Migraine Relief

A woman holding her head in pain.Migraines are more than just a headache. A migraine is a neurological condition that causes extreme pain in the head, nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, visual changes, changes in speech and/or other atypical neurological symptoms. They are at best very painful and at worst completely debilitating.

How Chiropractic Care May Help

Dysfunctions or misalignments in the upper neck often cause migraines. When a bone in the neck is not positioned properly, it can cause interference in the nervous system, resulting in a variety of issues and conditions, including migraines. Chiropractic may be able to help by locating and correcting these misalignments in the neck.

At Alexander Chiropractic and Wellness, we take specific digital X-rays here in our office to determine if there is a structural component to your migraines. If so, chiropractic adjustments may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Life-Changing Results

One of our chiropractors grew up with migraines from the age of 7 to 14, and nothing helped—not increasingly stronger drugs, not elimination diets, nothing. Finally, a friend recommended chiropractic care. After his first visit, he went over a week without a migraine, something that hadn’t happened in years. Within a few weeks, he stopped getting migraines completely—and eventually decided he wanted to help others in the same way.

Our Approach

Your chiropractor will talk with you about your migraines and other health history before doing a complete examination, including X-rays. If we believe chiropractic care can help, we will design a care plan specifically for you. In most cases, seated cervical (neck) adjustments are the best approach for migraines.

Each person is unique, and the time required to experience relief varies. Some patients feel improvement after their first adjustment, and typically it can take up to two weeks to get relief.
