FAQ

WHAT IS A MIGRAINE?

Migraines are intense, severely painful headaches that affect many individuals. They commonly begin with an “aura” or feeling that a migraine is about to start. As soon as the migraine headache begins, the pain can be 10 our of 10 including visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to light and or noise. Many people feel the need to take an over-the-counter or prescription medication of migraines and sleep to temporarily resolve their pain.

WHAT CAUSES MIGRAINE?
Over 80% of headaches, including migraines, are cervicogenic. This means the cause of the headache originates from a problem in the cervical spine (neck). Migraines are most commonly caused by a subluxation (misalignment) of vertebrae in the top of the spine. With the increase in mobile device use, its has become increasingly more common for people to have a straight and even reversed curve in the neck from looking down. This places pressure on the nerves, spinal cord and brainstem at the top of the spine leading to changes in blood pressue and migraine symptoms.
HOW DO YOU TREAT MIGRAINE?
Our doctor will first identify if there are any structural and mechanical problems in the spine that are causing your migraines. If the likely causes are found, we treat the problem with gentle and specific chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine and relieve pressure on pinched nerves. It is also very common for migraine sufferers to be missing the natural curve in the, when this is the case, we work to restore the natural cure.
DOES CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT WORK FOR MIGRAINES?
Yes. The majority, over 80%, of migraines are cused by issues related to the neck. Chiropractors are experts at treating conditions of the spine and have a high success rate with treating migraines.
HOW CAN A CHIROPRACTOR HELP REDUCE MIGRAINE AND HEADACHE PAIN?
Chiropractors help reduce and eliminate migraines and headaches by providing a natural and conservative treatment which does not require medications, injections or surgery. Many patients who search for help from a chiropractor have already tried medical options for relief without long-term results. Our patients at our Wheat Ridge office typically get their migraine headaches resolved to a minimal level or completely resolved.
