Little Known Realities About Migraines in Edmonton, Alberta

Migraines are becoming more and more common in today’s hectic world. Most people see them as very severe headaches that cause a person intense pain. While this is true, there are some important things about migraines that are good to know. It is also good to know that a natural solution for migraine pain exists that really works. We will share that information also at the end of the article.

Here are a couple of things that are not well known about migraines:

Medication can actually be a reason for a headache. There is something called a rebound or medication overuse headache that occurs due to the number of painkillers being taken. This means that while the medication a person takes to alleviate his or her pain does help, it can cause another headache to occur in a few hours or the next day. Some medications that cause this are:

Tylenol (acetaminophen)
Ibuprofen (NSAIDs—non-steroidal anti-inflammatories)
Triptans
Narcotics

People suffering from migraines are at a greater risk for suicide. Various studies have been done that have connected migraines to suicide risk. Those that have aura before a migraine, such as vision problems or sensory problems, are at an even greater risk. No one is exactly sure why this occurs, but Dr. Dawn Buse, a health psychologist in New York, has linked migraines with depression. Therefore, those suffering from the pain of migraines may feel there is no other way out of their situation besides suicide. I want to reassure you that there is a pain-free alternative that really works.

Upper Cervical Care and Relief of Migraine Pain

An underlying cause of migraines has been found to be a misalignment in the upper cervical spine, in particular, the C1 and C2 vertebrae. I have been trained to find the exact location of these misalignments and then, using a gentle technique, work to correct them. Patients have reported seeing their migraines lessen in degree and severity. Similar results have been determined in case studies.
