Coping with a migraine can leave you exhausted and frustrated. The only thing on your mind is finding a way to ease the pain. This often involves lying in a dark, cool room until it subsides. The medical community is still not sure what causes a migraine or the best way to cope with it. Often the options for care are the same ones that have been used for years with very little results. On the other hand, upper cervical chiropractors are using a time-tested method that has been proven to give migraine sufferers well-needed relief.
Cranio-cervical syndrome was the subject of discussion in April of 2013. This has to do with the sensitivity of the neck and how it impacts the cerebrospinal fluid flow and, in turn, the health of patients throughout America. The discussion concluded by stating that many people are still suffering due to improper diagnoses or unsuccessful care for their issues.
One of the specific issues mentioned was coping with a migraine. Researchers in the medical field cannot agree on the exact reason a migraine happens. One thing they are beginning to see as a possible cause is a misalignment of the bones of the upper neck vertebrae. While they are a little slow in realizing what a huge impact this can have on their patients, upper cervical chiropractors have known this connection for many years.

Alleviating a Migraine Through Upper Cervical Care
Here at Balanced Living, we offer our patients an alternative to medication to care for a migraine. This approach gives long-lasting, side-effect-free results. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to cause a number of health problems throughout the body, including migraines. This is due to the fact that the brainstem is stressed when a misalignment of this sort is present. Using a gentle method, we encourage the neck bones to move back into place without cracking or forcing them. This relieves pressure from the brainstem, stabilizes cerebrospinal fluid flow, and has been proven to help with migraine headaches.
