Suffering from migraines?
Migraine headaches continue to bother millions of Americans, male and female alike. If you have migraines you understand what I am talking about. They come in several sizes and shapes with little or no reason. Most are characterized by a severe headache that causes pain behind one or both eyes. The headache can be debilitating.
So you know you have migraines and you probably went and saw your medical doctor. Like a lot of people you may be very frustrated because the doctor did some very expensive test and told you “well you have migraines, we don’t know why, here take these pills.” Now for months and maybe years you continue to get migraines. You continue to take the pills, sometimes you get relief but most of the time not.
Fear not migraine sufferer. Chiropractic care gets great results. At Moreland Chiropractic Clinic we try to find the source of you headaches. For many patients we see the problem is often missed on the patients first set of cervical spine x-rays. The human spine is meant to have curves. When we lose these curves we get problems. When a person loses the normal curve of the neck he or she gets headaches. Unfortunately many doctors do not recognize this as the problem causing the headaches so you keep suffering.
Our neck has a normal reverse curve or a lordosis. Several things can cause a person to lose this curve or even worse reverse the curve. Whiplash or a car wreck in your past is a common culprit. Think back years ago when you may have been in a car wreck, you hurt but over time it went away. Other causes maybe less obvious, scoliosis, or even being large busted often causes women to have loss of the normal lordosis due to anterior weight bearing.
So here is the great news you have been waiting for this is manageable. At Moreland Chiropractic clinic we utilize the McKenzie method to restore this normal lordodic curve. Many people find their headaches vanish after treatment. The treatment consists of two parts, one a SOT step adjustment that is very gentle and it has minimal side effects if any. Second is home exercise routines consisting of graduated McKenzie extension exercises. We have been using this method for 17 plus years now with excellent results.
The step adjustment is very simple and gentle it does not involve twisting of the neck and if you do have a reversed cervical spine many patients get instant relief from the adjustment. The exercises are easy but like all exercises it takes time and determination to do these at home. Pain is the ultimate motivator so I do find that patients with severe migraines have no problem taking the time to do these exercises.
