Anyone with migraines would be thrilled to hear that there is a cure for migraines, but that is not the case. A new treatment using Botox has gained popularity over the past year for migraine relief, but it has its limitations. The FDA regulated migraine treatment is explicitly for controlling chronic migraines and is not a cure. While many people have experienced some temporary relief using botox injections, it is not a viable long-term option.
Migraines are now considered to be a neurological disease that is one of the most common conditions in the world. In America, it is estimated that as much as 12% of the population suffers from migraines on a regular basis.(1) To make matters worse, women are up to 3x as likely to have migraines in their lifetime.
Migraines are a unique condition that affects each individual person differently. They also give major headaches to all kinds of healthcare providers as the standard methods of treatment are limited in their success. As with the Botox, most treatment and drug options only provide temporary relief and do not correct the cause of the condition. This often leads patients to feel defeated and hopeless in their choices, which has spurred a market for natural migraine relief and treatment.

A new look at an old problem:
As a migraine specialist, I see a variety of the options out there, and people come to me when nothing else has worked. I focus on the integrity of the upper neck, brain, and nervous system as they relate to migraines. By looking at the body first and the condition second, we offer patients something different and effective. By focusing on the proper alignment of the first bone in the neck known as the atlas, patients experience natural relief once we can achieve proper alignment.
When the atlas bone is out of its proper position, it has negative effects on the brain, nervous system, and even blood flow which all play a crucial role in the etiology of migraines. Clinical studies have shown that patients receiving upper cervical chiropractic care have not only experienced short-term relief but even resolution long-term.(2)
If you have tried many options with no results, I would love to see how we can help.
