In the beginning, spots or lines or colored lights may dance before your eyes. Soon a whole plethora of symptoms may ensue. Then the pain hits. It can range from minor discomfort to immobilizing agony and can last from minutes to days. The pain most likely occurs on only one side of the head along with nausea and vomiting. This is the classic migraine that millions of people, including children, live with.
Research reveals migraine sufferers have abnormal nerve firings in the brain and spinal cord. This may be why chiropractic helps so many migraine sufferers and it dovetails with prior findings that headaches can be caused by structural distortions.
A study of 6,000 people who suffered from recurring headaches from two to 25 years showed that spine injury was the most important factor in the cause of the headache and should be suspected in every case of headache.
Anyone suffering from headache of any type would do well to see their chiropractor to ensure that their spine is free of subluxations. If there are subluxations in the spine, no amount of drugs will correct them—a chiropractic adjustment is essential.
