A NEW TREATMENT AVAILABLE FOR MIGRAINES?
Recently, a report was presented on CBS news of a new method being used to treat migraines. Because the origin of migraines for most people is in the neck, doctors are injecting an anesthetic into this area to numb the nerves that may be irritated due to a misalignment of the neck bones. The anesthetic gives the patient relief from migraines temporarily for about 3 days. They are working on developing a more long-term treatment. What many people do not realize is that all drug therapies are temporary and toxic to the body and once the body has cleared the poison the headaches return.
ADDRESSING THE MOST COMMON ROOT CAUSE OF MIGRAINES
Before such drastic and invasive measures such as injections and drug therapies are taken, a simple, natural procedure that has been helping people to alleviate migraine headache pain for over 100 years should be a consideration. The procedure is known as the upper cervical procedure which is commonly referred to as upper cervical care and it involves visiting an upper cervical chiropractor, a chiropractic neck specialist. The neck is examined for misalignment that is most commonly the root cause of migraine headaches. The most common vertebrae out of proper alignment in the upper neck is the C1 vertebra (atlas bone). Studies have shown time and time again that the most common cause of migraine headaches is misalignment in the upper neck.
