When you suffer from migraines, it can feel unbearable to the point where you must lie in a dark and quiet space. Oftentimes, it affects you so much that you can’t work or even look after your own kids. It can inhibit your ability to think! The good news is that Keller Gonstead chiropractors can provide you hope by relieving the migraines by all things natural.
During a migraine, your sole focus is trying to relieve the pain but understand there are consequences of taking pain medications. Our mission is to provide migraine relief without drugs or surgery.
Is it a headache or migraine? Oftentimes, people mistake severe headaches for migraines. According to medical news today:
“Headaches cause pain in the head, face, or upper neck, and can vary in frequency and intensity. A migraine is an extremely painful primary headache disorder. Migraines usually produce symptoms that are more intense and debilitating than headaches. Some types of migraines do not cause head pain, however.”
When experiencing a migraine, you may feel a throbbing or pulsing sensation usually on one side of the head. Other secondary symptoms you may experience are extreme sensitivity to light or sound, nausea, and vomiting. Some may have visual disturbances which are called an aura. These disturbances could be flashes of light blind spots or other disturbances like facial tingling and difficulty speaking.
If you want to get to the root cause of your problem, a Keller chiropractor can help determine the dysfunction in your spine. A Gonstead System of Analysis (GSA) would be performed to evaluate your spinal condition which will lead to the course of treatment.
A structural correction of the spine will help release pressure or stress which are potential causes of your migraine. In addition, spinal adjustments improve blood flow which can relieve pain. After a thorough spinal analysis, your chiropractor may offer other recommendations to help relieve the migraines such as nutritional counseling, posture correction, and stress relief techniques.
