How can Chiropractic help?
First off let’s define what a migraine is. The Mayo Clinic describes it as a “severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on one side of the head. It’s often accompanied by nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine attacks can last for hours to days, and the pain can be so severe that it interferes with your daily activities.” Now this sounds quite debilitation and it can be. Many individuals have found that they cannot focus on their work and even affecting their relationships whether it be with family or friends.
