Migraine Pain Relief With Our Chiropractor in Cupertino

Migraine Pain Relief With Our Chiropractor in Cupertino

Do you remember that geometry rule from school that says "all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares"? Well, the same concept applies to chronic migraines and headaches.

A migraine is considered a moderate to severe type of headache. It's often triggered by alcohol, certain foods, and hormonal changes, as well as emotional anxiety and stress, but can also come on for no apparent reason.

Migraines can present with or without what's known as an aura, a pre-migraine sensation that alerts a person their migraine is coming. Aura symptoms may include mental fogginess, visual disturbances, an unusual sense of smell or taste, or tingling in the hands or face. 

Migraines vs. Headaches

Compared to regular headaches, migraine pain can be so severe that a person can become temporarily debilitated. The pain is often described as intense and throbbing, and typically is experienced on one side of the head. A migraine sufferer may also experience vomiting, nausea, dizziness, and hypersensitivity to light and sound during their headache, which are not typical with other types of headaches. A person may even need to lie down in a quiet and dark room during their migraine, and may be incapacitated for hours. 

Headaches and migraines also differ in terms of what causes them. General headaches are quiet heterogeneous and can vary wildly in terms of type (tension, cluster, sinus) and cause (e.g., muscle tension, congestion, postural imbalances, stress, etc.). While it's not completely clear what causes chronic migraines, some working theories include a genetic predisposition or a disruption of important neurochemical and/or circulatory pathways (specifically, a sudden dilation of blood vessels within the head).

  • "Dr Choi fixed my upper back problem which had been bothering me for years! I tried whateve I can out there (massage therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic.....) and none seems to work permanently. I still go back to the clinic and get check up regularly.

    The clinic is clean and the reservation reminder is handy. I would totally recommend Next chiropractic & sports clinic!"
