Do You Suffer From Chronic Migraine Headaches?
Being a migraine headache sufferer, you know how difficult it is to get relief.
You are suffering, that is a fact.
But what can you do about it to actually fix the problem?
Migraine headaches can be completely debilitating. Everything gets harder with migraines and just getting through the day can be not only a feat in itself but can also bring on waves of total exhaustion.
And if you get a migraine bad enough you will often feel nausea and end up vomiting.
Migraine headaches can effect anyone, although women tend to have a higher prevalence of migraines than men.
Often migraine headaches can present in two ways:
Classic Migraine: migraine headache with the presence of an aura, which often looks like a lot of lights or dots in your vision. Sometimes migraines will cause other disruptions to your vision.
Classic migraine headaches often begin with what is called a prodrome (essentially a warning you are about to get a headache). This prodrome often consists of an increasing blind spot surrounded by flashing lights. Often this will last for about 30 minutes before being replaced by a debilitating headache that can last anywhere from 1-3 days.
Common Migraine: migraine headache without the presence of an aura. Which means you still get all the symptoms except for the flashy lights or dots.
Common migraine headaches, without an aura, are often felt on one side of the head and are recurrent. There are no neurological or visual symptoms, but nausea and vomiting can accompany the headache.Regardless of which migraine headache you suffer from, they can be equally debilitating.
There are many possible reasons why migraines occur which is why it is important to understand the exact cause of your migraine headaches so that the appropriate treatment can be administered.
Many people seek relief on their own and often look at treatments that are usually just a band-aid solution to a much larger underlying problem.
At Gregg Chiropractic Life Centers we approach your migraine headaches individually, working to figure out the exact cause of your migraine and then providing individualized recommendations to help you get better, and stay better.
When you present to our clinic with migraine headaches our practitioners perform an extensive case history, a detailed and specific examination based on your condition and if necessary appropriate imaging, such as X-Ray and MRI, are obtained.
It is through this detailed process that we investigate and diagnose the exact cause of your migraine headaches.We then recommend and provide appropriate treatment based on your condition to get you healing as quickly and effectively as possible.
Every individual is unique and your condition should be treated as unique.
We want to help you with your migraine headaches and we have worked successfully with many cases of headaches in the area.
Your head contains some of the most essential parts of your body to help you function. The brain that controls your body, the eyes that allow you to see, the ears that help you hear, and the many more.
Since it is such a major control centre of your body, it is imperative that when something feels off, you figure out the issue.
Headaches can be caused by injury, stress, trauma, strained blood vessels or nerves, dehydration, pain from other areas such as the neck, and many other possibilities.
Whether or not you feel as though this issue is serious or not, headaches can be an indication that something else is going on and it’s alerting you that that issue needs attention.
Once the initial irritation has been experienced, it can progress into a much more severe issue that can cause major problems in your health.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Migraines:
When a headache is experienced, chiropractors work through finding the root of the issue through gentle adjustments that your body can heal around.
Chiropractic treatment can help with headaches because it targets the actual problem and how to fix it, rather than masking it with a pain reliever.
The doctors at Gregg Chiropractic Life Centers are experienced with these occurrences and can offer a range of treatment options to alleviate you from your discomfort.
