Migraine headaches affect about 6 percent of the population. Anyone can suffer from migraine headaches, but we know that they tend to strike women between the ages of 10 and 40 most often. They also might run in families, so if you suffer from migraines, chances are higher that your children (particularly daughters) will have them as well.
Migraine headaches occur when the blood vessels in the head and and brain constrict. This causes pressure, pain, visual disturbances, and other troubling symptoms in the affected individual.
With chiropractic treatment, we align the cervical spine in order to reduce any impingement or pressure in the neck. It’s not exactly a “cure”, but will usually reduce the frequency and severity of symptoms from migraines and other types of chronic headaches.
If you, or a loved one, suffer from chronic headaches, give us a call. We will examine you, pinpoint the type of headaches you suffer, and offer suggestions for symptom management. We can then utilize chiropractic adjustments to reduce your symptoms and help you live a more comfortable and productive life.
