Did you know…?
Migraine headaches are one of the most debilitating disorders impacting people in Boulder County? Headaches in general and especially migraines are caused by a problem in the nervous system. That means that alternative treatments like chiropractic, massage, or acupuncture may be able to help you, even if you have tried everything!
Here’s a quick video going over migraine headaches, what they are, and how to address them!
Migraine headaches are caused by a change in the nervous system
What that means is as the brain and the body are sending messages back and forth, some disruption has occurred leading to the symptoms of a migraine. The nervous system is a fancy way of saying your brain, brain stem, spinal cord, and all the nerves that go to every muscle, organ, and cell in the body.
Have you ever had testing done of your nervous system?
If the answer is ‘I don’t think so’, then this is the place to start. Often time people will eliminate the triggers of migraines which helps but very few ever get to the root cause of the issue! Wouldn’t it make sense to go to the source rather than try and address the symptoms?
Where can I get my nervous system tested?
Often times the patients we see in the office have had really specialized testing done like MRIs or CT scans and the results have come back negative, nothing was found. So we use a different kind of test called CIT, computerized infrared thermography, to look at how the brain stem is functioning. If you haven’t had this type of test done yet, give us a call for a complimentary consultation.
If this sounds like the ‘missing link’ you have been searching for give us a call at 303.442.5911. One call could give you the hope you have been looking for all these years. Even if you think you’ve tried everything, I guarantee you will not be disappointed by reaching out to us.
