You Are Suffering From Migraine Headaches.
What can you do to actually help the problem?
Being a migraine headache sufferer, you know what it is like to be closed in a dark room just trying to get some relief.
You are suffering, that is a fact.
But what can you do about it to actually fix the problem.
Migraine headaches can be completely debilitating. Everything gets harder with migraines and just getting through the day can be not only a feat in itself but can also bring on waves of total exhaustion. And if you get a migraine bad enough you will often feel nausea and end up vomiting.
Migraine headaches can effect anyone, although women tend to have a higher prevalence of migraines than men.
Often migraine headaches can present in two ways:
- Classic Migraine: migraine headache with the presence of an aura, which often looks like a lot of lights or dots in your vision. Sometimes migraines will cause other disruptions to your vision. Classic migraine headaches often begin with what is called a prodrome (essentially a warning you about to get a headache). This prodrome often consists of an increasing blind spot surrounded by flashing lights. Often this will last for about 30 minutes before being replaced by a debilitating headache that can last anywhere from 1-3 days.
- Common Migraine: migraine headache without the presence of an aura. Which means you still get all the symptoms except for the flashy lights or dots. Common migraine headaches, without an aura, are often felt on one side of the head and are recurrent. There are no neurological or visual symptoms, but nausea and vomiting can accompany the headache.
Regardless of which migraine headache you suffer from, they can be equally debilitating.
There are many possible reasons why migraines occur which is why it is important to understand the exact cause of your migraine headaches so that the appropriate treatment can be administered. Many people seek relief on their own and often look at treatments that are usually just a band-aid solution to a much larger underlying problem.
At Pure we approach migraine headaches as a team. That means that you get Chiropractors, Physiotherapists, Massage Therapists and Kinesiologists reviewing your case file as a team and together they make appropriate recommendations that are specific to your condition.
When you present to Pure with migraine headaches our team of practitioners performs an extensive case history, a detailed and specific examination based on your condition and if necessary appropriate imaging, such as X-Ray and MRI, are obtained. It is through this detailed process that we investigate and diagnose the exact cause of your migraine headaches.
We then recommend and provide appropriate treatment based on your condition to get you healing as quickly and effectively as possible.
Every individual is unique and your condition should be treated as unique.
That is what we do at Pure.

I came to Pure, suffering from migraines, and was surprised that I actually got asked what was bothering me. I got assessed and x-rayed and they came up with a plan to help. Ever since coming, my migraines have almost been eradicated, as well as my lower back pain. I was glad to know that they treated the problem and provided long term care compared to temporary relief.*Christina M.
Before starting at Pure, I dealt with extreme migraine headaches, TMJ, and lots of back and neck pain. After a few adjustments, I noticed a major difference. I wasn't constantly looking for pain killers, and I'm proud to say my life has dramatically changed forever since chiropractic became a part of it.*Wendy R.
After many years of suffering from migraine headaches nearly every day I finally caved and found a chiropractor. I'm so glad I found Pure. I rarely, if ever, get headaches any more and I have so much more energy. Because Pure believes in helping a person achieve complete overall health - mind, body and spirit - I'm on a path that not only benefits me, but my whole family.*Danita O.
