That’s why many are looking for drug-free ways to get relief from migraines. Here are a few recognized means of natural relief.

There are a number of recommended lifestyle changes for those suffering from this complex condition.
When a patient wants to seek out an alternative therapy for migraine care, there are a few options are recommended.
While this is not a comprehensive list of the therapies recommended, I want to take the rest of our discussion to point out one lesser-known option—upper cervical chiropractic care.
If you’ve tried chiropractic for your migraines and met with disappointment, don’t dismiss upper cervical care. First of all, upper cervical chiropractic is a far more precise procedure involving the C1 and C2 vertebrae. It is a low force correction rather than a popping or twisting motion. As a result, the adjustments last longer and give the body time to repair nerve and tissue damage. Also, the particular vertebrae targeted have a profound effect on the overall function of the central nervous system. As a result, case studies have revealed that many patients see fewer and less severe migraines, some even being able to break away from pain medication altogether.
