Migraine Symptoms

Migraine triggers in various ways, creating agony and impeding normal activities. Among the common symptoms are 

1. Partial or total vision loss

Vision disturbances are common during migraine attacks, often taking the form of an aura. An aura may consist of partial or total vision loss characterized by blind spots, flashes of light or zigzag patterns. Usually this symptom precedes headache symptoms and lasts anywhere from several minutes up to several hours before subsiding completely

2. Dizziness

Dizziness or vertigo are symptoms that many migraine sufferers report experiencing during a migraine attack, sometimes before, during, or even after its pain has subsided. Dizziness during migraine attacks may become so disorienting that daily activities become difficult to undertake without difficulty.

3. Poor muscle coordination

Poor muscle coordination, or ataxia, may accompany migraines. This symptom typically manifests itself through clumsiness, difficulty walking or unsteady movements – often coinciding with other neurological symptoms and becoming particularly distressful for sufferers.

4. Slurred speech

Speech disturbances, such as slurred speech and dysarthria, may also be symptoms. While these temporary issues usually resolve themselves as the migraine subsides.

5. Ear ringing

Speech disturbances, such as slurred speech and dysarthria, may also be symptoms. While these temporary issues usually resolve themselves as the migraine subsides.

6. Fainting

Rarely, migraines may lead to fainting, also known as syncope. This usually results from either an unexpectedly large drop in blood pressure or intense pain-response reactions during an attack – though fainting during migraine attacks is unusual, its occurrence should always be taken seriously and medical attention must be sought immediately.

In case you are experiencing any of the symptoms, our chiropractic expertise can provide the relief you are seeking.

How Our Chiropractors Treat Your Migraine?

Migraine treatment in Santa Cruz is not one-size-fits-all. Our approach is rooted in personalization, recognizing the unique nature of your pain. We offer many options to help you with the complicated parts of your migraine. Such as,

Spinal Adjustments

Precision in Motion Spinal adjustments lie at the core of chiropractic care for migraines. Our chiropractors employ precise and targeted techniques to realign the vertebrae, focusing mainly on the upper cervical spine. By correcting misalignments, these adjustments aim to,

  • Restore the natural balance of the spine
  • Alleviating tension
  • Promoting optimal nervous system function

Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustments

Navigating the Epicenter The upper cervical region, where the head meets the neck, is often a crucial area of focus in migraine treatment in Santa Cruz. Our chiropractors use specialized techniques to manipulate and correct misalignments in this delicate area gently. Upper cervical adjustments strive to relieve those suffering from migraines by addressing issues at the epicenter of nerve pathways.

Atlas Orthogonal Technique

Precision without Force The Atlas, the first cervical vertebra, is pivotal in maintaining balance. The Atlas Orthogonal Technique involves precise adjustments using a percussion instrument to realign the Atlas gently. This non-invasive approach aims to restore proper alignment without manual force, providing a gentle yet effective option for migraine sufferers.
