In order to cope with this problem, the underlying cause must be corrected. What are some of the symptoms of a basilar migraine?

  • Problems coordinating speech and talking
  • Experiencing temporary blindness
  • Losing balance
  • Gray-like vision
  • Feeling of confusion
  • Tingling sensation in the body
  • Double vision
  • Passing out
  • Hearing issues
  • Dizziness
  • Slurring speech

If this list of symptoms is familiar to one, the next step would be to find out what may be triggering a basilar migraine to occur. Here are some common triggers to look out for:

    • Too much physical exertion
    • Too much or too little caffeine
    • Nitrates found in processed food
    • Alcohol consumption
    • Certain medications
    • Environmental influences
    • Being stressed
    • Hormonal changes in females
    • Not eating regular meals leading to low blood sugar
    • Change in altitude or weather
    • Not sleeping well
    • Bright lights


Caring for Basilar Migraines Naturally

Once a person has determined that he may have basilar migraines, a good next step is to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. One cannot determine for himself what is causing the disturbance in the brain or brainstem, but an upper cervical examination may be telling. I have been specially trained to find disturbances that lie in the upper neck. A misalignment here can often be traced back to a cause of migraines.

At Precision Spinal Care, we use modern diagnostic imaging techniques to find out where a specific misalignment is located. We then use a gentle method to encourage the bones of the neck to realign naturally. We do not pop or crack the spine. Once the misalignment is corrected, the body can begin to function at its optimum once again. Patients have seen positive results in as few as one or two visits. Some see an improvement in the severity of symptoms, while others see their migraines go away.
