When is a headache not “just” a headache? For millions, it’s when a headache progresses to a migraine. This particular kind of headache, although rare, often leads to debilitating symptoms that keep children, teens and adults from being able to go to school, to work or to fully participate in life. Some of the biggest problems migraine sufferers report include nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, a feeling that their heads are being “bound”, intense pain in the neck and temples, throbbing in the head, tightness and pain in the back, temporary eye “flashes” or “blind spots”, and feeling of helplessness. Though there are pharmaceutical drugs claiming to solve migraines, they also bring a host of unwanted, and usually dangerous, side effects. That’s why so many people in Toronto turn to their chiropractic clinic for migraine relief.
Chiropractic care has long been known as the “organic” way to control migraines for patients. At the Bayview Finch Chiropractic Clinic, we have helped countless patients to naturally keep their migraines from worsening or reappearing through systematic chiropractic care. As patients are adjusted and become aligned, they report a reduction in the strength and incidence of migraines, and are better able to cope if they do appear. It’s a testament to the basics of chiropractic – restoration of the body’s ability to naturally fight off diseases and problems through carefully coordinated adjustments that enable proper neurological functioning.
There is no reason for any individual to simply accept that migraines are a “way of life”, or to rely upon heavy-duty pills that can make the solution as debilitating as the underlying issue!
