Migraines: From Treatment to Prevention

Migraines, Headaches, Migraine, Headache, Natural Relief, Upper CervicalMigraines are one of the most common health conditions that affect people on a daily basis. Worldwide, there are 730 million people who suffer from migraine attacks that last anywhere from 4-72 hours. It is estimated that the people suffering from a migraine are affected as much as 14 days out of each month, and 8% of the migraine population experience 15 or more headaches per month. Migraine episodes do not just affect the head; they are also known to come with side effects such as nausea, fatigue, visual disturbances, and mood changes.


Why Migraines Happen?

The reason why migraine headaches happen is not well understood by the healthcare community. However, the various mechanisms and how headaches affect the body is well documented. A physiologist from the University of Maine recently published a paper stating that he has found the one thing in common with all migraine case, Oxidative Stress.1 Oxidative Stress can be caused by many things and certainly has a role in migraine headaches. Oxidative Stress as a cause of migraine headache is similar to saying stress is the cause. We all know stress is bad, and it is constantly happening around us. However, there is a new way that migraines are being managed that has been ahead of the curve.

Migraine specialist Dr. Geoff Besso specializes in helping people suffering from migraines\headaches to get natural relief in Stow, Ohio. As an upper cervical chiropractor, Dr. Besso uses advanced methods and tests to determine the primary cause of migraine issues. When the Atlas vertebra (C1) is not in its normal position, it affects the arteries and veins that supply proper oxygen and nutrition to the brain. By correcting the Atlas misalignment, many studies have shown great relief to migraine and headache conditions in as little as one adjustment.2 Once proper circulation is restored the body can reduce the amount of oxidative stress on the brain and body.
