Migraine & Headache Teatment | Katy, Texas

What is a migraine?

A migraine is an intense headache accompanied by symptoms including throbbing localized pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light and sound. Patients experience migraines either on a one-off basis or chronically for many years before appropriate treatment is found. Chronic Migraines are often successfully managed with careful treatment and preventative medicine. Warning signs known as “aura” may occur before or with a headache. Auras are symptoms of the nervous system. They are usually visual disturbances, such as flashes of light or wavy, zigzag vision. Some preventative care is used daily and other treatments are used at the first signs of a migraine.   

Are there different types of migraines?

There are different types of migraines. They are categorized by their associated symptom. Doctors recognize seven varieties of migraines. They include a migraine with or without an aura; with or without a headache; a basilar migraine (balance issues); hemiplegic migraine, which affects one side of the body much the same way a stroke would, and an ophthalmoplegic migraine, which affects the eye and eye movement. Some of these are very rare while others are much more common.

How our chiropractic care can help you with migraine?

Migraines treatment is complex. Doctors do not fully understand why migraines occur. Therefore, there is no specific treatment that will stop or prevent a migraine 100 percent. For eefective treatment of your migraine, it is very important to understand what type of migraines from which you suffer. Finding a care to your specific case might be as easy as making different lifestyle choices. Migraines are caused by the expansion and contraction of blood vessels which cause a pressure change in the brain. Chiropractic treatment can help patients to find out out what type of migraines they have and if there are common triggers. Chiropractic treatment can also help people make positive lifestyle changes. Additionally, Dr. Ramsey helps improve the connection of nerves from the brain to the muscles through a higher form of chiropractic touch called Network.
