Pharmaceutical companies produce many medications that help people, but business is business. These big corporations are quick to capitalize on health problems. One big one is migraines. Pharmaceutical companies make a fortune off the more than 30 million Americans who suffer from this debilitating condition.
These companies often use advertising to convince consumers their product is needed in order to deal with migraines. The purpose of the medication is to either prevent migraines or to cover the pain. However, neither type of medication addresses the underlying cause of migraines. This means a person will have to take migraine medication for the rest of their life. It is a rarely mentioned fact.
Migraines also involve more than just head pain. Other symptoms include:
- Sensitivity sound and lights
- Nausea and vomiting
- Visual disturbances (seeing flashing lights or zigzag lines)
- Partial blindness (temporary)
What types of medications are prescribed for migraines? Treatment includes:
- NSAIDs (like ibuprofen)
- Other pain medications

A Better Treatment for Migraines
If you want a superior way to treat your migraines, one that doesn’t come with side effects or a bottle of pills that needs to be kept nearby for the rest of your life, give upper cervical chiropractic a try. How can this help your migraines?
Upper cervical chiropractic deals with just the top two bones in the neck. Because they are in close proximity to the brainstem, a misalignment can cause numerous conditions, including migraines. An examination along with diagnostic imaging can reveal if a misalignment is the underlying issue that is causing your migraines. Then you can enjoy natural and gentle treatment.
