The Future of Migraine Treatments
Migraines are one of the most common health problems in America. One estimate is that 36 million in the US suffer from this condition and that 14 million experience migraines daily.2 Each occurrence can ruin a workday, a vacation, or time with family and friends.
The health industry seems ill-equipped to deal with migraines. Doctors do not have a reliable means for diagnosing or treating this condition. The fact that symptoms seem to vary from patient to patient only serves to exacerbate the problem.
Experimental treatment options lead researchers into odd territory. For example, one suggestion is that the nerves under the eyelid are trigger points for migraines. The idea is that, by cutting these nerves, migraines can be reduced or eliminated. The downside is that cut nerves in the body do not usually fully heal, so if this drastic treatment does not work, it is also not reversible.
It is no wonder that many have decided to seek out natural remedies for their migraines. Dr. Grayson Blom, a specialist in Boise, Idaho, offers such a solution. As an Upper Cervical Chiropractor, Dr. Blom is specially trained in adjusting the C1, or Atlas, vertebrae. The C1 vertebrae is crucially placed at the brainstem, and misalignment has been known to cause symptoms all over the body, including migraines.
The process beings with tests that reveal the present alignment of the C1 so that a strategy for realignment can be developed. Once the C1 has been restored to proper alignment, the body can take over and return the nervous system to normal operation. One study involving 100 patients revealed that just one to two adjustments was successful across the board at relieving the symptoms of or completely eliminating migraines.2
