While most episodes include a moderate to severe headache, sensory sensitivities, and nausea, certain types of migraines come with their own symptom set. Here are some examples.
One of the biggest issues with migraine care is that many still treat the problem like a headache and simply take a pain reliever. Not only will a pain reliever not help the many additional symptoms of a migraine, but it also doesn't do anything to affect the underlying problem. Thus, episodes may continue to occur or even become chronic (more than 15 migraine days per month).
Upper cervical chiropractic provides help for migraine sufferers by going after a common underlying cause, a misalignment of the atlas (C1 vertebra). If you suffer from migraines (including the types noted above), especially if you have a history of head or neck trauma, set up a consultation with an upper cervical chiropractor near you to learn more.
