Suffering From Migraines?

Migraines can prevent you from enjoying your everyday life and can cause a wide range of symptoms, from hallucinations to dizziness to anxiety. They can be debilitating and we are here to help.

We will address the root cause your migraine symptoms, work to alleviate the problem and causes, and improve nervous system health. Chiropractic care can offer solutions to manage and eliminate these migraines.

Migraines come in many stages that will affect everyone differently.

The symptoms of a migraine headache can vary depending upon its stage. Migraines may have up to 4 distinct stages: The Prodrome stage, The Aura stage, The Main stage, The Postdrome stage.

  • In the prodrome stage, the early warning signs appear. These may include problems with concentrating, exhaustion, excessive yawning, unusual food cravings, difficulty in speaking, hyperactivity, mood swings, and sleepiness.
  • The next stage, the aura stage, isn’t experienced by all people with migraines. Its symptoms can include auditory hallucinations, hearing issues, olfactory hallucinations, visual hallucinations, partial loss of vision, vertigo, waves of dizziness, and other symptoms.
  • In the main phase of a migraine, patients have severe throbbing head pain that is often concentrated on one side of the head. However, it may occur on both sides. Confusion, pain in the sinuses, dizziness, anxiety, nausea, diarrhea, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, and sensitivity to scents are also common during the main phase of a migraine.
  • In the postdrome stage, the pain has usually passed but some effects can linger. People may feel exhausted, slow, and have problems comprehending things that they normally have no issues with.

Through the utilization of chiropractic, our top goal is to tailor your migraine treatment to the specific cause. The first order of business is to address why you are having migraines. Your treatment plan will likely include performing adjustments that alleviate nervous system pressure and improve spinal health. Additionally, we can provide lifestyle counseling to help you make lifestyle changes to prevent or lessen your migraines.

Many migraine sufferers experience relief from current migraines quite rapidly after chiropractic treatment. It is also common to see a dramatically lowered number of migraine headaches overall when a patient has regular chiropractic care. During the migraines that do occur, many patients say that their pain level is considerably reduced overall.
