New Migraine Treatment Option for Renton, Washington Residents

Migraines are a debilitating neurovascular condition that afflict millions. In fact, estimates for the US are that 35 million deal with migraines and 27 million of those patients are female.

How do migraines present? While the experience may be different from individual to individual, many have a feeling of throbbing around the head. Others experience aura before a migraine. This can result in visual disturbances, nausea and vomiting, and ringing in the ears.

The problem with migraines is that they are often unique to the sufferer, and yet treatments are generic. Many are given strong prescription drug. Also, encouraging the patient to keep a diary so as to identify and avoid common triggers is a frequent recommendation.

A New Method Some Are Using to Fight Migraines

In some parts of the US, a new method is being used to treat migraines. An electronic stimulator is used on the head’s major nerves. This is supposed to work as a jammer to keep pain signals from reaching the brain. For most people, this isn’t an acceptable option since it requires having a device on their head to stop the onset of migraine pain. But it shows that many are looking for new and alternative ways to treat migraines. Consider a different2 method being used in Renton.

A Natural Migraine Treatment Option

Dr. Kurt Sherwood is an upper cervical chiropractor who treats migraines using gentle and specific adjustments to the C1 and C2 vertebrae. How does it work?

Often, migraines are just a symptom of an upper cervical misalignment. These bones protect the brainstem, and a misalignment can cause the right neurological and vascular conditions to produce a migraine.

Clinical studies have shown that as few as one or two adjustments can have an effect on a person who suffers from migraines. The procedure is non-invasive, and there is no twisting or popping as with general chiropractic. Why not set up a consultation to see if upper cervical chiropractic is the right option for you?
