An estimated 12% of Americans have to cope with migraines. This creates a great financial burden for the nation. More than 20 billion USD are lost annually thanks to medical bills and lost time at work. Migraine attacks can be debilitating to the sufferer and may last anywhere from a few hours to several days.
Athletes Are Not Immune to Migraines
Cardale Jones, an Ohio State quarterback, has recently been hospitalized for a migraine. Jones performs at a high level and already pays close attention to things such as diet, hydration, sleep, and stress – the primary migraine triggers. This shows that just about anyone can suffer from the head pain, nausea, and light and sound sensitivity that are associated with migraines.

Upper Cervical Treatment for Migraine Sufferers
While preventing migraines from happening is the ideal way to treat them, most options focus on mitigating symptoms once a migraine occurs. While there is still debate over the specific cause of migraines, it is understood that this condition is neurovascular in nature. This is the basis for seeking upper cervical treatment for migraines. At Mountain State Wellness, you can receive this natural and gentle migraine treatment.
At our practice, focus is placed on correcting misalignments of the C1 and C2 vertebrae (the top two bones in the neck). When misaligned, these bones can interrupt the proper flow of blood and cerebrospinal fluid. The result from such an interruption to the nervous and vascular systems can be migraines. Many find that after even just one or two adjustments, they see a significant reduction in migraine symptoms or occurrence, and many even see a complete resolution of the health condition.
If you or a loved one suffer from migraine headaches, give us a call at Mountain State Wellness to get on the road to health.
