Suffering from migraine headaches?

The doctors at Morreale Chiropractic are here to help. For over 20 years, the doctors at Morreale Chiropractic have been treating patients in Western Pennsylvania and its surrounding areas. In this video, Dr. Vincent Morreale will go over the symptoms and causes of migraine headaches and how they can be treated with chiropractic care. Migraines are a condition that can affect people in many different ways. Some people who suffer from migraines will have temporary blind spots, report “seeing stars” and may even describe seeing zigzag lines. Migraines can last from just a few hours to two days.
The causes of migraines taking hold of you could be from muscle tension, unaligned vertebrae, skipping meals, crying, loud noises, bright lights, certain odors, certain foods, alcohol, caffeine, little or too much sleep and many more triggers. If you’ve never had a migraine before, or you think you suffer from them more often than you’d like, it’s important for you to know the warning signs that what you’re experiencing is just that, a migraine headache.

  • How can chiropractic care help with headache relief?

    Chiropractic care adjustments will realign your vertebrae, increasing blood flow and relaxing the muscles around the adjusted area. This will help to alleviate the stress that’s put on your spine and improve your spinal function overall. Your chiropractor may suggest a diet change or even an addition to your diet, such as B complex vitamins. Exercises and relaxation techniques are always given, as well as advice on how to prevent other migraines from happening if they’re from muscle tightness or unaligned vertebrae.

    If you’re still not convinced that chiropractic care can help you overcome migraines, know several clinical trials were completed by researchers on how chiropractic adjustments helped those suffering from migraines. While spinal manipulation didn’t help a small amount of people, 22% of those suffering from headaches reported a 90% reduction of migraine attacks. Another 49% of sufferers reported a significant reduction of the intensity of migraines.
