Do you suffer from migraines?
Migraine symptoms include:
- Neck pain
- Pain behind the eye
- Auras or visual changes
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Light sensitivity
- Sound sensitivity
If any of these describe your headaches or migraines, read on to learn about the cause of these symptoms and how chiropractic adjustments can help!
Our patients that suffer from migraines have found immense relief with chiropractic care. This is because the very top bone in the neck, which is called C1 or the atlas, can become misaligned. This not only causes neck pain and headaches, but can also cause bones in the skull to become misaligned as well. Many migraine sufferers describe the pain as being “behind the eye”. This is due to a bone in the center of the skull, behind the eyes, being misaligned and putting pressure behind the eye.
Balancing out the cervical spine and the cranial bones can relieve pain, visual changes, dizziness associated with migraines.
The nausea, light, and sound sensitivity that many migraine patients experience can also be explained by “subluxations” in the spine. When the mid back is out of balance, it puts pressure on the nerves that control digestion, as well as pupil constriction. It means your body can be stuck in a “fight or flight response. Adjustments help “reboot” the nervous system which helps relieve these symptoms.
