If you suffer from migraines, it’s possible you’ve been willing to try just about any idea someone presents. After all, anything seems better than the pain, sensory sensitivities, nausea, dizziness, and other symptoms that surround migraines. Unfortunately, not only are many forms of migraine care completely bogus, some are very expensive.
When researching migraine care, it is important to examine evidence, rather than just taking the suggestion of one person. This is because migraines are often different from person to person in what triggers migraines and even in the symptoms a person experiences. If migraines are that different from person to person, it makes sense that not every method will work for every person.
Extreme Migraine Care Alternatives
A recent article recounted the experiences of a woman who was encouraged to try everything from snorting pepper so as to sneeze more (apparently sneezing was supposed to help the migraines) to hyperbaric treatments that would cost upwards of $1,000, were not covered by insurance, and are deemed ineffective by the Migraine Research Foundation.
The fact is that 38 million Americans suffer from migraines and the financial burden of missed work is $13 billion a year. As a result, there are a lot of people looking to capitalize on the market. Where can you go for trustworthy care?
Upper Cervical Chiropractic Provides Results
An emerging form of care is upper cervical chiropractic. Research performed by practitioners backs up the effectiveness of these gentle adjustments for migraine and headache patients. This is because the upper cervical spine, particularly the C1 and C2 can affect brainstem function, vertebral blood flow, and cerebrospinal fluid drainage. These are all important factors in migraine occurrence.
If you suffer from migraines, especially if you have a history or head or neck trauma, upper cervical chiropractic may be the drug-free help that you have been searching for. Plus, the low force corrections are designed to be long lasting which can also make upper cervical care an inexpensive alternative. Schedule a consultation with an upper cervical professional near you to learn more.
