Migraines and neck pain

Migraines seem to always happen when you are most stressed and come not only with severe and debilitating head pain, but sensitivity to sound and light, dizziness and often nausea as well. No matter how hard you try it seems as though the only thing you can do to endure the pain of a migraine is to wait it out until it is over and try to manage the symptoms to the best of your ability. Chiropractic care can help reduce the frequency and the severity of your migraines, meaning less time cooped up in bed and more time living your life. What many people don’t know is that poor posture can actually attribute to their migraines. Migraines come with a tight feeling in the neck and around the temples, also known as tension headaches triggering migraines. Many migraines actually start in the neck. When you spend a whole day hunched over a phone, tablet and computer screen, you start putting some serious strain on your neck and back muscles, which can increase chances of getting a migraine. According to a study spinal manipulation or adjustments result in almost immediate headache improvement and provided longer-lasting relief and less side effects than typically prescribed headache medication.

When your vertebrae are misaligned in this way, it can actually cause the nerves and muscles to become irritated and inflamed. When you get adjusted, this misalignment is corrected and that pain, stiffness, soreness, irritation and migraines is relieved.
