technique, we locate and correct very specific misalignments of the upper neck. Such misalignments can result in reduced blood and cerebrospinal fluid flow to the brain. They can also affect communication in the body by placing pressure on the brainstem. Once these issues are relieved through an adjustment, healing can begin.
Elster conducted a case study involving a 35-year-old figure skater who started experiencing migraines after an accident occurred at age 23. After 12 years of medication, just 3 months of upper cervical care resolved her migraine issues. After a year, her migraines were still gone.
This is just one of more than 100 documented cases of that show the benefits upper cervical care can have for patients with migraines. To learn more, contact Arete Chiropractic today!
