According to the latest research, about 30 million Americans suffer from migraine headaches, of which, more than half are severe enough to require patients to stay in bed and recover anywhere from 1 to 3 days. In addition to the headaches, migraine patients experience other symptoms such as blurred vision, vomiting, flu-like symptoms, stomach cramps and sensitivity to all light and sound, which may prolong this recovery period up to a week.
Taking time away from our busy schedules to recover from such episodes translate into lost work and income, missed classes and exams, as well as a general decline in the overall quality of life.
While there are medications that help alleviate the pain and suffering temporarily – both over-the-counter and prescribed, the real answer to fighting migraines is to repair the root of the problem and eliminate these episodes once and for all.
Chiropractic care has been proven to eliminate migraine headaches in most patients through relieving nerve pressure that often results from years of poor posture, or as a result of an accident or injury.
Downtown Seattle’s Dr. Justin Favreau of Stability Spine and Wellness specializes in exactly this type of chiropractic corrective care by conducting a thorough initial examination to determine the exact area that requires treatment, then developing a customized plan of action to target the very nerves that are responsible for your migraine headaches. Based on your specific case, treatments may include regular adjustments, traction, exercises and changes in your diet.
If you or someone you know is suffering from migraine headaches and is looking for a permanent solution to eliminate suffering for good, please contact one of Seattle’s most trusted chiropractors, Dr. Favreau for an appointment.
