Migraine sufferers everywhere know just how incapacitating it can be to be stricken with a headache so bad it may require a day or days in bed. Migraine headaches differ than the occasional headache. A throbbing head, nausea, blurred vision and more, often accompany these exhausting occurrences.
Researchers do not know the precise cause of migraines, though it is believed to have something to do with abnormal brain activity that temporarily disrupts nerve signals and blood flow to the brain. A misalignment of the Upper Cervical spine can affect the function of the brain stem, potentially causing migraine headaches.
Patients of Upper Cervical chiropractors, like Dr. Peddy, are getting significant relief from the frequency and intensity of their migraine headaches. Getting the C1 and C2 vertebrae into alignment releases pressure on the brain stem resulting in diminished headaches.
