Chronic Migraines and Migraine Headaches: It’s Monday Morning.  You wake up with an ultra-severe pressure and stabbing in your head. It feels like someone is pushing needles into your skull, and maybe even your neck. Outside, A siren rolls by. OUCH! That was excruciating. Your spouse opens the blinds. In fact it’s like someone hit you in the head with a sledge hammer. Not again!  Calling in sick again.  Your spouse has to drop off and pick up the kids. We’re doing take out for dinner again.  Dang it! Have to cancel dance class AGAIN. You’re stuck in bed for at least the remainder of the day.  Who knows how many days it will last this time?

The Common Medical Approach

Chronic Migraines and Migraine Headaches:  Does this sound like you or a loved one?  Unfortunately, about one in four Americans like you suffers from chronic migraines (Migraine Research Foundation).    It’s important to realize that a chronic migraine is not just a headache.  Instead, it can be a combination of neurological problems.  Because the symptoms are so severe, many migraine sufferers turn to medication for relief.  While medication does have its place, most migraine medications only treat the symptoms.  Additionally, they have some serious side effects.  These include blindness, nerve pain, nightmares, numbness, bleeding, weakness and even headaches!

Our Approach to a Healthier You

When dealing with head and vascular health, it’s important to find and address the actual source of stress.  In fact there are many things out there that can trigger migraines.  Additionally, some migraines have to do with stressed organs not working properly.  Meanwhile, others have to do with outside triggers.  Furthermore others yet are due to mechanical stress such as sitting at the computer too long.  Rather than treating the symptoms, we strive to locate the source of stress.  Then we eliminate external triggers and help stressed organs and systems work properly.  So no, we don’t treat migraines and migraine headaches.  What we do is help your body work the way it’s supposed to without drugs or surgery.  We accomplish this through enzyme nutrition and structural correction through chiropractic and home exercise care.  Of course we only use scientific test that are based on sound medical principals.
