Migraines are a common complaint in today’s world. In fact, one out of every eight people suffers from migraines. Not only do they cause you physical pain and discomfort but they also interfere with your relationships, social interactions, and quality of life. Even your work may suffer while you are coping with migraines.
If you are enduring a migraine, the only thing you really can think about is how to make it stop. Some common ways to care for them include over-the-counter medications or prescription pain killers. While these may help on a temporary basis, it is important to be aware that, in the long run, they may become part of the problem.

Medication Overuse Headaches
Medication overuse or rebound headaches result when you have to take pain medication 3 or more times a week. These headaches can actually be worse than migraines. Sadly, the only way to get relief is to stop taking medication altogether, which leads to more severe headaches until your body adjusts.
Finding Natural Relief for Migraines
Many people with migraines are looking for a way to find relief that is safe and effective but will not cause more pain. Here at Crowder Specific Chiropractic, we offer our patients an alternative solution to migraines. It has been seen that migraines can be caused by a misaligned bone in the upper cervical spine. The C1 and C2 vertebrae were designed to protect the brainstem. However, if they move out of place due to a trip and fall, sporting accident, car accident, or similar trauma, they can actually place undue pressure on the brainstem. This hinders blood flow to and from the brain. Communication is also disrupted between the brain and body.
We use a gentle method instead of cracking the neck or spine. This technique allows the bones to move back in place more on their own, resulting in a longer-lasting adjustment. People have seen improvement in their migraines in as little as one or two visits.
