Migraines

Migraines are severe headaches that are often associated with nausea and hypersensitivity to light. They can last from a few hours to a few days. The main cause of migraine headaches is the dilation and irritation of the blood vessels in the brain that are controlled by the nervous system. It is this increased pressure that leads to the pounding headache. Chiropractic addresses the pressure on these nerves to alleviate the occurrence of migraines.

There are a number of factors that can trigger migraine headaches, such as pinched nerves, lack of sleep, stress, bright lights, pungent odors, changing weather patterns and dietary factors. You can reduce the probability of developing migraine headaches by making some lifestyle changes and seeking chiropractic care. 

In most cases of migraine headaches significant improvement is achieved through chiropractic spinal adjustments to the neck and upper back to relieve nerve pressure, muscle spasm, and improve circulation to the brain. In addition to traditional chiropractic, migraines respond very well to holistic therapies such as Applied Kinesiology, cranial therapy, NET (Neuro-Emotional Technique), acupuncture, and nutritional therapy.
