thousands of pills but not once have you had the bones and nerves of your spine checked for
shifted towards eliminating the cause of the migraine attack rather than constantly
medicating the symptoms of the attack. Neck alignment and degeneration has become a
major issue because of the amount of people spending long periods of time with their head
in books or computer/phone/tablet screens – causing the development of harmful postures.
Many migraine sufferers often report significant discomfort or stiffness in their neck (either
just before or) during migraine attacks and a quick look at the anatomy shows that important
blood vessels to the brain, as well as the spinal cord and nerves that feed back into different
parts of the brain all run through your neck. A forward head (stooped) posture has long been
established to be linked with other types of headache but recent studies have also shown it
reduces blood supply to the different parts of the brain and interferes with the nerve signals
getting to the brain from all the various parts of the body and is something that should be
corrected and maintained as a matter of urgency.
Most research into effective neck correction has centred on precise spinal adjustments (a
type of manipulation) used in conjunction with specific spinal moulding procedures or
surgery – which should be considered a last resort for obvious reasons.
One important study of people who suffered at least one migraine per month and received
spinal adjustments to correct their spinal problems actually had less severe migraines, less
often they had less disability and use less medication.
In fact, within two months, almost a quarter of the people who corrected their neck alignment had more than 90% reduction in migraines.
