Migraines

Migraines are a very severe type of headache.  They are often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and a very common health problems in the United States.   Millions of Americans suffer with migraine headaches.  If you’re suffering with migraines, you need to get checked by a doctor who is specifically trained to diagnose the causes of this problem.

There are a number of causes for migraines such as:

1.  vertebral misalignment
2.  poor posture (especially due to a loss of curve in the cervical spine)
3.  chemical triggers (such as red wine, chocolate, coffee,                                

     aspertame, cheese etc...)
4.  hormonal imbalances
5.  stress & tension
6.  sensory overload (bright lights, loud noises, offensive odors)
7.  muscle spasms & trigger points in the cervical spine (neck region)
8.  trauma

There are chemical and physical causes for migraines.  If it is a physical cause (such as spinal misalignment, muscle spasms or poor posture), a chiropractor can help.   Chiropractors are specialists who have years of training in this area.   Physical medicine approaches such as chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy rehab and trigger point therapy have been proven to be excellent choices for curing migraines.  Additionally, your chiropractor will explore lifestyle modification such as eliminating chemical triggers which can be contributing to the problem.
