Migraines have the ability to put many people on their last nerve, however there is a new treatment that is giving hope to migraine sufferers. Headaches are one of the leading causes that bring people into doctor’s offices and emergency rooms and 46% of the global population has an active headache condition.1 Migraines pose problems for healthcare providers so there is always experimentation for new ways to treat patients.
Recently a new surgery has become popular involving an electronic implant in the back of the neck. The nerves around the head are known to be involved in migraine headaches and how the brain receives information from the body and vice versa. By implanting a device and wires at the base of the skull that sends signals along the nerves of the spinal cord, the perception of pain can be reduced.2 The procedure is complicated and involves surgical implantation of the device and wires.

Many patients do are seeking natural relief from migraines opposed to an invasive surgery. Migraine specialist Dr. Elan Schrier is helping patients with natural treatment methods. As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor Dr. Schrier, knows the importance of the nerves and spinal cord as it relates to headaches. Dr. Schrier focuses on the Atlas bone (C1 vertebra) which is where the lowest part of the brain turns into the spinal cord as it passes through the center of the spinal bones of the neck. If the Atlas is out of its normal position it can put excess tension onto the spinal cord which can affect the nerves ability to function properly, potentially leading to migraines.3
Dr. Schrier uses advanced procedures to know the exact direction of the misalignment and delivers a careful, specific, Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustment only when needed. By restoring the Atlas to its proper position it allows the nerves and brain to function properly and migraines typically resolve. In clinical trials this has been proven to help large groups of migraine patients in as little as 1 or 2 adjustments.4
