Migraine Chiropractic Treatment in Marysville
What Are Migraines?
Migraines are defined as a headache, which typically includes an intense throbbing or a pulsing sensation in one area of the head and is commonly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound.
Some migraines are preceded or accompanied by sensory warning symptoms (aura), such as flashes of light, blind spots, or tingling in your arm or leg.
Migraine attacks can cause significant pain for hours to days and be so severe that all you can think about is finding a dark, quiet place to lie down.
What Causes Migraines?
While the exact cause of migraines is unknown it is known that head/neck injuries, neurologic complications, environmental factors, and genetics play a key role.
The World Health Association reports headaches as being one of the most common conditions affecting the nervous system.
How Do We Treat Migraines?
Health First Chiropractic utilizes a very specific type of care, known as Blair Upper Cervical. The Blair work consists of a detailed analysis of an upper neck misalignment and it’s impact on the health of the nervous system. A precise, gentle correction is made to correct this misalignment and ultimately stabilize the spine.
This is accomplished without the use of drugs or surgery and does not involve any twisting or popping/cracking of the neck.
