If you have ever experienced a headache or a migraine in Spokane, then you understand how painful they can be. If you think you’ve had a migraine, but are not sure, it’s likely that you have not had one. Migraine pain is often described as a debilitation pain that leaves many patients helpless. Traditionally, headaches and migraines are treated with medication, both over-the-counter and prescription strength. Medications can help dull or numb the pain, but rarely fix the cause. At Advanced Health Chiropractic and Massage we work hard to find the cause of your condition.
Symptoms of headaches and migraines can vary from neck pain, eye tension, irritability, depression and even hallucinations. When a person is experiencing a severe headache or a migraine they will often avoid light, loud noises, become lightheaded, nauseated and sometimes vomit.
Chiropractic for Migraines
Time and time again doctors of chiropractic are able to help headache patients. A misalignment in the spine can create pressure on the nervous system. By aligning the spine, and removing the pressure, the occurrence of headaches can be minimized or corrected. Everyone knows that you go to the dentist to prevent cavities, but it is not common for people to think of a chiropractor to prevent headaches, migraines and other conditions. Chiropractors do not just “move bones”, they help to take care of the nervous system.
The treatment that Dr. Robinson will choose can depend on the true cause of your migraine or headache. When starting care your past and current health will be reviewed, and an extensive exam will be performed to track the source of the headaches. Patients often spend hundreds of dollars each year purchasing Ibuprofen, Tylenol and other drugs to help with pain, but can those drugs fix the cause?
