According to the Mayo Clinic, a typical migraine headache produces some or all of the following symptoms:
• Head pain with a pulsating or throbbing quality
• Pain that worsens with physical activity
• Pain that interferes with your regular activities
• Nausea with or without vomiting
• Sensitivity to light and sound
These migraine headaches can last for hours or even days at a time. While no one knows what causes migraines, studies show that chiropractic care can be equally as effective as medication for treating and preventing these headaches.
To understand why, you need to understand how spinal health works. The regular stresses and strains of life often cause vertebrae to become misaligned, which creates pressure on the nerves travelling to and from the head. This pressure can lead to chemical imbalances in the brain.
How Family Chiropractic Can Help
By realigning the vertebrae, chiropractic treatment can remove the pressure and relieve migraine headaches – all without the side effects of prescription drugs.
