migraine-care-discussing-two-unconventional-methodsA migraine chiropractor in Vancouver helps people get lasting relief. Migraineurs have a hard time dealing with it effectively. At least 39 million Americans suffer from migraines. Globally, at least a billion have this condition. Migraines are a neurological condition that brings on throbbing head pain, and this is just for starters. Its symptoms may also include the following, which may last for an hour or so:

  • Visual disturbances
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sensitivity to sound, light, and strong odors

Another fascinating detail about migraines is they are as unique as each individual who suffers from them.  Migraines can be different every time you experience an attack. As a result, this makes them complicated to deal with. What works for some people does not always work the same way for others. Many people today are choosing natural ways to get relief for their migraine attacks.

Medical Marijuana for Migraines

Many migraine patients are now starting to consider medical marijuana or MMJ as a possible way of caring for their migraine pain. It’s generally viewed as an unconventional and even controversial care option. MMJ is now legal in various states in the US. People who are coping with migraines can now have access to this alternative. Medical marijuana can give migraine patients comfort and less pain. It makes sense because this drug works by blocking the pain receptors in your brain. 

Migraineurs are sensitive to sounds and often get irritated with loud whirring sounds caused by a lively and noisy ceiling fan. Patients taking MMJ will perceive the noise less while their pain stimulation decreases as well. 

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care

Here at Balanced Living Chiropractic in Vancouver, WA, we employ upper cervical chiropractic. This technique focuses on making sure the atlas (C1) vertebra of the upper cervical spine is adequately aligned. If it’s not, then it can cause pressure on the brainstem and hinder its proper function. If the brainstem cannot send the right signals to the brain, then migraines become the result. 

Thus, it is essential to correct any misalignments in the upper neck properly. The optimal health of the whole spine relies on how perfectly positioned the uppermost vertebra is. Every migraine chiropractor in Vancouver like us helps the bones realign themselves properly more naturally. Many patients experience relief from their migraine pain after receiving our care.
