Migraines are much more than just a bad headache. A migraine often has symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light and sound. In most people, a throbbing pain is felt only on one side of the head. What exactly triggers these severe headaches is less clear, and it’s different in different people. Triggers range from stress, strong odors like perfumes, changing hormones and even certain foods like chocolate, cured meats, red wine, and aged cheese.

These painful attacks can last anywhere from 4 to 72 hours. In fact, migraines rank in the top 20 most disabling medical conditions; impairing the ability to work and live a normal social life. Although medication is typically prescribed to treat migraines, these often have their own list of side effects and can often only temporarily mask the symptoms.

Migraine headaches are caused by abnormal brain activity. Most medical experts believe the attack begins in the brain and involves nerve pathways and chemicals. The changes affect blood flow in the brain and surrounding tissues. Because migraines are related to the brain and nerves, Chiropractic can often provide long-term relief of migraines.


Chiropractic care provides a healthy solution to this problem by:

  • Providing a doctor that specializes in soft tissue healing without the use of medication. In addition, motion study x-rays can determine the location and severity of related spinal dysfunction.
  • Implementing a treatment plan that includes active exercises, Class IV Laser Therapy, and chiropractic care, will provide the best environment for optimal soft tissue healing to get you back to feeling better as soon as possible and providing long term solutions.
  • Providing enhanced stress relief by decreasing stress on the nervous system through the proper realignment of the spine
  • Increasing the odds for long term relief and reducing the risk for future problems because of restored spinal motion and muscle strengthening.
