Migraines affect as many as 39 million men, women, and children living in the United States. This number is 1 billion earth wide. Women are 3 times more likely to be plagued by them than men. They are most commonly known for pulsating and throbbing head pain, usually only on one side. Being physically active can worsen the pain. However, they are unique to each person experiencing them. Nonetheless, ways to treat migraines have become standardised. One common choice is using medical marijuana.

One often overlooked reason for migraines has to do with a misalignment in the bones of the upper cervical spine. The bones that are made to protect the brainstem, the C1 and C2 vertebrae, move out of place quite easily due to their mobility. This causes them to put the brainstem under stress rather than protect it. If the brainstem malfunctions, it may send improper signals to the brain. This can trigger a migraine.
Here at Lazar Spinal Care in Ann Arbor, Michigan, we use a gentle yet effective method to help the neck bones realign naturally. We do not have to pop the back and neck or crack the spine to get the desired results. Our patients and those in case studies report similar results. Many see their migraines improve or go away entirely and not return.
