Migraine headaches are recurrent/episodic, moderate or severe headaches which are usually one-sided, pulsating, aggravated by routine physical activity and are associated with nausea, vomiting, photophobia or phonophobia (lights and noise aggravate the condition).
Often they are accompanied by neck pain, with the joints and muscles of the neck actually giving rise to the headache. If you suffer from neck pain alongside migraines, you may find the two are related and be treated for both to relieve your pain.. There is evidence to show the benefit of chiropractic treatment with spinal manipulation, mobilization and soft tissue work for these conditions. Chiropractors are able to restore alignment which will relieve tension and pressure that contributes to headaches.
