Anyone who suffers from or knows someone who suffers from migraine headaches understands how debilitating these headaches can be, interrupting your work, home life, and routine. At Secrest Family Chiropractic, PC, we offer headache and migraine treatment to reduce the frequency, limit the severity, and sometimes altogether eliminate headaches and migraines in our patients.
The specific symptoms of migraines set them apart from regular headaches. These symptoms include severe pain often located at the temples or on one side of the face, visual disturbances (like an aura or flashing), extreme sensitivity to light, odors, and temperature, dizziness, and nausea.
Although the specific cause of migraines is not yet understood, migraines typically occur in conjunction with the drastic dilation or constriction of blood vessels located at the base of the head and neck which supply the blood to the head. Several various triggers also often cause migraine headaches. These triggers differ from patient to patient, but often include stress, sleep disruptions, weather changes, certain odors, allergies, and physical reactions to chemicals in red wine, aged cheeses, processed meats, caffeine, and dark chocolate. Using massage, spinal adjustments, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle advice, Dr. Daniel P. Secrest, DC effectively treats migraine headaches, providing patients with relief from this debilitating condition.
Natural Pain Management with Our Scottsdale Chiropractor
Our Scottsdale chiropractor offers patients natural pain management for headaches and migraines. Using massage, spinal adjustments, and nutritional and lifestyle counseling our chiropractor effectively treats patients suffering from headaches and migraines. People suffering from headaches and migraines often turn to prescription or over the counter medications for treatment. These options, however, only mask the symptoms of the headache, rather than treating it at its source. These medications also often come with harmful and debilitating side effects of their own.
Spinal adjustments, massage, and counseling treat headaches and migraines at their source by helping the body achieve optimal wellness. With bodies functioning at a peak level, patients experience less frequent and severe headaches, and sometime report complete freedom from migraines.
