Migraine Relief in Johnston

person with headache painAt Schultz Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we understand how dealing with debilitating migraine pain can impact your daily life. Our approach to migraine care combines precision, experience, and a deep understanding of neurology to provide relief and long-term resolution.

Focusing the Power of Cervical Adjustments

With chiropractic care, the key lies in the specificity of the adjustment. Our experienced chiropractor, Dr. Schultz, targets the exact vertebra causing the problem, primarily focusing on the upper cervical area (C1, C2), a common problem area for migraines. Unlike other methods, such as instrument adjusting, we rely on manual adjustments, which have proven to be the most effective in relieving and curing headaches.

While migraines are often labeled as “vascular” headaches, their root lies in neurological control. Nerve input regulates the contraction or dilation of blood vessels, influencing headache patterns.

Our precise C1 manual adjustments are usually done sitting in a chair, with very little rotation. Upper cervical manipulation is an art; the direction, speed, and depth of the adjustment must be carefully controlled. Our chiropractor addresses the neurological aspect of migraines, offering immediate relief and long-term correction.

Personalized Care for Lasting Results

We emphasize the importance of correct frequency in chiropractic care, like taking the proper medication dosage. Consistency in care is crucial for long-term resolution. Our approach has yielded miraculous results for over three decades, with many patients experiencing relief within minutes of care and sustained correction within weeks.

In addition to manual adjustments, we offer proprietary pre- and post-migraine adjustment therapy designed to enhance results. For those open to alternative therapies, we may incorporate acupuncture when appropriate, enriching our holistic approach to migraine care.
