Did you know more than 37 million people suffer from Migraines in the United States? Migraines are common among people between the ages 25 and 55. About two-thirds of people who get migraines are women, probably because of the influence of hormones.
While some people suffer from migraines once or twice a month, others may suffer from chronic daily migraines. Migraines can often go undiagnosed or be masked with drugs. At Gucciardo Specific Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care and Natural Healing Center we have a safe, natural, and effective solution without the use of drugs for those suffering with Migraines which is through the use of Chiropractic Care.
Migraine ... What is it?
Migraine falls into two categories: An aura is commonly known as a classic migraine and without an aura is known as a common migraine.
With an aura migraine, it often starts with lines or spots, or different colored lights performing a dance in front of your eyes. Common migraines start more slowly, may interfere with your daily activities, and last longer than aura migraines. Has this happened to you?
If you are experiencing migraines you'll know that a migraine is more than just a headache. A migraine is usually pulsating, intense, and pounding feeling that usually begins in the forehead, often on one side or both sides of the head, and around the eyes.
Potential symptoms of Migraine
Chiropractor for Migraines
Migraines can be from the top spinal bone in the neck that is not supporting the head correctly which can affect nerves, muscles, & blood supply to the head. The pain of migraines is associated with swelling blood vessels and irritation of nerves that surround the brain. When the vertebrae in the neck is unable to move correctly it will then irritate & put pressure on the nerves which can trigger the onset of a migraine.
To help with migraines Dr. Gucciardo, a chiropractor in Queens, NY, will do what is called an adjustment ... and that is the solution to a condition called a subluxation, which is a misalignment in the upper bones of the neck, which can distort nerve, muscle and ligament function.
The adjustments are designed to correct identified problems and allow you to regain movement and reduce migraine symptoms and other associated pain. The joints will unlock & begin to feel relief from stiffness, pain or an inability to move. Adjustments allow your body to heal itself safely & naturally.
