What are migraines?

Migraines are severe headaches often accompanied by nausea, visual disturbances (or auras), and extreme sensitivity to bright lights, loud sounds or odors. Migraines can last for less than an hour to more than a day. Migraine headaches are often associated with “trigger” events like extreme or chronic stress, hormonal fluctuations or illnesses, but sometimes, they can occur without any apparent triggering event preceding them.

What causes migraines?

For many years, medical researchers believed migraines were caused by vascular problems, but today, most researchers believe the headaches are caused by a combination of factors, including circulation issues, nervous system issues, and even muscle related issues. Because it focuses on all theses systems, chiropractic care can be very effective in reducing migraine symptoms, decreasing the severity of symptoms and even decreasing the frequency of headache episodes.

How do chiropractors treat migraine headaches?

Chiropractic treatment for migraine headaches begins with a hands-on evaluation of the spine and surrounding areas to look for trigger points (muscle “knots”) and other issues that can contribute to headache pain, as well as a review of the patient’s symptoms and any known triggers. Often, migraine headache pain is exacerbated by issues involving the spine, including “pinched” nerves and related inflammation. Using hands-on techniques combined with passive and active exercises can help identify issues that can contribute to headache pain. Spinal adjustments and therapeutic massage can help relieve nerve impingements and tissue inflammation while also promoting circulation to make it easier for damaged tissues to heal. In addition, deep-tissue massage techniques can break apart muscle knots or adhesions that restrict normal, healthy movement and contribute to stress, neck pain and headaches. Finally, lifestyle guidance can help patients improve their musculoskeletal health and their overall health to reduce the risk of headache recurrence as well as reduce the intensity of symptoms.

Can chiropractors relieve other types of headaches?

Yes, chiropractic care is effective in relieving pain associated with cluster headaches, tension headaches, and headaches caused by trigger points and chronic stress. Each treatment plan is customized to suit the needs of the individual patient for optimal results.

Our family has a long term relationship with MAC. Our needs were addressed directly in our first visits and we were given an detailed program to follow.

The Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic continuously strives to provide its customers with holistic chiropractic wellness. Specializing in a range of different chiropractic techniques, our services can be utilized for various medical conditions. This includes posture correction and chiropractor treatment for migraines, back pain, sciatica, and pediatric chiropractic.

Our services have been carefully designed to incorporate state-of-the-art techniques and newer methods to provide safe and effective results. Taking a personalized approach to each client, we work with a set of “blueprint” techniques that are modified on a case-to-case basis. This strategy ensures patients benefit from tried and tested treatment methods while targeting their unique needs.  Since every condition impacts patients differently, our highly versatile approach provides consistent results across clientele and the severity of symptoms.

Here is a brief description of all the services offered at Mid Atlantic Clinic of Chiropractic:

Chiropractic Care:

This includes advanced spinal corrective treatment to address a range of issues, including leg pain, back pain, and spine misalignment. Our chiropractic care utilizes special manipulative therapy techniques that can help increase the range of motion, promote balance, realign the spine, and reduce inflammation. Chiropractic care can be beneficial for pregnant women suffering from back pain. It can also help athletes and veterans with injury rehabilitation.

Corrective Exercises and Spinal Rehabilitation Program:

Depending on their needs and requirements, clients may be assigned different techniques and exercises for faster recovery. However, corrective exercises and techniques are commonly used for spine rehabilitation and other back-related conditions. With over 30-40% correction rate, these exercises are easy to follow and can be conveniently carried out in the comfort of your home. In addition to spinal rehabilitation, these exercises are designed to help with muscle and connective tissue misalignment.

Cox Flexion Distraction:

Cox Flexion Distraction is a popular manipulative technique effective for chiropractic treatments. This hands-on spinal manipulation technique relieves back, neck and leg pain and severe spinal conditions. The Cox Flexion Distraction technique decompresses the spine through gentle stretching or applying traction to the lower spine. It is a non-surgical treatment that can also restore the range of motion in the joints and muscles, promoting flexibility and better posture.

Lifestyle Advice:

In addition to corrective and manipulative techniques for back relief, our chiropractic clinic also provides lifestyle coaching. Patients are informed and guided on avoiding specific activities that may make their symptoms worse. The service ensures patients can lead happy and fulfilling life without compromising their quality of living.

Nutritional Counseling:

Nutritional counseling services provide individualized dietary plans catering to patients' nutritional needs. This includes everything from a strictly structured diet for optimal recovery to prescription supplements to combat deficiencies.

Spinal & Postural Screenings:

Several reasons may contribute to posture and spinal issues. For effective results, we utilize screenings to reveal the overall functioning of muscles in alignment with the bones. This can help identify root problems and provides an indication of the overall condition of your spine.

Foot Levelers:

In cases where postural problems are caused due to a misaligned spine or pelvis, we also provide custom-made functional orthotics to correct imbalances in the feet. Unlike over-the-counter foot levels, our orthotics are designed to promote whole-body wellness.
