You may be amazed to find the answer lies in the small area at the base of your skull. The bones are called the atlas (C1) and axis (C2) vertebrae. The brainstem is protected by these two bones. The brainstem is vital to how the body functions via the central nervous system. Therefore, if either of these bones is misaligned, there is unnecessary pressure put upon the brainstem. This is a neurologically rich area that can be obstructed from relaying proper information from the brain to the body.

Dr. Elan Schrier of Delray Beach, Florida uses a highly specialized technique that addresses the misalignments, or subluxations, that occur in the upper cervical area. The C1 and C2 are analyzed and then gently corrected back into their original positions. This allows for healing to begin to take place in the damaged areas of the body. Proper function is restored to the nerves being interfered with. With as little as one or two corrections, according to research, migraine sufferers begin to gain much awaited, hoped for, and natural relief.
