Find the Underlying Cause to Prevent Migraines
If you’re one of the millions suffering from debilitating migraines, you know all too well the intense pain, sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, and even visual disturbances that can accompany these severe headaches. Often, the only solutions offered are over the counter and prescription drugs, which can come with a laundry list of potential side effects.
At the Upper Cervical Spine Center, we’re here to change that narrative. Our belief is that your body is a self-healing organism controlled by the central nervous system, a system protected by your skull and spine. While most might assume we only treat back and neck pain, the reality is we’ve helped patients with a variety of health conditions, including migraines.
Our approach, known as Upper Cervical Care, operates on the universal law of cause and effect. Rather than merely addressing the symptoms of your condition, we aim to identify and eliminate the root cause. This involves gently and accurately correcting any misalignments in your upper cervical spine, without any pulling, tugging, or jerking of the head. This careful method allows your body’s natural healing process to take over, without the need for potentially harmful drugs or invasive surgery.
The triggers for migraines are many – stress, changes in weather or hormones, fatigue, or even dietary factors.
However, these are just that – triggers, not the underlying cause.
Research by experts such as Dr. Seymour Diamond, Executive Director of the National Headache Foundation, has pointed to a malfunctioning brain stem as a possible cause of migraines.
The brain stem, located near the top of the neck, when malfunctioning, can increase the swelling of blood vessels surrounding the brain, setting off a chain reaction resulting in a migraine.
By addressing possible misalignments in your spine, our Upper Cervical Care could be the key to preventing your migraines rather than just treating their symptoms.
Picture yourself free from the crippling pain and the assortment of unpleasant side effects. This could be your reality with the help of Upper Cervical Care.
Let us help you transform your story from one of suffering to one of relief and recovery. Call our Upper Cervical Spine Center offices in Charlotte, Wilmington, or Nashville today, and let’s take the first step together on your journey to a life free of migraines.
