Pounding Head, Laying in Bed - Migraine Treatment

woman with headache Lights flashing. Head pounding. Dizziness and nausea set it. Those who have experienced this know all to well what I am referring to—a dreaded migraine!

These are nasty additions to the day and unfortunately for many, once one sets in, there isn’t much that has been able to provide relief. These can be quite debilitating and frustrating and I have seen many patients at their wits end, desperately looking for relief.

Chiropractic care is a great addition for individuals who suffer from Headaches and Migraines. Often times, tension is coming from the neck and bones of the skull. Some of the nerves that supply the head region, exit through the muscles just beneath the skull. Pressure in the skull, muscles or bones of the upper neck region can actually cause nerve irritation and is highly related to our perceived pain.

Through a combination of Chiropractic and Cranial Adjustments, a high percentage of patients notice relief! Cranial adjustments are sustained pressure holds to different areas of the skull and in my clinic, this type of treatment has actually stopped headaches dead in their tracks.

Another favourite for my patients is the addition of doTERRA peppermint oil. This has proven to be quite beneficial on a number of occasions. Best of all, it lasts a long way! A drop or two applied to the temples, or base of the skull/neck does wonders! This can even be applied to the muscles of the neck and shoulders for extra relief.

What do you do

When your head’s got you feeling blue?
You can’t think
And it hurts to blink
Off to a dark room
To face your doom
Attempting to sleep away the pain
But, if there was another way, what could you gain?
Cranial adjusting and peppermint oil work like a charm
And that neck might be the cause of all that harm
Chiropractic adjustments relieve some tension
And just may remove that pain you mention!

You don’t have to suffer the next time you get a headache or migraine. There are options out there that have been successful forms of pain relief! As always, my doors are always open for anybody who is looking for help.
Yours in health; body, mind and soul.

Dr. Julianne Donato, B.A., D.C.
