Migraines are a very common neurological condition around the world. As many as 12% of people suffer from migraines globally, with women getting them 3 times more often than men. In the USA, around 13% of the population have migraines. For those with migraines, they are very debilitating and cause much distress. They are extremely hard to care for, and doctors often have a hard time correctly diagnosing them.
Migraines Linked to Heart Disease
Some recent research has revealed a worrying fact. It seems as if those who get migraines with an aura are at a higher risk for developing heart disease. An aura is usually a visual disturbance that comes on before a migraine. Tests have proven migraine sufferers without an aura are more resistant to heart disease on a higher level than those who get an aura. As to why this happens, it remains a mystery. It may have something to do with how migraines are related to a restricted flow of blood to the brain, however. Is there anything to be done about migraines not involving just covering over the symptoms with pain medication?

Alleviating Migraines Naturally in Taylor, Texas
A trend is developing toward people wanting more natural remedies for health problems, such as migraines. Medications are not effective for everyone and often come with unwanted and dangerous side effects. One area that has seen much success in caring for migraine patients is upper cervical chiropractic care.
Here at Atlas Chiropractic, we focus on making sure the top bone of the neck is in proper alignment. If the C1, or atlas bone, has moved out of place, it may be putting stress on the brainstem and causing it to send the wrong signals to the brain. This can lead to migraines. A misalignment of this sort also hinders the proper blood flow from reaching the brain.
We employ a gentle method that helps the bones to naturally realign without the need to pop or crack the spine. This results in a longer-lasting solution to the problem of migraines. In some patients, migraines improve, and others see them go away entirely.
