Migraine Headaches

migraine headaches doctorIf other treatments or medications have not worked for you, there's an excellent chance that chiropractic treatment will. This includes migraine headaches as well as occipital (back of the head) headaches.

Headaches are often "cervical oriented", induced by nerve root irritation in the upper cervical spine. This irritation can even affect the constriction/dilation of the vertebral arteries and therefore the amount of blood flow to the brain.

There are a number of causes for migraines:
  • Trauma
  • Stress & tension
  • Vertebral misalignment
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Poor posture (especially due to a loss of curve in the cervical spine)
  • Chemical triggers (such as red wine, chocolate, coffee, aspartame, cheese, etc..)
  • Sensory overload (bright lights, loud noises, offensive odors)
  • Muscle spasms & trigger points in the cervical spine
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.
