As of 2004, the World Health Organization ranked migraines nineteenth amongst world-wide diseases causing disability. Did you know that as of 2014, approximately one-third of employed migraine-sufferers in Canada had missed at least one day of work in the last three months? This debilitating condition not only has the potential to alter the expression of life of the sufferer, but it affects the lives of their family and friends too. I found this out first hand growing up with a mother who suffered from migraines. My work now allows me to help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines through the gentle realignment of the upper neck.
Why does it happen?
The cause of migraines is not yet fully understood. One theory at the top of the list involves the activation of pain signals from a membrane that surrounds the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). This membrane becomes easily triggered the more it is activated, and it can be influenced by NUCCA protocols which is why our treatment works so well with the migraine sufferers. Life is meant to be lived, not suffered through. If you or someone you know is suffering from migraines, know there is a natural, gentle solution that is one phone call away.
