Let us talk about migraines for a moment. What would you say is the average number of migraines for a person to experience during a month’s time? If you said one or more, keep reading. What medications do you take for relief? Rizatriptan, Eletriptan, or Sumatriptan? Do you believe you can treat your migraine without medication? If you said no, you are not alone.
Eighty-three percent of people that have migraine headaches take one of these medications for relief. Pain in or around the head and severe headaches are the fifth-leading cause of emergency department visits. They are the third-leading cause of emergency department visits for women in the age range of 15-64. And, over six million prescriptions were given out in 2009 to treat migraines!
Those are some pretty amazing facts. It seems like everyone is treating migraines through medication. Migraines and severe headaches are not only a problem for you, but it can affect your family members, your job, how productive you are at work and at home. Medication only covers up the pain. It does not address the underlying issue that may be going on. But is there any other way that is truly effective?

We must understand that the pain in our head is like a fire detector in a home. Pain is the alarm to warn you that something is wrong. The root of the problem may lie in the base of your skull. If the vertebrae in this area are misaligned, they could be the cause of your headaches. Consulting with an upper cervical chiropractor, like Dr. Elan Schrier of Delray Beach, Florida, is the first step in finding a solution for your migraines. Dr. Schrier is specially trained in detecting and correcting a small misalignment in the neck that is often overlooked. This misalignment can stop the body from healing and be a cause for pain. By correcting this, the relationship between the brain and the spine can begin to heal.
The correct answer to the question mentioned above is that zero migraines are normal during a month’s time. Make an appointment today for an assessment to see if this can be your case in the near future!
