Migraine headaches can be a significant disruption in a person’s life. While not all migraines have a known cause, there are some migraines that are related directly to problems that can actually be fixed with chiropractic care – when the top of the spine, or the atlas, is moved from its normal position.
It’s estimated that about 16% of us experience a migraine headache at some point in our lives. These massive, incapacitating headaches strike at what seems like random intervals – or do they? Is there something we can do to avoid them? And once they strike, is our only option to take a strong dose of medicine and lie down in the dark until the symptoms subside?
Usually, they’re about as harmful as a common cold or a stinging scrape, but they feel like a terminal disease, and whether they’re the products of a stressful day or a lack of sleep, you’ve probably experienced headaches more times than you can count.
