The World Health Organization lists Migraine as the sixth most disabling disorder globally, and the most disabling of all neurological disorders. If you have migraines you know this is true. Migraines and headaches may have multiple causes and need specific treatment. Sometimes headaches or migraines may be caused by spinal or brain imbalances and other times your body may be reacting to chemicals, dietary proteins or other outside stimulus. Migraine affects females 3:1. Migraines are described as a disorder of brain sensory processing and can be influenced by genetics and the environment. We use a functional medicine model to get at the root causes of your migraines so you can have relief and get back to health.
MIGRAINES AND HEADACHES CAN HAVE MULTIPLE POTENTIAL CAUSES.
Regarding the structural and neurological aspects, evaluating a patient for chronic headaches or migraines, we assess the neck, the head, the muscles and how they all work together in addition to our thorough brain assessment. As a chiropractic neurologist, we consider how the neurological system is integrating which includes:
- the oculomotor system (eyes)
- the inner ear system (vestibular)
- the balance and coordination systems (cerebellum)
- the fuel supply (autonomic system)
- the motoric system (frontal lobe)
- the limbic system (emotions and thoughts)
- the sensory system (parietal lobe).
These issues could be contributing to your suffering:
- FOOD TRIGGERS CAUSING AN INFLAMMATORY REACTION
- BLOOD SUGAR DYSREGULATION
- LEAKY GUT
- THYROID DYSFUNCTION
- LIVER TOXICITY
- ADRENAL ISSUES
- IMBALANCED HORMONES
