Chiropractic Care & Migraines
"According to the National Institute of Health (NIH,) migraines affect more than 10% of people worldwide, and they are three times more common in women than in men.
A migraine headache is often characterized as moderately to severely intense, affecting one half of the head, pulsating in nature, lasting 4-72 hours if untreated, recurring at least 5 times, and may include additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound.
There are many causes of migraines, and a variety of treatment approaches may be necessary to control or prevent them.
The current evidence suggests chiropractic care may be helpful for migraines. Chiropractic primarily addresses the muscle tension and joint dysfunction that may be contributing to a migraine.
The persistence or recurrence of migraines can become emotionally wearing. If you suffer from migraine headaches, consider scheduling an appointment with a chiropractic physician to see if he or she might be able to help you." -Dr. Allen Hutcheson, Chiropractic Physician
