For many people, it starts with a flickering shimmer in their vision. Fast-forward about an hour, and you get debilitating pain, nausea, blindness, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines don’t mess around!
No matter how severe or frequent your migraines may be, we want you to be free of them completely. Chiropractic treatment is often overlooked when it comes to migraines, but is incredibly effective. If you suffer from migraines, read on to learn the ways chiropractic care can be your strongest ally!
Many headaches originate in the neck. When the vertebrae experience mechanical dysfunction, it tenses up the muscles and irritates the nerves that control the blood flow to your head. Headaches are a result. Unfortunately, many different activities can mess up your neck vertebrae. It can be anything from car accident trauma to poor posture. Many times, a combination of these damaging events and repetitive postures creates chronic headaches. Painkillers can dull the pain, but they can’t address the root of the issue. A chiropractor can.
When you visit our office, we will take the time to understand your past and pinpoint any events that may have hurt your neck. We will ask if there are certain activities that make your headaches worse or better. We will check your reflexes, muscle strength, and sensation to understand how your nerves are doing. We may even take X-rays to help us understand what exactly is going on when your neck is in a stressed position. Once we understand your situation, we will proceed with world-class treatment to restore your neck vertebrae and free you from your headaches.
