Migraine Headaches Jacksonville
When people get headaches, many rush to find the nearest over the counter or prescription medication in order to get some sort of relief. If that headache happens to be a migraine, feeling better can be a challenge, even with the strongest medication. Like most medicines, headache and migraine medicines are a mixed blessing. It may relieve the symptoms of a headache, but taking too much can result in other health problems down the line.

Finding alternatives to addictive prescription medications is one of the reasons why many people are treating migraine headaches in Jacksonville with chiropractic treatments at Beach Boulevard Chiropractic Massage Rehab. While many elements of these headaches remain a mystery, there is a strong hypothesis that chemical imbalances in the brain contribute to these headaches.
Are Headaches "All In The Head"?
The communication between blood vessels and the inflamed fibers feed on each other resulting in a seemingly infinite loop of pain. Chiropractors don't believe that migraines are all in the head. In fact, these and other headaches may begin in the spine and are caused by a misalignment that leaves a person vulnerable to chemical imbalances. When someone is experiencing a migraine, it is believed that blood vessels are dilating in the brain thus inflaming sensitive nerve fibers. By getting the spine to properly align, many of those imbalances are corrected, providing relief for head pain without resorting to potentially harmful medications.
We also provide patients with advice on exercises that can be done on their own to better manage painful migraine conditions.
