• Medication side effects often limit the use of migraine medications.

There is another treatment option not listed... Chiropractic care. Chiropractic looks at locating the cause of the Migraine, realignment of the vertebral column and clearing out interference within the nervous system.

What most people don't realize is that mechanical dysfunction of the vertebrae of the neck will cause increased muscle tension as well as irritate the delicate nerves that control blood flow into the head. Improving the movement or alignment of the bones in the neck can relieve the pressure and irritation that results in headaches. How do we get misalignments or dysfunction in the joints of the neck? This can be due to trauma such as falls or car accidents. Repetitive stress such as hours of work on a computer, poor posture or stress can also take a toll over time. In many patients it is a combination of activities that took place often years before which has led to chronic and recurring headaches.iii
