If you have a chronic headache and migraine, you definitely understand that they’re one of the most painful and worse pains you could possibly suffer. Millions upon millions of dollars a year are spent on trying to find relief from this crippling illness.
But what causes migraines?
They are caused by a dysfunction or misalignment of a vertebra bone in the top of the neck. This then causes inflammation and tension of the joints, muscles and blood vessels at the base of the neck, which then transfers pain up into the skull.
So what can help?
Gentle but specific adjustments to the neck and upper back can help to restore the normal alignment and function of the vertebrae in the neck, which removes the tension that causes a headache and migraine symptoms. As well as removing the tension, the inflammation around the joints, muscles and blood vessels is decreased and the pain fibers begin to be deactivated.
There are other factors that contribute to headaches, but everyday experiences show that neck problems are a huge contributor.
