Migraine Relief From Our Lexington Chiropractor
Migraine headaches are a relatively common phenomenon thought to affect at least 37 million Americans. It is considered by some doctors to be a neurological disorder, however, the exact cause is unknown. One of the most common theories is that migraines occur as a result of a sudden restriction followed by a sudden opening of blood vessels within the neck and head. Migraines are also possibly related to small misalignments within the spine that may put pressure on surrounding blood vessels and spinal nerves. They can come on with no warning, or be triggered by any number of stimuli including stress, certain foods and beverages, sleep (or lack thereof), physical activity, weather, allergies, bright lights, and so on.
