According to Autumn Monteiro DC, “One out of every 25 adults and teenagers live at least as many days with a headache as without them.  According to the National Headache Foundation, 29.5 million people suffer from migraine headaches.  Of these 70-80% have a family history of migraines and many of them use traditional medication.  This is not only a costly treatment, but may involve many side affects as well.”

She goes on to state, “U.S. News Health states that ‘A migraine is a common type of headache that may occur with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light.  In many people, a throbbing pain is felt on only one side of the head.  Some people who get migraines have warning symptoms, called an aura, before the actual headache begins.  An aura is a group of symptoms, usually visual disturbances, that serve as a warning sign that a bad headache is coming.’  Today medical experts believe a migraine attack actually begins in the brain itself,where it involves various nerve pathways and chemicals.  The changes affect blood flow in the brain and surrounding tissues.”

Dr. Autumn is a chiropractor that specializes in a method of upper cervical care. She says, “Upper cervical care is a perfect way to rid yourself or someone you love of symptoms associated with migraine headaches.  Many patients have had tremendous success with resolving their headaches completely.  Dr. Seymour Diamond, the executive director of the National Headache foundation says that there are new imaging techniques that allow scientists to identify what they believe to be the cause of headaches, brainstem malfunction.  Increased swelling of the vessels that surround the brain set one up for a migraine.  By removing brainstem interference with a specific upper cervical correction, blood flow can be properly restored, therefore eliminating the cause of the headache.”
