If you have ever experienced a migraine headache you know they can be debilitating. One of the leading causes of missed work in the U.S. is from migraine headaches. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to light. In many people, a throbbing pain is felt only on one side of the head.
Some people who get migraines have warning symptoms, called an aura, before the actual migraine headache begins. An aura is a group of symptoms, including vision disturbances, that are a warning sign that a bad headache is coming.
When most people have a migraine headache they reach for over the counter pills or a prescription from their primary care doctor. Some people reach out to their chiropractor, acupuncturist and/or massage therapist. People don’t think of a physical therapist to help them.
This is our protocol:
1. Identifying the ultimate root cause of the headache. Once done this can usually make a large reduction in the headache in the first visit, or may relieve it entirely.
2. We simply use our hands to lower the bodies nervous system and balance out the body’s energy.
3. Realigning the spine gently using SAFE mobilizations.
