Eliminate a common cause of headaches with a regular chiropractic checkup.

You’re sitting in a darkened room, with no sound and you’re in agony. Your throbbing head feels like it is splitting in half, you’re nauseous and maybe even vomiting. You are suffering from a migraine and you just want the pain to go away…and never come back.

What Causes a Migraine Headache?

There are many triggers but the most common are:

  • Foods, including alcohol, aged cheese, caffeine, chocolate, artificial sweeteners and seasonings (MSG)
  • Hormonal changes, related to a decrease in estrogen levels, which may occur before a woman’s monthly period. Birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy can also trigger migraines
  • Medications
  • Stress
  • Too much or too little sleep
  • Weather changes or changes in time zone or altitude
  • External factors, such as bright lights, certain smells (perfume) or second-hand smoke

Prescribed preventative and symptom-relieving medication is the typical medical treatment for migraines.

Positive Results with Chiropractic Care

Many research studies have examined the effects of chiropractic care on the frequency, intensity and duration of migraines. One study was conducted for six months at the Chiropractic Research Center of Macquarie University in Australia. It involved 177 participants who suffered from migraine headaches for an average of 18 years.

The results of the study were impressive; the majority of the participants experienced positive outcomes. 72% of the participants had a substantial reduction or noticeable improvement in their symptoms. Including a drop in the frequency, the intensity and the duration of their migraines. They even noticed a decreased need for their migraine medications.
