A recently published study has shown that correcting the alignment of the upper cervical spine can help alleviate chronic migraines. In this study 11 chronic migraine sufferers were assessed using phase contrast MRI to measure changes in venous drainage of the head and CSF flow, before and after receiving a NUCCA correction, and a follow up MRI at 4 and 8 weeks post correction.
The study found that there was a significant improvement in the migraine symptoms and frequency, and also an improvement in secondary venous drainage of the head. This can help explain why migraine sufferers are helped with NUCCA Chiropractic. The correction of the alignment takes stress off the nervous system, relaxes the musculature and improves venous drainage. Therefore, when stresses such as environmental pressure changes, or hormonal fluctuations occur, the body is better able to adapt. The result being that the internal head pressure doesn’t increase, and the person doesn’t go into a migraine episode.
This is an exciting study because we are now proving with physical evidence how NUCCA Chiropractic can help, and when you are improving brain function the benefits are not only for migraine sufferers! It can help explain why people say they can concentrate better, sleep better, and have more energy… after correcting alignment of the upper cervical spine!
