Are you looking for a reasonable and efficient way to cope with your migraine headaches? Upper cervical chiropractic care is quickly becoming the answer many are seeking. The focus of this type of care is on the top two vertebrae in the neck (upper cervical spine) and making sure there are no misalignments. A misalignment can cause the brain and body to not communicate properly. Once this misalignment is fixed various health conditions, including migraines, can be resolved. So, how does an MRI figure into the solution?
The Upright MRI
A machine called an upright MRI is used to evaluate the flow of blood and cerebral spinal fluid in the spine. A study was done on two patients that were repeatedly suffering from migraine headaches after getting whiplash from a vehicle accident. The MRI result showed that there was a hindering of the normal flow of cerebral spinal fluid and blood due to a misalignment in the upper neck. This was corrected, and the flow became regulated once again. Within an hour, both patients reported that their migraine pain was nearly eliminated. They had long term positive results, only requiring an adjustment if their migraines started up again.

How This Can Help A Migraine?
When the cerebral spinal fluid backs up in the brain, the pressure created can cause migraines along with other health problems, such as neck pain, numbness, and tingling. Relief from this pressure is given when the top two vertebrae are aligned properly and are no longer hindering flow of bodily fluids. Dr. Elan Schrier of Delray Beach, Florida is an upper cervical chiropractor who would be more than happy to give you an assessment of your spine. It will then be determined if and exactly what kind of adjustment you may need to help you cope with your migraines. Why not schedule an appointment as soon as possible and stop living with migraine pain?
