Migraine treatment Lubbock, TX

At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we take great pride in being your trusted Lubbock, TX chiropractor. What many of our new and prospective patients don't realize, however, is that chiropractic treatment can be effective in treating so much more than just back and neck pain. In fact, did you know that the right chiropractic techniques can be used to treat ongoing headaches and migraines?

Types of Migraines: Classic & Common

If you suffer from recurring migraines, it's important to understand the two main types of migraines and their symptoms. The two major categories of migraines include classic and common, the former of which are characterized by the presence of auras.

Specifically, migraine auras are "red flags" sent out by the body to indicate that a migraine is coming on. About one third of people who suffer from migraines experience auras, which can vary greatly depending on the specific signal or signals sent out by the body. For example, those who experience retinal migraines may experience a full or partial loss of vision in one eye prior to the migraine occurring. Others, such as those with hemiplegic migraines, may experience symptoms such as temporary paralysis, dizziness, or numbness on one side of the body.

Common migraines, on the other hand, do not have auras; they come on suddenly and without warning.

Migraine Treatment in Lubbock Texas

No matter what type of migraine you tend to experience, it's important to seek the proper migraine treatment in Lubbock Texas. At Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine, we have the chiropractic tools and resources to treat many of the root causes of ongoing headaches and migraines, along with the common visual auras that can come along with them.

For example, one of the most common treatment methods we use for migraines here in our office is known as the MiRx Protocol SGP nerve block, which is essentially used to anesthetize nerve bundles using a specialized nasal spray, which can stop a migraine in its tracks. We also encourage chiropractic adjustments as a means of treating recurring migraines, in addition to consulting with our team to come up with a lifestyle and nutritional plan. You may be surprised at what a different a few minor lifestyle and diet changes can make in helping you find relief from your migraines and reduce their occurrence altogether.
