Chronic pain disorders such as migraines can take a huge toll on the quality of your life. Most treatments for migraines involve harsh medications that can also decrease your quality of life. David W Kuo, D.C. has provided residents of Pasadena, CA with reliable chiropractic care services for many years. Many of Dr. Kuo’s patients visit us for the first time seeking headache and migraine treatment.
Migraines vs Headaches
Migraines are considered to be a neurological problem that can cause head pain, neck pain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and vision problems. Migraines are different from headaches. Headaches are often caused by a constriction of blood vessels in the brain or tension in the muscles of the neck and back.
Can a Chiropractor Help?
There is currently no known cure for migraines, but chiropractic care can help to alleviate some of the symptoms caused by migraines. Spinal adjustments can ensure that the spine is in proper alignment which can help with proper neurological function. This may help to reduce the frequency and intensity of your migraines.
Massage therapy, as provided in our chiropractor’s office, can also be very beneficial to relieve muscle tension and stress. Nutritional counseling is also very important for those dealing with migraines. It is believed that toxins and chemicals found in certain foods can also trigger headaches. Our team can help advise you on which foods and substances to avoid to decrease the amount or severity of your migraines.
