A Migraine Can Happen to Anyone

A Migraine Can Happen to Anyone

“Ben Affleck Out of Poker Championship Due to Migraine” was the title of an article in the July 2010 issue of the New York Post. This famous actor suffers from migraines and has for many years. He fights the pain by using various medications. Anyone from the least known person to the most well-known individual can get a migraine at any time. Most turn to medication, but many do not think about trying to find the underlying source of the problem.

When dealing with the pain of a migraine, a person may feel like they are the only ones going through it. This is far from the truth. Some very famous people also have migraines. Here is a list of just a few:

  • Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
  • Terrell Davis
  • Jonathon Papelbon
  • Serena Williams
  • Percy Harvin
  • Ben Affleck
  • Whoopi Goldberg
  • Troy Aikman
  • Johnny Damon

Is There an Alternative to Medication that Works?

Medication can help temporarily while having a migraine attack. However, the migraine more-than-likely will return. An area that is seeing success in treating migraines long-term is that of upper cervical chiropractic care. Those of us in this field see a 90-95% success rate of eliminating migraines. Yes, that does leave 5-10% of patients that do not have total relief, however, these patients do report a decrease in the amount and severity of migraines with chiropractic care. How does it work?

A misalignment in the upper neck of only ¼ of a millimeter can place undue pressure on the brainstem. This pressure can hinder blood flow and the signals being sent to and from the brain and body. This leads to many problems in the body, including migraines. Once this misalignment is corrected, the body can begin to heal. It will once again communicate properly, and migraines very well may go away entirely.

We don’t know if Ben Affleck and other famous people know about upper cervical chiropractic care, but it would be something for them to look into because it may just be the answer they are looking for.
