Migraines and Headaches

Symptoms of a migraine


Migraines tend to have severe and incapacitating symptoms such as:

  • Pounding or Pulsating
  • Extreme pain on one or both sides of the head
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Extreme Sensitivity to Light and Sound
  • Hallucinations or "aura" 
  • Psychosis or dissassociation 

Symptoms of a headache


Headaches are different from Migraines in that they are less severe. Many of the symptoms of a headache may be similar to a migraine but are not severe in nature.

Just because they are less severe does not mean they do not interrupt the life of those that experience them. Addressing headaches before they become more sever or chronic can help you avoid interventional care and drugs in the future

What causes Migraines and Headaches


  • Tiredness or not getting enough sleep
  • Eating foods you are sensitive too
  • Muscle tension in your shoulder and neck
  • Poor Posture
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Misalignment of the bones in the spine or neck 
  • Low blood sugar

If our Physician suspects there is a more severe issue causing your brain you will be referred to a specialist to rule out any underlying conditions.

Success Stories

I was suffering with severe migraines. I was taking medications but they didn’t help. I got a food sensitivity test and I was surprised that I had severe sensitivity to the cinnamon and apple cider vinegar that I took every morning for health. I followed the elimination diet and my migraines were gone within one week. I tapered off my medication and don’t use it anymore!

I started coming to Modern Health because I was in a car accident 2 years ago. I was told I wasn't supposed to make it out of the accident. Now with only being a few weeks in I'm feeling almost back to normal. I was experiencing pain and migraines everyday. 24/7. I now get minimal headaches, have very little body pain and feel like I an get back to my normal life. I recommend him to anyone.t.

I came in for lower back pain and headaches. I haven’t had a headache in 2 weeks since my first adjustment and my back pain has been greatly reduced as well.
