Here at Kauzlarich Chiropractic, I specialize in assisting my patients through their headache pain. I am proud to serve Lee’s Summit and the surrounding communities.
Unfortunately, many people suffer from headaches, and some patients even develop migraines. Migraines are throbbing headaches that are often accompanied by fuzzy eyesight, sensitivity to light and sound, and even vomiting. While migraines can be linked to stress, many patients with headache and migraine problems also typically have neck pain issues, a family history of migraines, and nasal congestion. Chiropractic adjustment can help relieve these issues and allow you to get back to the activities you enjoy pain-free.
Prior to treatment, I will perform a physical exam to ensure that there are no other outside factors contributing to your pain. The first step of treatment will be to activate sensitive trigger points in your lower neck and upper back muscles. By stimulating these areas, the migraine symptoms can actually start to subside, and in some cases, can be relieved for good.
How you respond to this phase of treatment will determine how we proceed. We will also go over your sleep patterns and overall health to see if there are any abnormalities that need to be addressed. Sometimes these factors can play a role in your migraine problems, and being aware of the status of your health and sleep patterns can help me better treat you.
