Migraines can be debilitating. The constant throbbing pain in the forehead, behind the eyes, and in the temple area can ruin our lives and hold us back. A migraine headache is known for its additional symptoms: nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity towards light, noise and smell.
Chiropractic care aims at finding the root of the migraines, which is often found in the upper neck area of your spinal column. If subluxation or misalignment in the spine is present in the upper neck area, loss of proper motion and eventually irritation to the nerves results in debilitating migraines.
When we take pain medication, we only treat the symptom, but never address the cause of the problem. Chiropractors on the other hand are the professional experts, able to help address the pain and root cause (subluxation) and enable your body to heal naturally.
Most migraine sufferers have one thing in common, the loss of the normal curvature in the neck area, also known as lordosis. Our heads weigh on average 10-12 lbs, and sits on a bone called the atlas. The atlas is the bridge between our heads and the rest of the body. The neck is curved, like all well-built bridges, since the curves in bridges and our necks make reinforce them. If we lose the curve in our neck, we also lose the strength between our heads and bodies. For each inch of curve lost in the neck, the head can feel 10 lbs heavier, and cause exhaustion.
Chiropractic care is a safe, efficient and effective way not only for eradicating the pain but also to address the underlying cause. You do not need to suffer needlessly from migraines.
