Migraine Headaches do not have to be a pain.

Migraine headaches are a debilitating condition affecting between 8-12% of people. In the United States alone, migraines are estimated to cost the US between $5-$17 billion. Those suffering with migraines often experiences severe side effects from common medications such as digestive issues, lethargy, light sensitivity, and sedation.


Chiropractic care for migraine headaches has few adverse side effects and has been shown through research to decrease frequency, duration, and severity of migraines.  In a 2005 case study, a 49-year-old woman experienced severe headaches following a car accident. Over a 12-week period her pain reduced from a 7/10 to a 2/10. In addition, the patients range of motion increased dramatically.
