The Impact of Migraines on Daily Living

Triggers for migraines can include not enough sleep, certain foods (wine, chocolate, aged cheeses), extreme stress, and not eating properly leading to low blood sugar. It is possible that migraine sufferers have a more sensitive central nervous system than those that do not have migraines. Medical doctors focus on reducing symptoms. While this can be helpful in the short-term, most migraine sufferers would like a long-term solution.

How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Helps with Migraines

At Schrier Family Chiropractic, we focus our attention on the C1 or atlas vertebra. This is the top bone of the neck. If this bone is misaligned, it may be placing undue pressure on the brain stem, thus hindering the central nervous system from functioning properly. Blood flow and oxygen getting to the brain can also be reduced. If the central nervous system is unable to communicate with the brain and the body, migraine headaches can be the result. This has been proven to be the case in a number of studies. Our own patients often report a major reduction in migraine symptoms and severity.
