How Chiropractic Works To Eliminate Migraines | Chiropractor for Migraines in Belmar, NJ

Hello, I’m Dr. Jody Kinney, and today I’m excited to kick off a series of videos focused on treating migraine headaches through chiropractic care. Migraines are not just any headache; they’re a severe, debilitating condition that significantly impacts the lives of those who suffer from them. Many of our patients find remarkable relief from migraines with our chiropractic treatments because we address the root cause, often found not in the head but in the neck.

Understanding Migraines

A crucial realization is that the majority of migraine headaches originate from the neck. Specifically, issues arise from the upper part of the neck, where misalignments or what we refer to in chiropractic as subluxations, can occur. These subluxations can pinch the nerves at the top of the neck, affecting blood vessels, eye muscles, and scalp muscles, leading to the intense pain associated with migraines.

Demonstrating a Chiropractic Adjustment

To illustrate how we address these subluxations, I want to share how a typical adjustment might look in our practice. Our goal is to correct the movement and motion in the upper part of the spine, relieving nerve pressure and, in turn, alleviating migraine headaches.

The Adjustment Process

Preparation: We begin with gentle muscle work to relax the area and prepare for the adjustment. It’s essential for the patient to remain as relaxed as possible to ensure an effective treatment.

  • Identification of Subluxations: By feeling the neck, I can identify areas where the vertebrae may be out of alignment or fixated. It’s almost like sensing a bolt that has shifted out of its proper place.
  • Adjustment Technique: Keeping the patient’s head resting comfortably, I apply targeted pressure to correct the subluxation. The adjustment is precise, and designed to restore proper alignment and movement without causing discomfort.
  • Post-Adjustment Care: After the adjustment, we recommend a moment of rest with gentle stretching to allow the body to accept the changes and maintain the improved motion in the spine.

Transforming Lives Through Chiropractic

The impact of these adjustments on migraine sufferers is profound. A significant majority of our patients report a drastic reduction or even complete cessation of their migraine headaches. This non-invasive, drug-free approach not only alleviates pain but also contributes to overall wellness and quality of life.
