Migraine Q&A

What is a Migraine?

A migraine headache is a particularly severe type of headache that has unique symptoms. Research is still ongoing as to the exact nature of migraines. While migraine headaches are still a mystery in some ways, it is now possible to treat migraines effectively in a non-invasive way through chiropractic care.

What Are Migraine Triggers?

For many people, external stimuli can trigger their migraines. Some of the most common migraine headache triggers include light patterns such as flickering, strong food odors like cheese, red wine, and allergies. Stress can also be a trigger for migraine headaches in some people.

Why do Migraines Happen?

The exact reason for migraine headaches is not completely known at this time. The blood vessels within the neck and at the bottom of the neck start to constrict and dilate very quickly when the migraine starts. The reason for this blood vessel action isn't known, but it appears that some people are simply more susceptible to migraines than others.

What Are the Symptoms of a Migraine?

The symptoms of a migraine headache include severe throbbing pain, nausea, vomiting, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, temperature sensitivity, and sensitivity to odors. Some people also have visual disturbances just prior to a migraine or during a migraine headache.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help With Migraines?

In many patients, migraines are connected to muscle strain and spasms in the neck, upper part of the back, and the shoulder area. Dr. Idrogo can perform targeted adjustments that will alleviate tension in the muscles, reduce inflammation in the muscles, and reduce the overall pain that the patient is feeling. Many people feel better after just one chiropractic session, but people who have regular chiropractic adjustments often experience a dramatic reduction in the frequency and the severity of their migraine headaches overall.
