We’ve all experienced the painful sensation of a headache. After all, it’s one of the most common medical complaints. If your headaches are characterized by intense throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting and mood disturbances, you could be one of 38 million people in the US affected by migraines. Unfortunately, many migraine sufferers report that nothing helps the pain; they simply have to wait for these debilitating attacks to subside on their own.

Chiropractic for Migraines

All migraines have varying levels of intensity, frequency and duration, but there are two main types: Classical and common. In addition to headache, classical migraines can cause numbness and visual or motor skill disturbances. The common migraine has less defined symptoms but may present as a headache with nausea.

Chiropractic care is a natural way to address the issues that cause migraine symptoms. Structural disturbances can move the spine out of its normal position, such as repeated stress or trauma to the spine and developmental issues. Misalignment of the spinal column affects our ability to move and puts pressure on the nerves that exit the spine. These compressed nerves signal the surrounding muscles to tighten, which can trigger a migraine.

At your appointment, a doctor will thoroughly examine the entire spinal column for signs of disturbance. The spinal cord is an integral part of the central nervous system, which controls body and brain functions, so it’s essential to identify any issues with the spine.

We may perform chiropractic adjustments to help relieve the pain of irritated nerves and improve body function. In addition to manual therapy, our doctors may also recommend certain lifestyle changes, such as improved diet and stress management.
 
One study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics reported a 90 percent drop in migraine episodes among participants after receiving chiropractic care! To experience fewer migraine days, contact us today.

"I had been suffering from hip and leg pain for about year when a respected yoga instructor recommended Dr. D. I attended a Monday night seminar to check the place out and promptly overcame my skepticism. Dr. D is knowledgeable, caring and professional with an office staff that supports his philosophy. This is a state of the art facility providing first class health care. Dr. D has been a true partner in my healing process."

"I started my chiropractic journey a few weeks before having my 3rd baby. They were amazing, patient and gentle during the pregnancy. They weren't pushy when I took my time, post pregnancy, to come back. They were amazing with my schedule and did everything to work with me. I felt so comfortable with them that I brought my new born baby and my 3 year old in to get adjusted!"
