Before starting care, I was taking 800mg of Tylenol Every. Single. Day! I felt like I was literally keeping them in business. I work in the healthcare field and tried everything, but never found relief until now. I can't tell you how relieved I feel not having to worry about another migraine episode!

I had been living with daily migraines for years and I was miserable. My head hurt so bad that it was affecting my ability to do my job at work and when I got home, all I could do is go straight to bed. All that has changed since coming under care. I noticed almost an immediate change in the frequency of migraines. As if today, I haven't had one in 3 months!

Migraine Headache Treatment | Relief For Rio Rancho, NM

Migraine Headaches, the ultimate buzzkill. The aching, throbbing pain that just won’t go away! They affect everything in your everyday life. Your relationship with family and friends, your ability to do your job, and can even affect your overall well-being. It’s likely that if you suffer from migraines, you’ve tried it all. Injections, medications, or massage and while they might provide some relief, it’s temporary at best.

For the majority of people, migraine symptoms present in your neck or between my shoulder blades as back and neck pain. Although the International Headache Society lists 129 different types of headaches, the general categories are tension, cluster and migraine with associated pain being described as sharp, stabbing, dull, throbbing and vice-like. Migraine headaches with or without aura are the most common form of acute recurrent migraine headaches.

“The negative impact of chronic headaches on quality of life, families, and productivity can be significant and is generally underrated by the medical profession.”
University of Maryland Medical Center

Different types of physical, chemical and emotional stress including fatigue, worry, noise, fluorescent lights, travel, improper sleep, smoke and food additives such as MSG and nitrates, often trigger migraine headaches. Although these things may trigger a migraine headache, the actual cause of the migraine headache is often a series of traumatic or repetitive micro-traumatic events including motor vehicle accidents, contact sports, postural habits, whiplash and occupational tasks. Migraine headaches and other symptoms may take weeks, months and even years to show up following these events!

Leading Cause of Migraine Headaches

Although headaches are not caused by just one specific source, a large amount of research clearly demonstrates that the majority of headaches are caused by problems in the cervical (neck) region of the spine. The vertebra of the cervical spine can become misaligned because of excessive or repetitive stress. These misalignments, also known as “vertebral subluxations” irritate the nerves in the neck and cause excessive muscle tension, all of which can contribute to a wide variety of headaches.

“Headaches are more frequently caused by spinal stress than any other condition.”
Journal of Occupational Trauma
