Migraines and Chronic Headaches

Do you suffer from migraine or chronic headaches? Chances are you’re missing out on a lot of life due to pain. While taking over the counter and prescription meds or placing yourself in a dark quiet room may help ease symptoms, you need a solution that gets to the root cause of your headaches.

Migraine and chronic headaches are surprisingly common and can be excruciatingly painful.

It feels like a vice around my head. I have a stabbing sensation in my eye and temple. I’m nauseated. I can’t stand lights or sound.

If you’ve had similar sentiments as the above ones, it may be time to look for answers. Dr. Vance takes a different approach to the management of headaches.

Headaches have biomechanical causes: triggerpoints, tender taut musculature, fixated joints. Quite often headache sufferers have tender points in their neck and shoulder. Manual therapies are needed to solve these issues.

Headaches and migraines are also neurological in nature and affect the autonomic nervous system. Autonomics control things like your ability to digest food, and the flow of blood through your body. For this reason, it is common to see symptoms of like dizziness and nausea with migraines. In fact, migraines are considered a small seizure inside the brain.
