Can a Chiropractor Help with Migraines?

Migraine pain can be debilitating. While there is unfortunately no cure for migraines, chiropractors can provide a non-invasive alternative or complementary treatment to medicine that helps alleviate migraine pain. We will work with you to determine what is the root cause of your migraines and determine the best course of action to help eliminate your migraine pain. 

At Genesis Chiropractic, we utilize a series of treatments including spinal adjustments that reduces nerve pressure and increases blood flow through the central nervous system. This can help reduce your migraine pain as well as the neck pain, stiffness, and muscle tension often associated with it. In order to determine if chiropractic care is right for you, we will perform a consultation and examination before treatment can begin.
