Migraine Management

migraine managementMigraines are described as throbbing head pain, typically localized to one side, which can be accompanied by sensitivity to light, sounds or smells, nausea or vomiting, and blurred vision.

Sadly, the reality for many is much worse.  From the “sensation of having a hammer smash into your head” to the “enduring sensation of having your head split in half”, migraines can be debilitating.

If your only relief is retreating to a soundless, pitch black room, it is time to consider chiropractic care.

Migraine Management – Chiropractic Prevention
For many, head pain comes from poor spinal positioning, posture or reduced spinal mobility.  Chiropractic adjustments to the spine are now considered a preventative measure to help reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of migraines and headaches.

Migraine Management – Know Your Triggers
Most migraine sufferers can trace their head pain to specific triggers.  A list of common causes includes:
Computer keyboard and monitor position (Tension in Upper Back and Neck)
Foods (chocolate, caffeine, mature cheese, alcohol, MSG seasoning)
Weather or Altitude Changes
Olfactory Prompts (Perfumes, Smoke)
Bright Lights
Hormonal Changes
