Suffering from migraines? Our chiropractor can help

While painkillers might be the first step to alleviating pain from headaches and migraines, if you suffer from chronic pain, you need more than just medication. Sunnyside Wellness & Chiropractic Center in Fresno and Clovis, CA can help. The most common form of headaches is tension headaches--these are caused by everyday stress and tension in the neck muscles, which puts strain on sensitive tissue surrounding the brain.

Almost everyone will suffer from a tension headache at some point in their life. Migraines, on the other hand, are a different beast all together. These crushing headaches are caused by sudden changes in blood pressure around the brain. In turn, these changes themselves can be triggered by a variety of things, including food, weather, hormones, or other chiropractic imbalances.

If you often suffer from these debilitating headaches, it might be time to talk to a chiropractor. We offer more than one solution to headaches. Many of our therapies are non-invasive, like trigger point therapy. We also help to address any nutritional imbalances that may be a source for migraines. Our Fresno chiropractor will also take a look for spinal misalignment that may be causing tension and muscle spasms that lead to headaches.

Not all migraines are the same. There are two major categories--migraines with and without aura. The "aura" in this case refers to sensory symptoms, like seeing lines or flashes, changes the ability to smell or taste, or even temporary loss of vision. There are also many sub-types of migraines, like temporary paralysis or weakness on one side of the body, vertigo lasting anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, or chronic migraines.

If you're tired of trying to manage your symptoms on your own, call our chiropractor at (559) 454-1000 today to see how we can help alleviate your migraine pain.
