Migraine/Headache treatment

There are typically multiple systems involved in Headache and Migraines. The big players involve the Neurological, Musculoskeletal and Oxygen systems. There are many types of Migraines and Headaches, but it is important to evaluate, diagnose and treat every system involved through comprehensive care. As Doctors of Chiropractic, we understand the need for post-doctoral specialization as we hold diplomates in Neurology, fellowships in Vestibular Rehabilitation and Head Injury and Rehabilitation. This is the result of 1000's of hours in post-doctoral training in the Neuromusculoskeletal system as it relates to Headaches, Migraines and their corresponding neurological and biomechanical connections. Most people have a combination of abnormal cellular discharge in the brain stem as it relates to the Autonomic Nervous System effecting blood vessel dilation; structural hypomobility of the thoracic and rib cage that reduces oxygen content; structural hypomobility of the occipital, upper cervical structures and postural influences. This can cause symptoms in one or many areas such as pain around the eyes, pain at the base of the skull, neck pain, throbbing sensations, pain one one side of the head, pain in the temple(s), visual changes, nausea, dizziness, light sensitivity and much more.
