Relieve Migraines Naturally With Chiropractic and Acupuncture

woman with headacheMention chiropractic care and you likely think of relief for back and neck pain. While chiropractic does do an excellent job of alleviating such pain it also helps with chronic headaches and migraines.

People with headaches sense that their pain is coming from their neck –it’s either stiff, or there’s tension below their skull where the head connects to the neck. Stress also can induce headaches and migraines.

What Are Migraines?

Migraines are a vascular phenomenon, but we’re finding that there’s a connection with the nervous system, when the nerves in the upper neck get irritated, the blood vessels constrict or dilate due to nerve impingement in the upper neck.

The Problem With Medication

Many people reach for painkillers to alleviate their migraines. Such medication just masks symptoms however and also can have various unpleasant side effects. Medication also only works temporarily and can interfere with your life even more.

How Chiropractic Can Help

Pick any source to read about help for migraines and it seems that everything else is mentioned—biofeedback, massage and acupuncture—but no word about chiropractic. So many people can be helped with this form of natural health care but medical doctors typically don’t refer their migraine patients to chiropractors.

Once people do come into our office, we focus on the first or second upper cervical vertebrae. If we treat that area with the right type of technique we can get it to where you don’t get migraines anymore.

Patient Success Stories

One patient, who traveled quite a bit for work, had chronic migraines that were so severe that she quit her job. Chiropractic care effectively addressed her pain and she’s been migraine-free now for a few months.

Another patient became migraine-free for six months; before, she was getting them every week for 20 years.

“It’s life-changing and meaningful to be able to help people who have had migraines for 10-20 years. Many of these patients had been to other chiropractors who weren’t able to help them. I haven’t had a migraine case in 30 years that I couldn’t help,” said Dr. Schultz.
