Migraine Headaches are a debilatating condition that affects many people all the over the world. The typical treatment for migraines range from botox injections to taking pills such as imitrex. There has also been much emphasis on migraine relief diets and the avoidance of certain foods. However, could the very cause of migraines and headaches in general be something structural?
When the top two bones in our neck get out of normal alignment, it can put pressure on the brain stem. This would cause abnormal neurological function in the body and stress in the upper part of the neck, which can ultimately create neck pain and ultimately lead to tension headaches. Now at the same time when that bone misaligns, it can actually interfere with blood flow to the brain, which can result in the symptoms that go along with migraines, the lack of blood flow to the brain creates the aura, the blood vessels get inflamed, get irritated.
