Unlike typical headaches which involve pain alone, migraine headaches include additional symptoms like nausea, sensitivity, and aura. Migraines often prove debilitating, affecting the sufferer's everyday activities. Physiologically complex, migraines can be triggered by scents, flickering lights, allergies, exposure to chemicals, or the ingestion of particular foods like cheese, red wine, caffeine, or chocolate. Migraines can also occur as the result of an injury or stress. Migraine headaches typically occur after a rapid and severe constriction and dilation of the blood vessels located at the base of the neck. While the exact cause of migraine headaches is not yet completely understood, our chiropractors in Clermont can offer headache patients pain relief from migraines.
At Michaux Family Chiropractic, we offer patients effective, natural pain management for migraine headaches. Although several pharmaceuticals exist to help treat migraine pain, we offer patients a natural alternative to side-effect riddled medications for migraine treatment. Patients, however, who wish to remain on medications for migraines will also enjoy chiropractic care as a natural complement to their ongoing treatments.
With regular chiropractic adjustments, we relieve patients bodies from stress by restoring the spine's natural alignment, allowing the body to function at an optimal level. Not only does an aligned spine relieve stress from the muscles of the neck, shoulders, and back, but also improves the function of the body's immune system, making it better able to withstand external stresses like migraine triggers.
Every migraine patient is unique, and experiences different symptoms with varying severity, frequency, and duration of headaches. For this reason our migraine patients often encounter slightly varied results with treatment. As the result of chiropractic care, some patients might benefit from less severe symptoms or less frequent headaches, while others will enjoy the complete elimination and prevention of future migraine headaches.
