Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to a throbbing, piercing migraine. You start getting burry vision, every sound or light is the most awful thing in the world, and you can't seem to shake it off. You try taking Excedrin for Migraines, chugging water, taking a hot shower, and every other at-home remedy you found online. Unfortunately, nothing makes it go away, and you face the fact that you're going to have to miss work. Because there is just no way that the pain is going to subside in the next few hours. You know what the rest of your day is going to like: laying in a dark room, pillow over your eyes, and hoping that you can fall asleep, and that when you wake up the migraine will be gone. Fingers crossed...
Does this sound familiar to you? If you suffer from migraines like these, you are not alone. The American Migraine Foundation estimates that at least 39 million Americans live with migraines, but because many people do not get a diagnosis or the treatment they need, the actual number is probably higher. That's crazy!!!!!
I once had a patient tell me that her life revolved around her migraines. She had to plan her entire day, weekend, even vacations around whether or not she had a migraine. She often had to call out of work, use her sick days and PTO, she even missed major milestone events for her kids, like theatre performances or football games. Her migraines completely controlled her life. Her career suffered, her relationship with her kids suffered, and her marriage definitely suffered. She was desperate for a solution.
When she heard about Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic helping people with migraines, she was willing to give it a shot. She came into my office in tears and willing to try anything that could give her her life back. Even small parts of her life. She just wanted to be able to plan a fun date night with her partner or pool day with her kids without letting them down. When I sat down with her and listened to her story, her story touched my heart and I began to cry because I knew that I would be able to help her find relief and help her gain her life back. I was so glad that she came into my office that day.
As an Atlas Orthogonal chiropractor, I would say about half of the patients that come to see me are seeking migraine relief. Atlas Orthogonal is a safe, effective, and gentle migraine treatment. It focuses on realigning the top of the spine with a very light pressure. There is no twisting, cracking, or popping involved with the procedure. X-rays are taken to specifically analyze what is going on at the top of the spine and locate the source of your migraines. While every body is different, the results of this treatment on migraines are quite profound as people often report a significant decrease in migraine frequency and intensity shortly after beginning treatment.
If this story sounds like you, please give me a call. I would love to help you regain your life and get back to doing the things you love with the people you life. Migraines do not have to be what defines you anymore. I offer complimentary consultations and if this office is not the right fit for you, I promise to let you know. I look forward to meeting you.
