WHAT IS A MIGRAINE?

A migraine is a headache that can cause symptoms like nausea, extreme light and sound sensitivity, visual disturbances, and various types of pain. 


They can be triggered by: 

Stress and tension 

Injuries and accidents

Spine-related issues

Bad posture

Electronic device screen usage (i.e., phones, tablets, laptops)

Problems in your muscles, tissues, and nerves.


Headaches are common, but NOT normal. Many people suffer from headaches every day. Your headaches may be from a structural issue. You should try to get to the root cause of your headaches and not mask symptoms

HOW CAN CHIROPRACTIC CARE HELP?

You want the headache cycle to stop. Chiropractors are trained to identify the sources of pain that can be missed by a regular or specialty physician, like problems in your neck, shoulders, and back. 


When nerve pain or pressure on the nerves in your neck or back are causing your migraines, simple adjustments can be made to realign your spinal bones, opening nerve pathways, so symptoms go away.
