If you’ve ever suffered through migraines, you know very well that it can be one of the worst and debilitating moments of your life. I’ve been a migraine sufferer for years, often getting them about once every other day. While I was working as a financial analyst, I remember having to shut off the lights and sit in agony in my office waiting for the migraine to pass by. Thank God I met someone who was able to help me get rid of my migraines. In fact, I haven’t had a migraine for about 2 years! Isn’t that amazing? Imagine how much better your life would be without migraine headaches? Maybe I should also add that this someone eventually became my husband.
How does Keystone Chiropractic help with migraines?
Migraine headaches are a debilitating condition affecting between 8-12% of people. In the United States alone, migraines are estimated to cost the US between $5-$17 billion. Those suffering with migraines often take medications to suppress the symptoms, which may lead to side effects including nausea, digestive issues, lethargy, light sensitivity, and sedation. Although medications may help the migraine to go away for the time being, it never addresses the underlying primary condition. A study was published in the Canadian Family Physician Journal concluding that “over 70% of all headaches arise from problems with the cervical spine and its related structures.” 70 PERCENT!!!
That means that specific and scientific chiropractic care directly addresses the primary condition causing a large majority of all headaches, including migraine headaches, cluster headaches, tension headaches, etc. The cervical spine is referring to the spinal bones in the neck. When there’s a structural abnormality where one or more of these bones are misaligned, it puts pressure on the correlating nerve fibers. Because the nervous system controls everything in the body, pressure on the nerve fibers can lead to a number of symptoms, one of which may be a migraine headache. When the spinal bones in the neck are realigned and pressure is taken off of the nerves, the body can heal and function normally. Chiropractic care has been shown through research to decrease frequency, duration, and severity of migraine headaches.
If you or someone you know is suffering with migraines, don’t let this opportunity pass you by. I’ve been to so many health professionals and even a neurologist to try to find the cause of my migraines, but to no avail. I was basically told over and over again that I would be living with migraines for the rest of my life and that I could take medications to manage them. When I met Dr. Joshua while he was still a student in chiropractic school, he told me that he could help me. I didn’t believe him at first and I wondered what chiropractic could even do for me. He was persistent about being able to help me, and I figured I would give it a try since I already tried everything else. Thank God I did because it was the solution to getting rid of my migraines. I don’t want anyone to have to go through what I did. I don’t want anyone to use chiropractic only as a last resort after having tried everything else. There is hope for overcoming migraine headaches, and that hope can be found at Keystone Chiropractic. If you or someone you know is suffering with migraines, please don’t let this opportunity pass you by.
