Chiropractors Smyrna Help Migraine Sufferers
Do you or someone you love suffer from migraines? If so, you are not alone. Approximately 36 million people living in the USA have migraines, with 18 million having chronic migraines (more than 5 migraines per month). Migraines are known for causing throbbing or pounding in the head. They may last a couple of hours or up to a few days. Some people do their best to continue living with a migraine, but it can be a real challenge.
Migraines are hard to treat because they vary depending on the person dealing with them. There is a growing market for medication to treat migraines, but they provide little relief. People seem to be trending toward a more natural, alternative treatment.
One that that has gained popularity is using medical marijuana to gain headache relief. This drug of choice is now legal in many states in America. How it works is by cushioning the pain and regulating how the brain feels pain. It may be tempting for some to try medical marijuana if they have not had success in other areas of treatment. It can be helpful in covering over symptoms, but it does not address the underlying cause. Therefore, migraines will continue to happen. There is another solution that may bring you permanent relief.
The Real Solution to Migraines
Dr. Don Parkerson of Smyrna, Georgia is an upper cervical chiropractor. He specifically examines the upper bones in the neck, particularly the C1 or Atlas bone. If this bone is out of alignment, it affects the connection between the nervous system and the brain. This can definitely cause migraines, as well as other problems.
Once Dr. Parkerson has detected your misalignment, he can begin to work with you to correct it through gentle, effective adjustments. The nervous system and brain will begin to function properly, and your migraines will improve. Studies done involving people suffering from migraines have shown that only one or two visits to an upper cervical chiropractor can bring relief of pain and, in some cases, complete resolution. Why not give the doctors at HP Spine Center a call and set up your first assessment? You will be glad you did.
