chiropractic5Migraine headaches are a major health problem. Upwards of 25 million people who live in the US experience at least one migraine headache every year. Migraines frequently are linked with occasional vomiting, a pulsing pressure behind your eyes, neck tightness, an acute susceptibility to loud sounds or bright lights, nausea, and pain.

How can a Tallahassee chiropractic doctor help you with migraine headaches?

  • A physical exam is given to rule out vision disorders, tumors, or vascular problems
  • Spinal manipulation (especially of the cervical spine) may be performed 1-2 times weekly for several months. Chiropractic adjustments can help to alleviate stress and improve spinal function
  • Massage therapy weekly for trigger point and post-isometric pressure found in the upper trapezius and sub occipital muscles has been found beneficial
  • Multidisciplinary care, including nutritional and stress counseling, relaxation, and other exercise, have been found useful in lessening migraine occurrence and pain
  • A Tallahassee chiropractic doctor can recommend diet changes, suggest adding vitamin B, and give nutritional advice
  • A chiropractor can offer posture advice, better postures to use at work (ergonomics), relaxation techniques, and more. By following their advice, a patient can find some relief from recurring joint irritation and muscle tension in upper back and neck muscles
  • Migraines can be caused by a subluxation, or small spinal misalignment. Your nerves and muscles can become irritated and inflamed when your vertebrae are misaligned. Chiropractic adjustments frequently correct the misalignment, and many patients find that their irritation, soreness, pain, and stiffness will go away
  • A Tallahassee chiropractic doctor will address both the problem and the symptoms of migraine headaches, using chiropractic adjustments, lifestyle counseling, nutrition and diet evaluation
  • A chiropractor will work with your body naturally to relieve pain, without prescribing any drugs
  • Many migraine sufferers can look back and pinpoint when they received acute trauma or an accident to the neck or head. Chiropractors can realign the vertebrae and relieve pressure on inflamed nerves, which in turn can relieve headaches

It’s worth a try! Contact a Tallahassee chiropractic doctor and receive treatment that might reduce or even end your migraine headaches.
