Migraines and Chiropractic Care

When it comes to the overwhelming pain of migraines, there is no sovereign remedy. At Scorca Chiropractic Center, we have expertise in treating migraines with causes originating in the spine. Misalignment of the spine, however slight, causes irritation to the associated nerves, which send and receive signals to and from the brain. When a nerve is irritated or inflamed, it causes interference with normal functioning and can lead to chemical imbalances in the brain that are linked to migraines. By returning the spine to proper alignment, we reduce and eliminate pressure on the nerve, helping to relieve migraines. Adjustments are gentle and help your tensed muscles to relax. Spinal adjustment is a positive feedback system that has been shown to reduce migraine frequency, severity and duration.

I practice a holistic approach to chiropractic care- I will assess your physical condition but also work with you to address lifestyle factors that may be exacerbating the problem. Migraines can be caused by inadequate sleep, poor diet and lack of exercise. External factors such as light condition, seasonal allergies and food sensitivity could be contributing to your migraines without you knowing. Many people turn to >pharmaceutical and over-the-counter drugs before diagnosing the underlying cause. These painkillers are effective only for some, and they can be accompanied by undesirable side effects. We use natural health methods and lifestyle modification to speed recovery and promote overall wellness.

Our first meeting will involve an evaluation that chronicles the history of your headaches, lifestyle, and family wellness history as well as your concerns and expectations of our staff. After our consultation, I conduct a complete chiropractic evaluation which tests range of motion, reflexes and flexibility. In the course of our evaluation, we can help you to identify the cause of your migraines, factors that aggravate them, and things you can do to help control and lessen their influence on your life.
