Anyone who has experienced a migraine knows that the pain and other symptoms disrupt normal activities like nothing else. Chronic and recurring migraines can become quite serious, causing severe throbbing, nausea, irritability, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines can be challenging to treat because many things cause them, including hormones, stress, environmental factors, and food. A pinched nerve in the back or neck can also cause acute headaches and trigger migraine symptoms. That’s why chiropractic care has been found to be an effective treatment for migraines. Instead of relying on medication to numb or reduce the symptoms, chiropractic adjustments can correct any injury or imbalance that’s causing the migraine.
If your migraines are disrupting your life, seek medical advice and treatment. Dr. Campo’s goal is to improve and protect the overall well-being of his patients and can help you to find relief. Similarly, if your migraines occur more than a couple of times a year, are becoming worse or more severe, or if they haven’t responded to other treatments, make an appointment with Dr. Campo. That’s not to say that chiropractic care with Dr. Campo should be seen as a last resort for migraine treatment.
Chiropractic care is an effective form of treatment for migraines and is often preferred because it’s natural and medication free, with no harmful side-effects. If you suffer from migraines or severe headaches, make an appointment with Dr. Campo at Park Slope Chiropractic for a personalized chiropractic care.
Dr. Campo performs comprehensive hands-on examinations to identify specific injuries in the spine, neck, and head that may be responsible for the migraines. Chiropractic care including adjustments, massage, mobilization techniques, and exercises can help reduce inflammation and irritation that can lead to migraines. Massage and adjustments release tension in muscles and help to break up painful trigger points in the shoulders and upper back that contribute to migraines and other headaches. Dr. Campo also educates his patients, providing lifestyle guidance to improve posture, improve work environments, and learn other stress reduction techniques to improve their overall health and well-being.
