Migraines are a type of headache that is much more severe, painful and recurring. They can be accompanied by dizziness, nausea and extreme sensitivity to light. Sometimes migraines are accompanied by warning signs and other symptoms which immediately precede their onset. One of the initial signs might be a severe headache on one side of the head. Some people also experience a slight distortion of the facial muscles similar to an extreme frown and may feel pressure behind the eyeballs. Migraines are quite debilitating and can severely limit, or stop us, performing our normal daily activities.

Migraines can make it hard to ‘think straight’ according to sufferers. Nine of every ten people suffering from migraine, report that their symptoms keep them from doing day-to-day tasks, according to the NHS. Stress is one of the most common triggers for the onset of a migraine.

Some common symptoms of migraines include:

  • Numbness in parts of the head and face during migraine aura
  • Neck pain which radiates towards the head
  • Problems concentrating or paying attention
  • Changes in your sense of taste and touch
  • Heightened sensitivity to smell
  • Tough time reading or writing
  • Throbbing feeling in the head
  • Sensitivity to light and sound
  • Difficulty making decisions
  • Auditory hallucinations
  • Dull aching sensation
  • Trouble speaking
  • Blurred vision
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea

At Healing Hands Chiropractic, we examine migraine problems in the context of your medical history and overall health as well as measurable mind and body imbalances. During the first visit we carry out our unique 10-step measurement-based chiropractic check-up.

We measure stress levels, heart rate variability, oxygen levels in the blood, nerve function and muscular-skeletal imbalances as part of our thorough initial consultation. Connecting what’s going on in your body, with your symptoms helps us understand what is contributing directly or indirectly to the problem. This then enables us to formulate a root cause diagnosis. From there we can create a personalised measurement-based care plan.
