Many people have experienced the extended pain of a migraine. Some last up to 3 days. More than just a headache, migraines are a neurological condition. Medication can’t take migraines away although many use pain medications to try and mitigate the symptoms.
People who experience debilitating migraines often go through several doctors while trying to find someone who can provide real relief. Unfortunately, a new doctor usually just means a new prescription that attempts to cover up the symptoms.
It becomes a cycle. You get a migraine, you take medication to deal with it, you temporarily may get a little relief, and before long the next migraine is here.
The matter gets complicated further when a patient experiences aura before migraines. What are some of the facts about migraines with aura?

Whether your migraines are preceded by aura or not, you need real relief, the kind you can’t find in a bottle of painkillers. That’s why I want to introduce you to upper cervical chiropractic. Sometimes a migraine is just a symptom of a misaligned C1 or C2 vertebrae.
When the top vertebrae are even ¼ millimeter out of alignment, it can result in migraines and a host of other symptoms. At our practice, we use the Blair technique, knee-chest method, as well as orthospinology in order to help patients get back in proper alignment. Many have found that even their first or second adjustment is enough to make a stark difference in the severity or frequency of migraines, and many patients are happy to see their migraines become a thing of the past.
