Anyone that has experienced a migraine knows there's a big difference between a headache and a migraine. Some of the common symptoms are sensitivity to light and sound, nausea pain behind the eyes, and neck pain. According to the Journal of Headache and Pain, migraines are the 3rd most common disease in the world, with 14% of the world's population suffering from migraines.

Some teens grow out of migraines, but the people that have them after teenage years will many times have them for the rest of their life unless some type of treatment is done. (2) Migraines are the leading disability among all neurological disorders. Severe migraine attacks are classified by the World Health Organization as among the most disabling illnesses, comparable to dementia, quadriplegia and active psychosis. (3) Now that we have discussed how bad migraines are for you or someone you know, what can you do about it.
Many migraine sufferers regualrly take over the counter medications like Excedrin, Advil and Tylenol. If those stop working many turn to prescription Opiods, or Beta Blockers like Topamax. While all of these medications may help with temporary relief, many of them have harmful side effects and in the end, they just mask the symptoms and don't take care of the cause.

Get The Drugless Migraine Relief In Delray Beach That You Deserve
Finding someone who can naturally correct migraine problems is not easy. Upper Cervical Care techniques NUCCA and Blair are utilized by Dr. Elan Schrier in order to naturally correct migraines for long term or indefinite relief. The focus is on taking pressure off the brainstem, and blood vessels in the upper neck by gently aligning the head and upper neck bones called the atlas an axis. The treatment is very gentle, and involves no twisting cracking or popping. A gentle pressure is applied to the atlas and axis to guide them back into their correct position. The measurements to do the treatment are calculated from advanced imaging called a Cone Beam CT. Below are 2 images of the cervical spine with a Cone Beam CT. Dr. Elan is the only chiropractor in Florida currently to utilize this imaging in office. Dr. Elan believes being able to more clearly visualize the problem area is key to his success in treating migraine patients.
