A migraine is a debilitating condition that affects 36 million Americans according to the Migraine Research Foundation. Those who suffer lose untold amounts of hours in productivity at work, time with family and live under the fear of when their next attack will come. According to the Migraine Foundation, Migraine ranks in the top 20 of the world's most disabling medical illnesses.1
Current medical treatment is largely pharmaceutically-based. The current thinking is that the cause of a migraine is unknown and as a result the current system drugs patients instead of looking for causes. " One of the most successful treatments for a migraine is over the counter Excedrin. Over the counter, Excedrin has caffeine as one of the ingredients. Migraine patients often report that a strong cup of coffee can stop some attacks. This is not surprising to hear. Caffeine is a key active ingredient in many headache medications including ExcedrinTM, AnacinTM, MidolTM, Darvon CompoundTM, FioricetTM, and MigranalTM." 2 While these medications do give some sufferers relief it does not address the cause and many of the medications have severe side effects and long-term overload the livers detoxification capacities.
One promising natural form of care that is helping hundreds nationwide is a little-known procedure called Upper Cervical Blair Chiropractic. Finding someone who specializes in people who suffer from migraines is not easy. And it is even more difficult to find someone who specializes and is looking at the cause not treating the symptoms. This form of care deals with the relationship of the top vertebra the atlas and its biomechanical relationship to the skull and the second vertebra in the neck the axis. Many people who have migraine headaches have them after acute trauma to the head and neck. Dr. Sam Hong in his article titled "A posttraumatic headache 2012" illustrates the correlation that head and neck trauma can have on migraine and headache suffers.
