If You Suffer From Chronic Migraines, It's Time to See a Chiropractor

More than just a headache, a migraine refers to a condition that may include throbbing head pain, visual disturbances, sensitivity to light, fatigue, and a host of other symptoms all occurring in tandem. Migraines can be mentally and physically exhausting, and at times can interfere with your daily life. Migraines are chronic when they’re recurring, often in a pattern but at times random. 

Adding to the frustration about chronic migraines is that you may realize they’re going to strike, but you may feel powerless to stop them. While many treatments aim to address chronic migraines, from over-the-counter medications to physical therapy, seeing a chiropractor is one form of therapy that has shown to be very effective for alleviating the symptoms of migraines. 

Dr. Brian Weddle, DC, is a skilled and compassionate provider who has extensive in-depth experience in treating patients from all walks of life. Through his innovative treatment approach, he works with you to alleviate your pain and say goodbye to chronic migraines.

During your initial appointment, Dr. Weddle sits with you to discuss your history with chronic migraines: 

Each of these questions is important for determining the most appropriate chiropractic treatment for your condition. It’s possible that your category of migraines is best addressed by one or more of the listed treatment options. 

DMC Healthcare offers multiple treatment plans, including spinal decompression, spinal manipulation, and myofascial release, among others. 

Spinal manipulation

Spinal manipulation is a procedure in which Dr. Weddle systematically applies a force to one joint of your spine to release the tension in that area. This procedure is used to address headaches that most usually affect one side of your head.

Neck flexion release

Dr. Weddle also recommends neck flexion exercises for migraines. During this type of appointment, Dr. Weddle supervises you as you move your neck in different ways to release the muscles, thus supporting your head more strongly.

Myofascial release

Myofascial release involves Dr. Weddle applying strong, yet targeted, pressure to certain parts of your head or neck region to modulate the pain that comes on during migraines. Dr. Weddle may also have you stretch in certain ways to maximize the effects of treatment.

These are but a couple of the many tools that DMC Healthcare has at its disposal to treat your chronic migraines. You can live life migraine-free. To schedule an appointment, call or book online with DMC Healthcare today.
