What are migraine headaches and what are the causes?


Migraines are a type of severe headaches, usually recurring, that cause intense discomfort in the form of pulsing or throbbing pain. The most severe cases can result in nausea, vomiting, dizziness, sensitivity to light, and disorientation. Those living with migraine headaches are often forced to stay home from work and medicate heavily with pain relievers in order to maintain some sort of normalcy.

Below, we outline the symptoms and potential known causes of migraine headaches along with some common remedies, including chiropractic care.

Should you visit a Chiropractor for Migraine Headaches?

 

Yes! While some of the most severe cases may require hospitalization, Chiropractic is often the best remedy for migraine headaches. Those who seek help from a Chiropractor for their migraine headaches usually report less pain, stiffness, and sometimes complete alleviation of their symptoms. Patients with migraine headaches respond very well under Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractic care. While Specific Chiropractic does not directly treat the symptoms of migraines or headaches, it may help increase your ability to overcome these symptoms by decreasing stress to your nervous system and improve your overall function. Often times the migraine patient has a slight misalignment in their neck that is putting pressure and stress to the nerves and blood vessels in that region. Specific Chiropractic fixes these types of misalignments without the use of medication or surgery.
