Migraines reduce the quality of life and can destroy lives and relationships. It is one of the most misunderstood and under- diagnosed illnesses. There are 39 million plus migraine sufferers in the US and it is the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world, according to Migraine Research Foundation.
Migraine attacks often begin and are accompanied with visual disturbances, painful or stiff neck, nausea, vomiting, extreme sensitivity to light and smells. The cause of migraines can often be traced to a head or neck injury, such as whiplash or concussion, that twists the top vertebra of the neck (called the Atlas) out of alignment. When this misalignment occurs, spinal fluid back flow will cause swelling and will eventually impact the small blood vessels of the brain, resulting in a migraine or headache.
