Our Approach to Treating Migraines
At Soma Chiro & Functional Medicine, we treat migraines by addressing both the physical and chemical triggers.
To address the physical triggers, we use gentle chiropractic adjustments to the cervical spine and targeted myofascial trigger point therapy to tight cervical musculature. This helps relieve tension and stress to the cervical spine.
To address the chemical triggers, we initially recommend an elimination diet that includes eliminating dairy, gluten/wheat, sugar, yeast, coffee/tea, beef, chocolate, and corn. We then recommend a modified paleo-mediterranean diet which helps to “alkalinize” the body.
Finally, we carry clinical-grade supplements in our office that includes effective combinations of the above vitamins and herbs. By addressing both the physical and chemical triggers of migraines we can help prevent and relieve migraines effectively with fewer risks and side effects than drugs alone.
