Chiropractic Care and Migraines
When it comes to common health conditions, there is nothing more frustrating than having a pulsing and throbbing migraine. Am I right? Have you tried every round of medication and still no relief?
Well, I have great news for those of you who suffer from migraines. Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care is a safe, natural, and effective solution that can help reduce the symptoms and triggers of your migraines without the use of medication. But, most importantly at Gucciardo Specific Chiropractic and Natural Health Center we can help identify the underlying cause of your migraines.
For some, migraines can be recurring attacks of moderate to severe pain, but symptoms as well as triggers for migraines can vary among individuals. A few symptoms and triggers of a migraine include poor posture, neck stiffness, anxiety, depression, brain fog, increased thirst, sensitivity to light and odors, painful menstruation, lack of sleep, certain medications, and poor diet.
In addition, I often find that patients who have migraines also have a severe misalignment, or subluxation in the upper neck. Many migraines can be from the top of the neck. This can cause the head to sit incorrectly which can irritate nerves, muscles, and interfere with blood flow and spinal fluid to the head. When the flow is restricted in the neck it can and will trigger the onset of a migraine.
So, to help with migraines Dr. Gucciardo will do a gentle and non-invasive procedure called an adjustment to the subluxation in the neck. The adjustment is designed to help correct and remove the subluxation which allows migraine symptoms to be reduced or completely go away along with other symptoms related to it and the body can now begin to heal again.
