Shrewsbury Chiropractor Offers Chiropractic Care for Migraine Pain ReliefMigraine Relief

Migraines often do not respond well to prescription medications simply because these drugs do not address the underlying cause of migraine pain. In fact, over 95 percent of migraines and recurring headaches develop from undiagnosed spinal misalignment and joint irritation in the cervical spine. With years of experience resolving migraine disorders using a variety of chiropractic and holistic treatment techniques, your Shrewsbury chiropractor can reduce or eliminate your need for medications while helping you address other chronic medical problems emerging from a dysfunctional nervous system.

What are Migraines?

Doctors used to think environmental factors such as certain foods, physical/emotional stress, or excessive sensory stimuli were the primary "triggers" of migraine headaches. However, advances in the field of radiology now support studies linking migraines and headaches to nerve compression and irritation. One study found that muscle tension and muscle contractions occurring at the base of the neck interfere with functioning of highly sensitive nerve fibers leading to the spinal cord and brain, thus causing headaches or migraines. Other studies further support a definite correlation between migraines and misalignment of the cervical vertebrae.

How Chiropractic Treatments Relieve Headaches

As lifelong exponents of chiropractic and acupuncture wellness theories and treatments, our doctors promote self-healing of the body by treating you with the latest techniques from the field of chiropractic and acupuncture medicine. Manipulation and adjustment procedures focus on the need to keep the spine and its vertebrae properly aligned. When a misaligned spine and compressed nerves affect the nervous system, any area of the body can suffer pain and inflammation--including the neck and head--since it is the nervous system that connects all systems to each other.

For migraine relief, you may receive one or more of the following at Marron Wellness Center:

  • Decompression therapy---this restores displaced vertebrae to their proper positions while eliminating  pressure on spinal nerves responsible for neck tension. Decompression therapy also relaxes neck muscles and enhances muscle and joint health by increasing blood flow to the neck area.
  • Massage therapy--by manipulating and massaging soft tissues in a precise, predetermined manner, your Shrewsbury chiropractor can help eliminate migraines caused by overuse of neck muscles. Massage therapy also relieves general back and shoulder pain and sciatica.
  • Acupuncture--after inserting fine needles into specific acupuncture points, your acupuncturist will gently manipulate these needles to encourage blood flow to tissues in your temples and head. Called the "axon reflex" in acupuncture medicine, this ensuing dilation of small blood vessels around needle points increases oxygenated blood flow to areas of poor circulation. For many migraine sufferers, acupuncture provides rapid relief from migraine pain and significantly decreases episodes of migraine attacks.

If you suffer from migraines or recurring headaches and are tired of taking medications that do not help, please call Marron Wellness Center today to schedule an appointment: (732) 542-1272 or email Marron Wellness Center.
